I found a 1977 Millennium Falcon toy years ago (most sure it was 1995 or 1996) for two dollars missing all the parts. I always wanted one as a kid. I stored it for a couple of years when I decided it would make a great Technics 1200 turntable mod. So with a little help from my friends at Green Guy Recycling for the recycled metal all I needed was a bit more supplies and a little a lot of patience since start to finish took me almost nine months to make.
Ok, until I get access to a scanner, I can't show all the steps in the construction since all of the pictures I have are on 35mm prints; remember pre-2003? Me too- more film and less .jpg sharing.
I'll put more pictures up about the construction soon.
So here are the pictures that I said I would post about the construction. I built this turntable in the first warehouse art co-op studio we rented on Feltner Alley in San Marcos, TX. Luckily I had a cool landlord that when finding out I was living in the warehouse was ok with it (temperatures did get down to freezing inside during the wintertime, so I always kind of had to be motivated to move around and stay warm). I'll link the full images to thumbnails later later when I have a chance.
