    Could you make another that is just plain and sell it? I could pay you via PayPal or I could send you cash.

    The aluminum is a mix of online purchases, the hardware store, and scrap from around the garage. The copper is 16oz rolled roof flashing from a local supplier. The rivets came from http://www.rjleahy.com/.

    This is awesome. It'll be eligible for the Halloween Props contest later this year, and it could even perform well in that contest with a full tutorial. :D

    That looks amazing! I'm just wondering how you made the blue part in the centre that surrounds the star?
