HG Grimgerde WIP

So I’m currently at the boring, clean up part of the Space Jahannam build. Decided to switch to a different project I’ve had on my mind for a while. It was originally just to supposed to be a simple, quick build but then thought it would be a good project to test working with surface mount leds (the very tiny ones).   The Swords The swords looked a bit too small and I wanted them to look more menacing. Used […]

Space Jahannam WIP 2: More mods and details

Wired up the red LED with 24 gauge magnet copper wire, added a resistor and soldered magnets to the end of […]

Didn’t get the holes perfectly centered. 🙁   Since this is based on an old kit, its using old joints which have to modified in order to be able able to remove the seam lines. This way I can paint the […]
