Re: Anybody got Diamond Select Karr??

Mine arrived today. The scanner sound is really great. It obviously has some flaws in the paint, and so on, but for the price, it's pretty well made, and it completes the trio.

Re: KITT voice box in the pilot episode

They might have reused footage as inserts from footage they used in the short presentation they showed to universal to get the 2 hour movie approved and later on changes were made both to the car's exterior and dash shots.For instance the scanner is on the tip of the bumper when Michael sees kitt f...

Re: Great Kitt Replica on Ebay

That car used to belong (or maybe still does) to a member of another forum. His name was jgold. If I remember correctly that was his second replica, his first being a 1984 Trans am that was pretty amazing. This is a 1988 GTA, that's been converted to a replica, and at one point had a complete dash, ...

Re: anyone interested in a build of the FLAG semi?

In reality, some trailer walls are very flimsy, not much support at all. I've been in dozens of them and it always surprises me, especially the roof, some of those darn things are almost see through.

Re: Hot Wheels 1/18 Elite Karr/Super Elite Kitt

The 1:43 KARR Elite are all over ebay as of a few weeks ago. They range from $48-$54. I'm happy they applied the silver paint over the fenders, as well as the yellow scanner and correct plate.

Re: Where is the surveillance mode indicator located?

Advance designs doesn't sell his electrical components separately, so you're going to have to come up with another plan for that. Just curious, why do you need to switch between PANP? Those LEDs serve no purpose on the dash, they're just there for show. I would recommend just getting the entire set ...

No, they can't be. As far as I know, the only manufacturer of dash electronics where the power button is functional/pressable is Advance Designs.

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

I was never totally thrilled with the Joyride car. I mean it was nice for the time, and the KITT and KARR have been sitting on my shelf for years, but after receiving the Elite, I have to say the detail and body lines are impressive. The tires don't bother me at all, and they actually look realistic...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

My 1:18 Elite arrived today, I love it. Only thing I'm not thrilled with is the ejector seat......a little too sensitive for my liking. A very well done model.

Hopefully my 1:43 arrives soon:)

That car resides in Auburn, Indiana, I believe. If you do get a chance too see an original screen used car, take it. I was able to get close to the convertible a few weeks ago in Florida, and I was speechless.

Re: We Need Hot Toys To Make a 1/6 Kitt and Karr

I agree, everything hot toys makes is spot on. I saw the 1966 Batmobile and Tumbler at the SDCC this year, and they are massive, and so well detailed.........although not sure many would jump on it, considering what they cost.

I own a few Hot toys pieces, and they are quite amazing.

Re: What do you think this book might be?

My theory would be that is some sort of operating manual for KITT That's exactly what it is. It isn't a screen used prop. These were made by Joe Huth a few years back. He offered the season 1-2 manual, as seen in the pics above, a season 3-4 manual, a Pilot episode manual and a KARR manual. They ar...

That's something that is never really explained throughout season 3 and 4. I really loved the look of it, personally. There are a couple screen shots out there where you can see the black cap opened.

Re: My orininal K.I.T.T. is here!

That's definitely not a Louisell dash. It's either a Wyatt dash or MCK. Pod looks to be a ADIAT, and lower console looks like a Knight Designs one. Its a really nice replica......that front nose is beautiful. Congrats :D
