I debated about where to put this, but decided that since the project is intended to go in Bazookajo's Cylon Helmet, it rightfully belongs here. I'm stretching a point, I know... :mrgreen: For those unfamiliar with what I'll be covering, long ago, when Bazookajo was first beta testing his Cylon helm, not being satisfied with just having the helm, I decided it absolutely HAD to have the sweeping red eye. I mean, that's what makes a Cylon a Cylon, right? However, the only commercially available ones (two- count them) were more than $200.00. Definately out of my budget, and not good enough by half. Not to mention, they were designed for the resin helmet kits out there, and not for wearing (without serious modification). So, while searching the hinterlands of the Internet for a solution to this thorny eye problem, I found the following guide: Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories - Make A Cylon Jack-O-Lantern Copy that link down, bookmark it, whatever, because we'll be using it ALOT. Obviously, I cannot claim credit for the circuit design we'll be building, and I don't plan to. I did, however, modify it slightly- and I'm making this guide to make building it at least possible for those among us who are not ultra-geek inclined (of which I am, in case you haven't picked that up by my other posts). So, parts list in hand, I headed out for a frustrating trip to my local Radio Shack; and a not so frustrating trip to my local electronics store. Time was, Radio Shack was the go-to place for projects like this. Sadly, that time has passed, and if you actually find a clerk who knows what is what in their pitfully limited selection of electronic parts- grab him/her and kiss them. No, not really, as that might get you brought up on charges. You know what I mean though. And, soldering iron in hand, I returned home and began to build the circuit, following the directions on the website. 48 hours and numerous soldering iron burns later, I finally succeeded! And to encourage you, below is a link to the end product of our labors: DropShots.com You can also see a couple of vids of the eye installed in the helm. Now if those don't motivate you, walk away NOW. sign1 Okay, all that said, let's get to it!
