Hey Radicons, here is my question of the day. i went to Dollar tree and got a ton of those light up tops F_R and Big Hank were talking about. they have an on/off switch and red LED... (cant seem to find cheap blue LED toys though. guess ill just order those!(great suggestion BTW!!!) i also found some $1 light up robots that have everything including the wires FYI. My question is, does it matter the size of the wire you use to solder to the LEDS/power supply? i went to radio shack and the smallest hook up wire they had was 22-gauge. the one in that light up robot was probably around 30-gauge. very very small. Im assuming it doesn't matter as long as it holds a current. i believe that's all! i think i have everything to continue my first custom. It's Ravage (how original!) I've taken all the tutorials Ive learned over the past 6 months and decided to try them all on this one figure just to get the hang of it. i redid his head, i added a neck joint, i re-cut and added a bendable tail, i trimmed the back legs to make them more bendable at the knees and am now adding an LED light and THEN custom painting him. the best of all the tutorials in one figure! so far so good. everything I've learned is working almost perfectly. i was very overwhelmed before starting this but it's eased a bit. thank you all for your help in answering my trillion questions!
