Yes, I made it meself. I tried over the years to get one of those; difficult if not impossible. I heard that the thermos they used in BR was with a different model cup than the one fitting on top.
In the picture the cup is suppose to snap on the top of the thermos that's why there's no handle on the original (simple cup, no handle), but they decided to have one with a handle...don't know why.

Thanks Andy for the link...Gee Dub asked how it was made; I simply took a PVC pipe and applied pieces of plasti-card on top. The cap is made from a Canon ink drum (industrial photocopy machine). Metalic paint and a mat varnish for the finishing touch.

your description of what you did just made it a 100X cooler in my book. just an awesome effort and a tip of the hat to your creativity. never would'a though of using PVC.

cheers joberg - you never cease to amaze!

Thanks Photek...yeah, anything goes into the construction of a scratch-built prop; the possibilities (and materials)are endless

Thanks Fred...seeing the original, mine is not quite accurate. Since I have many projects going on at once; at one point in time, I'll redo the thermos to make it closer to the one in the film.
