    I thought I might be time to let all my Radicon brothers and sisters in on the progress of my latest project. This is by far the most abitious custom I have ever attempted. I have never done LED's before and this bot will have at least 9. I have borrowed ideas from other customizers so a shout out now to Frenzyrumble. I will post more as I go but it is pretty slow going. I hope you all enjoy.

    **UPDATE**

    The legs are pretty much done!! I added some more detail and added the side and front hip joint guards. And the torso is now about half way done. The last three pics are new.

    I think that once a member goes through all of the images, this much is evident. I think the more and more this comes together will be the more this will shine. Keep up the good work :thumb

    Youre the very first who did the led eyes realistic, most light up the entire light pipe which as a very weird look for me, also it's one of the rare led projects I REALLY like, mostly I don't like led work.

    Great work :)
