“This is what makes time travel possible: the flux capacitor!”
Back To The Future Flux Capacitor Replica
Well, I finally finished building my Back To The
Future – Flux Capacitor prop replica. I put it off for some time because of so many other projects. My last project was my Lost in Space
B9 Robot and that took over 4 years to build. During that project, I learned how make silicone molds, cast plastic resin and work with many different types of materials. Those skills were put to use on this project.
While my wife won’t let me display my robot in the living room, maybe she’ll let me install the Flux Capacitor in the family vehicle.
My goal with this site is to document the process I went through to make my flux capacitor and hopefully help others along the way. Check out the build progress I went through and then go build one for yourself.
..and a Flux Capacitor in a pear tree!
The two months before Christmas were very busy. I’d been wanting to finish my first Flux Capacitor to give as a Xmas present for my nephew Ben. I can happily say that it was finished in time and was a big hit on Christmas. He was very surprised when he opened the packaged and could not believe what was inside.
There are a few tweaks I will be making on my next one (for me) but I could not be more pleased with how it turned out. Keep checking back.
