Off to get some lighting and switches. I will be using some LEDs to light up the gauges to give it the “working” look. What I did find that I had not seen before was some LED’s in a case in a strip.
For about $6 they had these in 3-4 LEDS strips and in squares with a sticky pad on the back. They come in white, blue, green and yellow and are 12 vdc… this modders dream has come true. These are great for spot lighting a case. I will use the one I got for the Pip-Boy 3000.
I will also be making some Nuka-Cola bottle caps. Lucky for me where I work we have a few bars on property and I was able to grab some quickly. And no they are not my brand… I enjoy the local beers.
and finally I was getting worried about this as it was taking some time to get to me but the Pip-Boy 300 casting that I ordered showed up… YEAH!
So after this we are on our way to some serious modding.
Here is a quick look at what I want the case to look like. The gauges are mounted with the Pip-Boy on top and a couple of bottle caps. The whole idea is to make it look like someone has come back from a journey, take the PB of and stuff from their pockets and place it on top. Kind of like what most of us do now.
