Just wanted to share with you guys this mini "build" Very Happy

I'm making Ripleys wrist watch from ALIEN and FINALLY got hold of two Casio F-100s AND the original wrist band. The watches you usually see on ebay has new bands, and now having the original I see why: The plastic becomes tough over the years... The one I got is still pretty flexible, but the toughness is easy to see and feel, the plastic becomes greyish and looks like rubber that has been too long in the sun...

Next step is connecting the two watches and finding the orange backing (think perhaps noble had a spare Very Happy)....

I don't think I'll be painting the buttons red and blue, but may just cut out some tiny stickers and apply them for this effect...

Here they are:

Great find, always wanted to do one and a good idea to use stickers instead of paint. I hate modifying hard to find items unless its temporary.

Thanks guys Very Happy

And yes, painting the watches would probably destroy the value of the them... And they aren't exactly cheap or easy to come by!

I got a bit further with the build today as I received the characteristic orange backing for the double watch. Thanks to noble for helping out there - much appreciated! I also got the watches glued together. I basically took an old Casio strap and cut off the straps close to the attachment pins. These two pieces were super glued together and attached to the watch - looks great and works great. Next step is getting the tiny blue and red stickers and applying them to the buttons...

EDIT: Got the straps attached the wrong way, as you can see, they are now the right way!

Hope you like it Very Happy

The test application of red and blue stickers is done, and the watch is now pretty close to done... Along the way I'll probably want to adjust the size of the stickers as they are not all the same size. But considering they are stickers and I didn't have to paint the watches, I'm quite happy with it so far Very Happy
