Thanks for the tutorial and supply list.

I don't mind saying again that this is a fantastic prop!

Sure thing man, I actually picked up the tank on sale at PetsMart for a few bucks, but you can always see if friends or family have one lying around.

The main parts are:

  • A Plastic Tank
  • Blacklight Flashlight (275nm spectrum)
  • Prop Skull
  • Hex Bugs Nano
  • Cardboard, PVC Pipe, Foamcore & Craft Foam (for top pieces)
  • Copper Wire, Screws & Plastic Bolts
  • Acrylic Paint (Black, Brown, Green, Auqa, Red, White & Bronze.)
  • UV Red/Pink Paint (for bug eyes)
  • Metal Feet (Scrapbook Isle at Michael’s)
  • Beaded Cable Tie (Cut up for eyes)
  • Fur Yarn? (Not sure what it’s called)
  • Liquid Latex
  • Tissue Paper & Cotton Balls
  • Fake Eyeball & (1/2) Prop Eye (Amazon)
  • Inkjet Printable Mailing Labels (For custom stickers / Radioactive)
  • Regular and Super Strength Glue Sticks

That’s a pretty extensive list, but covers just about everything that was used to make this prop.

So how about a prop build list. Better yet remind me where you got the tank, was it big lots ?

It was a fun prop to build Woodsy! I really enjoyed aging and weather the parts and want to build more props that use those techniques in the future. Thanks!
