    Ive started on modding my MP prime gun by adding a switch and a flashing LED. Im not sure whether this belongs in Heavy/Scratch or not, my thinking is that is is about as significant a mod you can do to the gun, hence putting it in this section...

    I started this ages ago, but wasnt confident with the micro surgery on the circuit board. Since I did Shockwave, I have more confidence now...

    I got to tray and soldar 2 wires to the gold round circle on the left, then the 2 silve solder spots adding a wire to each one. Then attatch a gree LED to the wire and rung the wires to the end of barrel of optimus' gun.

    If you look carefully you can see that I had to cut a tiny bit away to fit the Lighting/battery bits in.

    Also had to cut the screw fixing out which means i have to come up with another screw solution. If I just glue it togther without making access to the batteries, then the batteries will eventually die and then the gun would become ordinary again...

    [​IMG]
    Snug fit, just the wires and then a bit of Tamiya putty to hold the lighting/battery unit in place. I will post some more pics later when Ive done that and then show it working (if I can put a vid on here. Anyone know how to do that?).

    I need to add the micro switch to it somwhere. Not sure where it will go yet.

    I wish I had an MP-10, I love the mode you did too. First time I saw it today though.

    Thanks

    I kept the LED green because the lense in the Gun was green...
