    Hey all :) 

    I haven't posted anything in a while so I figured I would post my latest creation of a Nintendo Entertainment System with a G1 Blaster and Eject theme..

    Everything was painted with Krylon Fusion paints and Valspar Satin Clear Coats.

    First thing I did was take the system and controller apart and washed everything and took a tooth brush to all the nook and crannys lol. I let everything sit over night and dry good and started painting it up the following day. Everything got multiple coats of paint, I love this fusion paint it works awesome with this stuff..

    So the console is Blaster themed of course and the controller I have I painted blue to match Eject. I think went to work in Photoshop and made some decals for that extra added detail.. I took some of Blasters decals and one of his molded details and recreated them as decals to fit the shape of the console box..

    Eject also got some detailing done, he has his cassette face on the front side of the controller and on the back side are panel lines to make it look like he can transform. The back side of the controller is made up of layers of decals some clear and some printed on solid white decal paper.. Once all the decals were dry then gave everything some clear coats of a satin finish so the decals have some protection.. Also before I applied all the decals they got a few coats of a UV protection spray to prevent fading..

    That's about it , really not that much to explain .. Have a look at the pics and see what you think.. This is also up for sale in my sale thread..

    Sneak Peak :
    Here is a Digi Bash of my next project .. Super Nintendo Soundwave with Laserbeak and Rumble Controllers. Im also planning on adding 6 or 8 LEDs to the base of the console so it will glow blue and then add 2 or 4 LEDs to where the game plugs into the console so that it will glow Yellow or Blue around the game, I haven't decided what color yet.. The LEDs will be wired to the mother board so they come one when you power up..

    This is 100 and 10 % AWESOME! I recently found my Atari 2600 and got it up and running, but I don't think it would work as with the older aesthetic of the fake wood front panel.

    The controller is an excellent addition.

    Thanks :) 
    Glad you guys like it.. Im planning another one for a Super Nintendo as SoundBlaster and ill be giving it some LED mods if I can figure out the whole LED thing lol. Im going to do the controller like Rat Bat. I just need to see if my SNES works before I go and do all that work to it lol..


    For Atari you could do a Teletran One deco on it. I think that would look really cool. I thought about doing one myself if I can find a shell or working one at a yard sale or cheap on ebay ..
