I didn't document every step, as TC produced a nice video and guide on how to assemble the giga meter. For the most part, I have just followed the guides and things haven't been too difficult (save a few snags I'll be pointing out later).
There aren't a lot of good quality reference photos available that I could find, so it seems there are still a few unknown details about this prop.
This rotating light dome is an important piece. My first question was, what color is this supposed to be?
I have seen some builds with the light dome gray, and although I couldn't find information to say otherwise, I decided to go with gray. Whatever the case, I think it would add some flavor to the prop so it's not completely black.
Painting the main parts:
I'm just using Rustoleum Flat Black, and adding a clear coat to lock in the color. That quick-drying paint seems to work best in my dusty, dry environment. The light dome is a gloss gray.
