    There are a bunch of Kup cigars popping up these days, so I needed to figure out a way to make mine stand out. I used a clear red rod and bent the inside end up against the eye light block. The outside of the cigar is painted with flat black then flat aluminum. The black layer adds to the light-proofing.

    Hey, thanks guys! So, did I inspire you guys to try this, or did I just beat you to it?
    Yeah, in the books it has a vent on the front, like a nicotine inhaler, which it sort of is. I thought this would be a cool take off on it being more like one of out earth cigars. Or at least like our E-Cigarettes.

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad you like it. Sorry, I've been a bit lax about replying to my threads lately. I really do appreciate the feedback.

    Very cool idea. Inspiring mate. My cigar disappeared from his head, so this is perfect to do a replacement.

    Is that like one of them "electronic" cigars they're now selling to help people quit? :D 
    I never understood why a TF would need to smoke, but that said, there's your next trick.
    Make smoke come out of the cigar! :)
