I'm spending way too much time on this machine http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/my-t2-restoration-with-pictures

So, I bought a helicopter and swat van on Ebay. I added a propeller motor and lights to the helicopter simulating as much as possible the helicopter in the movie. Then I painted and added lights to the swat van also simulating the one in the movie. Here's what I ended up with.


Here is video of it in action. I added flashers in the cockpit to simulate gunfire like in the movie. Some of the lights and propeller activate when you make the helicopter ramp shot.

Ok, I'll be the first. That's cool. Nice work. The lighting is spot on.

Maybe try shooting some bb's from close range. Could be a cool effect, or it might be a bust.

Awesome ideas! Need more details on how you did the helicopter motor installation. What specific parts did you use?

What did you use for the LEDs and how did you wire it up? Is it connected in the the game lighting?

If you want to do bullet holes, do not use a drill. Or a hot needle. Thin the plastic with a dremel tool where the bullet holes will be, and use a really sharp knife with a tapered thin point to punch in and slightly twist the plastic to make realistic damage. Just my 2 cents.
