    Just finished up wiring the blue LED lights for the eyes and the parts that hold them. I am hoping to finish the head in the next day or so. Moving slowly as I messed it up the first time! Lookin' good thus far!

    I just downloaded everything...again...today. I'm thinking of doing this one and following Claudio's directions to the letter, just to see it come together the way he made it. Show some Pics CK!

    BTW Claudio, I have to commend you and all that worked with you on this yet again. I was looking through the various pages and stages today and you've done a fantastic job!:thumb:

    You're quite welcome, but again, I have to thank you!:thumb: I love seeing this come together and love your work. There's just so much to say about people that would take their time to GIVE something to the modeling community and not be focused on taking. Not only that, but the degree of professionalism put into these models that are available for free.... is astounding! I only hope to get to the point to be able to make them myself some day.:mrgreen:

    Hey guys, I will get a pic of the head up this evening after work. I didn't do any in-progress pics, but I have to say, the parts fit real tight. I went through a couple different types of wire, finally settling on black 20 gauge doorbell wire as it is flexible enough to run through the neck area. The high intensity LED's were about 4.50 each and the switch was 1.50, both at Radioshack and the CR2025 3V battery was 4.99. I recommend the high intensity LED's as they are 3.7 V and the batteries are only 3 V. This way, when you hook up all the lights, the LED's will shine like a regular LED as the draw increases the more LED's you attach to the line (of course you could always use more batteries).

    Alright, here we go. I just hope the build looks as good as the master's!! My cam doesn't focus real well on the close-ups on account it's been dropped a few times by the kids, lol. Let me know what you think!
