Once everything is assembled, all of the details like weathering, graphics, and effects can be airbrushed on the exterior like the concept drawing.

I've had this .5" x 25" flexible conduit lying around, I've always wanted to use it for routing cables. It fits the industrial theme. I've also got .25" i.d. flexible conduit.

Here is the Prawn canister from the movie.

My canister will be lit with a 4" UV cold cathode, mounted on the inside wall of the back cover.

Once it's painted and the window is darkened a bit, it should look eerie.

Thank you for tuning in and commenting!

I made the canister's window today. Using a heat gun to bend the Lexan.

Forming the arc in window by pressing heated piece on the Aluminum rod. It's HOT!

The window will be painted to look murky, like the original canister
