The interior is red and I'm giving the outside of it some Blue LED's for that Tau Energy look!

whoa, that is some seriously cool lighting you have going on, paint it up and share the pics. Maybe a tutorial on the lighting?

Pimp My Tank ITT

I was gonna do that the first time I saw the Devilfish. You beat me to it. ;)
Tell us how you did it, though, that we may spread the spectacle across the globe.

Thanks, I appreciate the replies, yeah its not that hard to do.. I have written and took pictures of every step. A lot of my friends have done this and better even lighted up the optics and the engines..

This was simply extra pieces leftover from my SkyRay/Pirahna Conversions which I have just posted in another thread here.

The Tutorial is being made at the newest version of my website (10.0)which is currently under heavy constuction, so please read the tutorial but don't go poking your nose around just yet. You won't find much...

Dead sexy and DAMN realistic with the choice of lighting colors.(If I'm not mistaken, most APCs have red or green interior lights to limit damage to one's night vision)

Tonka, me too bud, but its great to see you here!!! :D

and I did notice the devilfish you made, absolutely stunning!!

I hope you don't mind but I am casting and lighting the cockpit screen and the running lights on the front wings a la You TTD! ;)

cant decide on what color lights for the front though, blinking yellow/green?

p.s. my next project is to light a markerlight drone!! After I finish my Stealths though... :smile:

No worries Hobbes, especially since I stole it from Starship Modeller :roll:

The real challenge (as I'm sure you're finding out) is fitting all the goodies in the pilot compartment.

I know the one you're talking about, winter scene!~ :D

Funny how I used to sware by bulbs and now I'm using LEDs too.. anyways.. everything fits farily well since there are no breadboards to squeeze in there, hell if I can fit it into a base it'll fit into a cockpit!

I heard the visor can be made out of a lego one, is that what you did? cause that might be easier than making a modl and pouring resin if it fits right that is.. sadly I don't have any more of those visors... :/

Yes, I made the "windscreen" from a filed down Lego spaceman visor. Worked quite well and they come in a variety of colors.
