Fallout First Aid Box

This 3-D printed recreation of the first aid box from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas comes to us from propmaker Brian Johnson. 

The original in-game model was based on a German mine box from WWII.  To no one's surprise, militaria collectors are loathe to sell the few surviving examples for prop use.  The situation is similar to the one involving Star Wars fans who want to turn classic Graflex flashguns into accurate replicas of the lightsabers from the original trilogy.  Many a sale has been canceled when collectors of vintage photographic equipment discover the buyer intends to make a movie prop.

I sometimes wonder: Do you suppose the guy who invented the "Graflex flashgun" (a guy named Graflex perhaps?) had the SLIGHEST IDEA just how PROFOUND AN IMPACT he would have on GLOBAL CULTURE and MODERN MYTHOLOGY with his invention...? And it wasn't even for what he originally DESIGNED it for!
