quick print just to test fit and sizing - a few small adjustments needed but getting close.

flasher coming through the vents for the moment

UFO and Bots are done and happy with the variety of places they can be mounted and angles it can be set at. The UFO bot comes with a 10 deg up and 10 deg down mount and a post led inside so glows out the front, top and tractor beam below. The UFO can also be mounted at any banking angle level, 90 degrees or even up side down. Tri-Bot comes in 3 legs swept back or standing each with 2 different height post mounts with head and legs that you can adjust to face different directions. Rocket Bot can be mounted right down on the post up to about 10mm above it's base making him look like he is landing. Still waiting on decals for Tri-Bot and Rocket Bot so not quite finished.

FINALLY finished the Foo Fighter Pro Area 51 Building. It has UV reactive green trimming details, red lighting beacon and internal lighting and then RGB light front building. The building also gives a clearer view of the flasher with the flasher relocated to the mods mount. The Area 51 Building also comes with a mount for the Keep out plastic with a ball diverter if ever the ball gets air behind there so no trapped balls. I will be upgrading the beacon to be flashing off a ramp trigger and plan to add an additional feature in front of the building.

On a more fun note, after years of wanting to do the Fire Station the 1st pass prototype (just one colour at the moment) is made with a mini ecto light bar above the spinner and might do a mini GB sign a try as well.

Still need to make a few changes and then work out a good way to repeatedly make with the various parts coloured.

Is approx 60mm wide x 100mm high x 145mm back.

Also don't worry all the windows will be opened up and replaced with backlit resin.

Unlike the Stern / Mezelmods and Wolfcub's this allows a view to the city at the back and is more in fitting with my Library and Flat Iron Mod scale.

I gotta say you make some of the best mods out there. I just installed the Flat Iron building last night and wow!!! Amazing work man. Didn’t even reference an installation video as it so well crafted and was super easy to install. Absolutely put me down for a Firehouse !! Your stuff is second to none. Cheers!!

Thanks mate, your review is very much appreciated and so happy that you like it and appreciate the design and quality.

Sorry I don't do install videos but feel the install guides are detailed and gets most people through.

Question of curiousity - was the fluro green plastic down the back of the flat iron an existing mod as stroke of luck that they work together.

Enjoy

have been wanting to do this mod for ages where a custom sign on the back ramp sync's with the lockdown button to show you the button status - yellow / green / red. I made 2 different lenses - Area 51 signage and then Bombs Ready. I know it is meant to be Tractor Beams but like the idea of bombs especially with one on the van.

Everything is home printed and no paint and the bombs ready is a 2 colour print where as the Area 51 is a decal.

A customer installed the Fire House Mod into their Premium GB. They purchased both the GB logo spinner topper and the Ecto Spinner Topper. The Art Blades and Fire House work so well together with the stream coming out of the roof top.

went and had a look at the Twippy awards categories and selection options and they listed nearly every mod under the sun but not a single one of my 10 mods that went into production this year....

#319 65 days ago

That’s crazy, but do you or the community have to advise?
I had heaps of positive reaction when installing your UFO mod into another FF the other night.
Let alone the Area 51 building

Thanks mate, much appreciated

I don't care if I did not win anything, but when nearly every other mod created this year is listed but none of mine for the year are even acknowledged - it is a bit of kick in the guts.

They wrote back but I declined to enter on principle, as it should be about being recognised (it is in their title) and not about self promoting to be added.

Just about finished another project out of necessity but will be offering to pinheads soon.

I can't justify the Marco Jack Stands as they are not cheap and a set of 2 ends up being over $400 AUD (for 2) so purchased some jacks and designed some jack stands and 3d printed them (blue parts) and modified the jacks for a total cost of $85 AUD for 2 jacks plus the printed parts and a few bolts, nuts and washers. They work around pin footies of different designs to lift the front or back of the cabinet off the ground to adjust the levelers - quickly and easily and a much cheaper price.

Recently I did my version of the pinjacks but then thought why not just one jack to lift up at the centre of the game to adjust around any type of furniture sliders / pin footies. Also no modifying of the jacks but requires a few bolts, 20 x 20mm maker aluminum profile and printed parts

this is a breeze now and so quick and portable

Bloody brilliant Jady, are you going to be selling these as complete units or what mate? I’d love to get/make a couple of these to save the back.
