Greetings, 2001 fans. Here's my project (and a learning experience with blue foam). The Moon trench in which the Monolith was discovered is visited by Heywood and others. One of the actor, in the scene, was holding a very mysterious camera...well, after some research (thank you Internet), I discovered that it's a real camera housing (for a Hasselblad 500C) made in Belgium and called "Hugyfot" (name of the manufacturer).

Here's my prop...not perfect but close enough.

Very nice, joberg!

These housings are as rare as hens teeth, as are any referrence materials.
I like that little window on the top front with the gauge inside, is that an addition of yours or was it on the original?
