hi
It's quite hard, i've had a lot of people try and recreate it for me over the years.
The best result in the end was a screen capture of the real gate in the show, then masked around to fit my own gate. ( see stargate openday on here to see results )

I wish I could help more but everyone struggled with it, even pro's, so maybe it's best to grab from the show.

if you need anymore stargate help just ask ( i'm currently making a 6th / 7 episode back to back of "Call it a Stargate"
