    Finally, complete...
    Realistic rust and dirt added. Painted with lacquers and detailed with enamels. Working light in the alternate mode (truck) which turns on/off via a small switch. Stickers were a super PITA, little to no reference on the graphics, hand drawn, scanned, digitized, colored, re-sized and printed on Testors water-slide decal paper, then applied.

    yep. very dirty old and rusty. muted pinks and it'll be a lot of fun. LEDs / electronics are a PITA. I wish I could get better at it. Soldering wiring, testing, it's a headache.

    Pretty damn sweet, Can't wait to see how these guys look when painted, I'm sure even with their pinkish color, that you can make them look like badass icecream warriors!

    Sweetness! Great job on the cone itself, and the LED is the cat's ass! Lighting is hard enough to do on Leaders and Voyagers, the twins are really Scouts to be fair. So hats off on pulling it off successfully!:thumbs2:

    Very cool man! I was hoping you would follow through with your plan. I remember you talking about this when the pics were first leaked. Great execution, and as always, I am looking forward to your paint work!

    lol, thanks.

    Me too. I hope to get them done tomorrow morning.

    Thanks

    I love to sleep. Shit, my employee likes to start work at 8am. Which I think might have to change starting next week.

    nice. maybe once I make mine, I'll send him the files. (see bottom of this reply too)

    thanks. it was a headache, but feel like I climbed mount everest.

    So, anyone know of images of the graphics (movie accurate)
    only from memory, I remember there's a sticker that says "suck my popsicle" and "(deception symbol) suck" I wish I had physical images of the truck.

    soldering is easy (not to make it sound like a piece of cake) but for me i use to do mods on consoles. So solder points are really tiny and small....so yeah i recommend in the future to use a variable temperature soldering iron, with multiple tips...and use flux its your bestfriend...

    and if this is knowledge you already have, then disregard this....
