With a reputation for creating dramatic props for the film industry, approved Perspex® fabricators, Inplas Fabrications Ltd, has been commissioned to make a spaceship canopy using our Perspex® Clear cell cast acrylic (known as LuciteLux® Clear in the USA) for the new Hollywood blockbuster ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.

Inplas was commissioned to thermoform the cockpit canopy of ‘Star-Lord’s’ spaceship, a central part of the films imagery and storyline, using 10mm thick Perspex® Clear acrylic. The impressive 7.6m (25ft) x 2.7m (9ft) canopy was formed from 11 separate thermoformed panels, which were then expertly fixed into position.

The design team at Inplas worked closely with the film’s art directors and props team from initial concept through to installation and the project was finished on budget and within extremely tight deadlines; testament to their craftsmanship and expertise using Perspex®.

The film is scheduled for release on 31 July 2014 and will be available in 3D and IMAX 3D.
