So the flux-cap ornament came today, it is the PERFECT size, its actually even smaller in width than in my mock up picture above . I don't think Im going to trim it to fit under the ramp perfectly but the left side doesn't have any wiring on it and you'd only need to re-run about 5 traces on the right if you wanted to cut it narrower than the ramp (and even narrower than the sticker, you seriously could make this circuit board invisible with 1/2 hour of trimming&soldering). The lights blink quickly in an inward moving pattern and it looks freaking sweet. I'll put pictures up in the next few days.
It will fit as-is if I take the third bumper cap out, but I kind of want to find lower profile (and slightly brighter) LED's to replace the ones that came stock on the board, I'm gonna have to do some reading first though because I honestly don't know the science behind LED bulbs.
the train track I bought was too narrow for the launch channel but it actually fits perfectly under the ball-lock hobby rail, I think it looks pretty damn cool there too if I do say so myself. Again, pics to come I gotta get a better camera than my junky cell phone one.
I watched BTTF III today for some mod-inspiration and I think I'm going to try to find a ~3" colt peacemaker to put on the plastic above the "mcfly" targets. If I thought I could find a mini Frisbee stamped pie pan I'd put that there too but it seems like a bit of a stretch... maybe its time to buy a 3d printer.
I almost forgot how good these movies are, I think III takes heat for being the worst of the trilogy but watching it today its a really good movie.
GREAT SCOTT! > http://shop.hallmark.com/products/flying-time-machine-1995QXI2746.html
