    This is a recently finished commission (for a TFW board member) for Universe/Classic Inferno. Inside his chest is the electronics/LED for his light bar (read headache to build so that they blink independently)

    He was painted with lacquers (HOK:KK) and Testors enamels (MM) Ladder courtesy of tfctoys (gear of war set)

    I like that the matte coating you used brings out the red plastic hue even more. But I totally understand how it can be a pain having to sod out the right sequence for the flashing LEDs. I'm curious, when you design lights into your projects, do you have to cut out a hole for a toggle switch? I always wonder that about LED projects.

    Nice! He looks better without the brown thighs. I never could understand why they did that. Nice led's too. I need to get off my arse and learn how to do that.

    thanks guys.

    The electronics were a headache. Like said in the original post, I had to set it up so that they DON'T blink in unison. The electronics are basically a power source to a switch then split to each LED. One of the LED wires has a resistor in it, causing that LED to delay enough so they blink independently. I removed the light bars up top, drilled small holes for the LEDs to peak out of. I also cleared out the insides of the cab so that the wires and junk can fit in.

    Looks incredible! I was sad to see the normal one didn't include a ladder... this is how he should look, IMO. :)
