The Jail is complete

So we spent the day working on the jail. It’s mostly complete, we just have to finish a few more U Channels in order to solidify the structure.

It’s BIG… which is awesome, it’s solid, someone could ram it and it would take it. The best part, is it took us about 10 minutes to assemble it.

I had to go get more PVC pipes for the front, as well as some hinges for the door.

Nicest part, we had materials left over to start the Tattooine wall… 2 of the 7 wall pieces are done.

Also to note, Hank started painting the back of one of the lockers and Matt started sketching the last one. We’re looking good

An other day and more building 🙂
Today we had quite the turnout.

Everyone was hard at work, we had some people covering the frames with MDF.

Some people were sanding down the PVC pipes that we’re using for the prison bars, in order to get paint to stick to them.

Others were working on the channels in order to have the wall sections stay put

Once assembled, the prison walls are quite solid (and heavy)

Detention Block 613 Part 2

Well today we started to build. I have to say, the addition of Dave MacDonald was so appreciated. He’s quite handy and pointed us in the right direction.

We basically built frames, just like for house walls using 2X4 wood and then cover it with thin MDF. Here you can See Luc and John drilling away.

By the end of the day, we had a few frames done. This brings a whole new meaning to a wretched hive of scum and villainy

Detention Block 613 Part 1

So for Ottawa Comic Con this year, we wanted to go over the top… more so than last year.

At our Christmas party, Andy mentioned how the Mando Mercs do a Jail and Bail event at cons. So we ran with it.

Tonight, we ended up going to get the materials.

Since it was raining and snowing, we had to cover it all up before bringing it to the hall.
