Oh horrors! What a thing to find in Mt. Victoria!

Even if it does turn out to be a coffee machine.

The original Nukie was over three metres high, the largest prop that anyone could remember being used in a BATS production. Although I saved the rest of the props, at the end of the run Nukie had to go on a skip, which I believe is how they dispose of nuclear weaponry in Russia.

This replacement is considerably smaller, but much more portable. It consists of $11 worth of wood and a cunning mechanism made from cardboard from a tea box. And a small dot of velcro.
