    interesting idea, when you said one part of the gate, i thought you mean one symbol section. this should be an interesting mod :)

    Hmm... How bout' making a base for the portal (something like this http://www.vargr.com/pages/renders/images/StarGate.jpg), and stuff the hardware down there, then you can make like a 1:10 scale of the whole portal on top. Fill it with some LED's or CCFL's and you be on and poppin':)

    A full sized Stargate would be approx 20ft (6m+) diameter.

    We had a half-scale one at some Stargate conventions I worked at a few years ago.

    crappy pic here

    a full size stargate would be 4.52m the outside diameter
    and 3.5m from the inside dimentsion
    the gate itself shoud be 0.5m thick

    http://www.estonia.ca/~v2hja/how_this_info_was_obtained.jpg
    and she is about 1.76m tall ....... and she ise quite next to the gate ^^

    now back to the drawingboard :D
    calculating materials needed next

    http://www.estonia.ca/~v2hja/tray_2.jpg
    next step would be mdf plate for this mobo tray

    btw Goth kle jah kunagi peab ju kah ise selle lolluse ära tegema



    EDIT:

    frame vs. mobo tray

    Question: Is the outer plating going to be curved, like a 'pie-slice' outta the gate? I'm only asking cuz the frame looks completely straight.

    Nice idea you got there.
    But one advice: No links, post the pics. It might piss off a mod. :)
