ZF-1 Parts Arrive!

It's a very exciting day over here at the Munson household, as a package arrived all the way from Australia containing a number of parts to the ZF-1, one of my all time favorite props, from one of my all time favorite movies, The Fifth Element.

These parts, combined with the work I have already done on the shell, put me VERY far down the path to completion. I still have a ways to go, but even if the earth stopped spinning today, I currently have more accomplished on this piece than I have ever had before. So I'm happy.

Here's the raw parts as they came out of the box.
