    Tonight I made a cheap EOT flasher for an IHC passenger car. It looks great and runs great. Here are the materials you need.

    1.Flashing LED qty 1
    2."AA" battery holders qty 2

    I had to use my Dremel to cut alittle of the plastic that makes the windows. However, you can't see it. The reason I used "AA" batteries was because they had a little more current and they last longer compared to a watch battery. Plus the add the extra weight to the car. The only problem will be adding the seats to it.

    It looks great when you run it in the dark.......reminds me my childhood days!

    EOT

    FYI an EOT is also known as FRED (flashing rear end device).
    Seriously.
    BTW, I've always thought that, from a modelling
    standpoint, FRED is a poor replacement for a real crummy.
