Codename: Mulder's Nipples Revealed!

Postby Tibia » Thu Aug 05, 2010 8:40 pm

The Nipples are finished!

Apparently, I live in a goddamn cave with crap for lighting. My camcorder won't work, so I've done the best I can with my camera, which is so old it takes floppies.

The finished console in the dark, showing the EL panel under the X-Files cutout.

The sound-activated LEDs. They glow a bit while playing in the dark, but they aren't all that visible, really.
Image

Here's what it actually looks like. It's a flawless matte black finish, but I had to use the flash, and it picks up every speck of dust. I have over 60 hours in just sanding and repainting, so I KNOW it's flawless.
Image

This is the matching controller. It's been painted with a matte finish, the buttons have all been repainted, and the LEDs changed to green. The right buttons are 9mm bullet shells, the exact type Mulder and Scully use. lol

I can't do video, but if you are interested, I've got links to more pics, and some worklogs.

@Chevy- :mrgreen:

@Rekarp- I scanned the logo on the manual and printed a copy so I could use carbon paper to trace it on the lid. I did a bunch of pilot holes with my drill press, then spent about seven hours sanding and filing it to the right shape.

Freaken love the 9mm bullets for buttons! Too bad the 9mm is such a wimpy round :lol:

Great work!
