    well... a bit late jumping into the band wagon.
    here's my take on drift.
    modded the waist to have it twisting.
    more pix at a later time.

    That is amazing. Did you put a separate light in the head or did you somehow light pipe through the neck?

    Those lights make an already great figure even better!

    I'm curious about how you did that too, looks great! :)

    lights are great blings. XD

    1 led shoot upwards within the head.
    and 4 led on his chest.
    there's a pair in the headlights in alt mode.
    but haven't shot him in alt mode yet.
    still need some touch-up.

    looks like crayon shin-chan?

    Damn, you beat me to it! As soon as I got this mold, I thought of lighting that chest section as well! Very nice work! When youve got pics of the headlights, can you explain how you wired them? I was thinking of doing the same thing, but there seems to be less room in there then I'd initially thought...

    imho, there's no point argueing who's first.
    lol but you do get to have bragging rights.
    i'm sure there are others who have done it but haven't post it.
    the headlights were done by a close friend who has chosen to remain anonymous.
    man, i've seen his works and studied 'em.
    it's just bonkers – the way he find solutions to tight spot and ingenius electrical parts put in. i can't show those pics caused those are his commissions to some other customisers.
    later i'll post rotf swerve but not so soon yet.
    his work just blew me away.

    enough of my yada-ing.
    show your custom as well.

    Who is "he"? If anyone shows a custom here in Radicons and work has been done by another, the artist needs to be credited.

    Also, I think gericault was merely saying he had an idea to do the same thing, not that he's trying to stake any kind of claim. :thumb 

    Again, this is some nice work, man; thanks for sharing :thumb

    Yep, no claiming being claimed! I don't believe in "bragging rights" as it only ever leads to arguing...
    Ask your LED friend if he'd mind sharing how he managed it; I'm sure I can do it myself, but what's interesting is to see how others come up with different methods/solutions to the same problem!

    well, he is okay to be known as Max.
    ditto... my poor choice of words :( 
    sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Live and learn, bud :)  Also, we don't get people's voice tone when we post either, which is another reason I chimed in about that :wink: 

    As for "Max", another reason I asked for the artist to be credited is that when members don't credit others for their work, the people responding [rightfully] assume that the artist who starts the thread did the work. Clarity FTW :)
