    Hello guys. Just finishing this guy up. I took some advice from some others(timshin) to put LEDs in his forearms. Well, I also added one in his chest . He will not transform. I raised his neck and put it on a ball joint. I took the cockpit from the back and added it to the chest for the transparent red glass so light will shine though.
    Repainted(base coat black, bry brushed with tin blitz and chainmail, airbrushed with a heavily reduce red/green/blue/yellow transparent mixture, then dry brushed with 2 more lighter shades of silver)
    Dremeled holes and lines in the armor and added 7 LEDs with 6v battery.

    To late to finish the battery pack and some painting and such. Will complete that in the morning and take official pictures!!!!

    Got some more pics. Decided to go a different route with the battery so gotta finish that up this weekend!!! (I tried to do a F-R pic, but I got now clue how)

    Gahhh!!!!!!!! It burns! It buuuurns!!!! Awesome work Encline! What size batteries are the 6 volters? You can find a size called A-27 or MN-27 just about anywhere, they are 12 volts and about the size of 1/3rd of a AAA battery! You can power many LEDS for days with those! Patiently waiting for paint!!!:thumbs2:

    Thanks a lot fellas.

    I also did pick up the 12v, they are for small things like car door/alarm remotes, right. I was thinking that would be the way. I was just a little nervous because I have blown an LED before with one of those things!!! Do you think it would be fine with 7 LEDs though?

    Great work. Really love the effect in the dark. Looks like a scene from the movie.

    Yeah man, I've powered single LEDs with the A/MN-27 battery. The concern isn't so much the forward voltage, but the milliamps of current that'll blow the LED. A/MN-27s generally flow safe current loads, but you could calculate the resistor value needed for the number of LEDs used. Conversly, you could run a voltage regulator (smaller than the size of a chicklet) and reduce the battery's voltage output to the LEDs!

    I'll PM ya later when I get home from work!;)
