I love this thread. So neat to see this technique in DIY fashion. May I ask what material you used for diffusion? I'd also be interested in how you transported the rig while your studio floor was drying.

Also im teaming up with a local fab shop in town to put together a few sizes of lightbanks i am considering selling once i get all the numbers together. lightbanks would be metal tube design for the frame come with the diffusion material and have wither an option of the black outside silver inside outer cover or just bare frame allowing the user to go to there local hardware store and buy 1/2" insulation boards that have the silver on on side to save costs versus the cloth version... im pricing out a 10x20 and 12x24 versions.... im not sure on price yet but def will be waaaaayyyyyy less then Chimera if i had to guess right now it would be 1/5 to 1/3 the cost of theres... thought???

Except for the hood & side highlight on the black '59, these are looking pretty good! Keep it up!

YES. I would be very interested, although I'm sure shipping would be a bear.

I'll keep u posted and shipping wouldn't be to bad at all regular ground would cover shipping depending on the size of the box weight would be be in the 80 to 200lbs off my estimates right now.. I will be putting together a prototype in the next couple weeks
