    Question, Bazooka:

    Parts F1/F2 and G1/G2... where the devil do these go? :-? :-? :-?

    Admittedly, I'm nowhere's near done yet, but I can't seem to figure out where/what these attach to. Especially tabs C and A...

    Maybe it will become clear as I get further along, but thought I'd ask now. :-D

    little help

    What I did to get the parts to stick together was peel the mirror off the parts that were to be glued together then the white paper glue worked good and no gluing myself to the model.:grin:
    And the f2 & G2 rap to the bottom of the model.

    I thought someone had mentioned Micheals before. Sorry Ekuth but AHE gets the prize for discovering the card :grin:

    And consider my butt kicked - It's my primary objective ATM - but man is it fiddly job. One day I want to be so good with the 3D that I never have to eyeball engineer ever again :(

    + Red is correct. Those parts form the bottom rim of the helmet. That's why I like these forums - everyone ready to lend a hand :)

    Michaels Mirror Card

    Hi all,
    I'm having trouble locating mirror card from Michaels. I went to thier web site and searched for "mirror card", but no matches were found. Is there an SKU number for this product? Thanks!

    Best Regards,

    Mirror Card

    Hobby Lobby is where I picked up my mirror card it was a 19.5" X 26" and cost about $5 to $6 a sheet if I remember.
    Well Im getting a little closer to welding this thing together. then I will have to grind the welds, then sand smooth and polish to a shine.
    Then find some one to tell me how to make the diod eye to complete it. :twisted:
    So if there is electrician that can tell me what part and where to buy,and how to put it together please pm me.:yep:

    Nice one B-Manic.

    Something like those flashing bracelets would be ideal if they could be hacked easily.

    As for the Jack-O-Lantern it seems a little advanced for me - maybe if someone here was to do a complete walkthrough for chumps like me with extra tips on which way round to hold the soldering iron etc.

    Yes, the Michael's web site is definitely not all inclusive. They may not be the best source of hobby products, but if you have one close, you definitely have to go roam the aisles in person. I find something new every time I go in there...

    Thanks all!

    I appreciate the information on the mirror card at Michaels. I go there every once in a while but have not thought to look for it there. I just have to brave the New Jersey traffic now!

    Best to all,

    Provided I can actually get the circuit to work, I'll post a "how-to" and make it really simple.

    Which it definately is NOT. I start to see why people charge alot to make these. :cry:
