I've found the phone. The calc is a toughie. However, I've found several slide viewers, but I can't tell which one is the correct one. Can some one post a picture, "pre-mod"? Did it have a base, or a side attachment? Also, for those with a full calculator, what are the odds of getting casting?

I am not 100% sure of the accurate slide viewer, or if it is even a slide viewer for sure. The Panaview 2 1950's style is the closest thing I have found.

I choosed the Kaiser slide viewer because it was basically a rectangle box with straight sides. The only thing I'm concerned about the Panaview is that the design is a trapeze. So the side are getting narrower toward the rear of the screen, making the overall look of the Vid-Phone (and looking at the screen/pics captures of Leon's interview) different than in the movie. As for a mold of an original MQ-11 it would be difficult, but not impossible.

I saw a tutorial on the RPF showing how to do a step by step motion tracker used in Aliens. The slide viewer was made by Hama...looks like it could be used for the Vid-Phone also...or a another type of Vid-Phone

You could always say that having 1 phone is pointless, no one to ring Very Happy

Well, well, well, to answer that question, here's my new project...again, not accurate, but close enough; now if I can convince my GF to part with the tube of her hairdryer (should not be long now ) I'll have a complete Vid-Phone. Still work to do...

I used a 0.2mm thick plastic; it's easy then to sand the edge to a nice round form.

ABS seems hard to work with. Is it PVC??

Bought this last night. Looks exactly like the one used by joberg on his vidphone


They say they have two more if anyone is interested

Sorry Jameth, I usually use Syntra or Plasti-Card or Evergreen, these are the trade-marks. Your hobby store will help you with your selection.
I use contact cement with all my work, also a good glue gun is a must.
Good find on the Kaiser . Don't forget, if you use a Kaiser, you'll have to find/scratch-build the calculator.
