Green Cross Code Droid Project. Dave Prowse
After attending a South West Sci-fi convention Podpadstudios received a great commission. Dave Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader in Starwars and the 1980's Green Cross Code man asked the studios if we could help him out with a project.
'Droid', the little green robot that had been used in the 1982 TV commercial 'Always use the Green Cross Code' was in need of a 21st Century refurbishment. It was a great honour to be asked to complete this rebuild of the iconic 80's screen robot which was brought up to date ready for Mr Prowse. Rebuilding the 30 year old robot was a considerable challenge as it was very important that the original look was retained, and that it was reliable. The great man, David Prowse is no longer with us, but we still have great memories of the time we worked together, R.I.P : you were our Vader, always in our hearts.
Warminster Activity Airsoft and Paintball Centre. The StarGate Portal Project
Full size Stargate prop was designed and created for the Paintball and Airsoft Centre at Warminster placed in the centre of the 50 Acre site.
"I was chatting to my marshals and they told me Mark builds film quality props, so I had to have a chat and find out more. As we chatted the enthusiasm and knowledge became apparent straight away.I found out he was a sci-fi buff as well, as we chatted about projects past and present the Stargate came into the conversation and I wanted one there and then. 1 week later Mark came back to me with detailed drawings and ideas and various price options. I chose the one for me and with in 2 weeks I had a 3 meter Stargate that looks amazing and is a center piece to my growing Airsoft site: it is out of this world. I have commissioned him to build a DHD (DIAL HOME DEVICE) to complete the the Stargate experience and I can't wait to get it. I will have more props from mark in the future as they are an asset to the business."

Brian Wheeler: StarWars
We see Brian at many events we attend and he is such a great guy, always offering positive feedback on our creations.
"These are the best droids I have seen and would quite happily fit in any film I have been in and in the near future! The steam R2 D2 is the most creative one and brings a smile to my face as soon as I see him, which by the way, I never notice the operators". Brian Wheeler (Ewok & Jawa on ROTJ)

Offered some great comments about our SteamPunk Droids at this years Corsham Sci-fi event.
"The Steampunk droid really made my day" Danny John Jules
