Re: diamond select prototype vs production model

On the real KITT, the hood goes right down to the scanner. There is no space from where the hood ends and the scanner begins. Also, not loving the scoop looking like a separate piece than the hood itself. The nose looks more like the KR2000 movie red KITT. That being said, I do like the electronics ...

Re: Update on 1:15 KITTs from Diamond Select Toys

It's hard to make out the clarity on the dash from the video but the fact that it lights up, flashes and KITT's voice modulator blinks in time with the sound clips is awesome in its own right. I'd say to anyone who might be quick to criticize the authentic quality of this (or other Knight Rider toy...

Re: My 3d KITT done in Maya!

You are welcome for the pictures. If there is anything else you need, just let me know. By the dash and lower console in your KITT, I assume you are modeling a Season 1 KITT. If that is true, then there should be 3 fog lights on each side, with 2 horizontal vents in front of them. Here is a screen c...

Re: Questions about the series

1 - Various ways were used to accomplish KITT driving himself. Early on, they had someone behind the driver's seat and a netting was used between the headrest area and back of the PMD seat so he could see where he was going. He also wore a suit that looked like the seat upholstery. If you look close...

Terrific job. I subscribed to your YouTube channel so I can keep up with you. As for the animations, someone was selling a disk of them, either on The Foundation site or the Knight Rider Registries. I found this video on YouTube, if you can copy it off there. The first images are static, but toward ...

The voicebox group sold by Jupiter, which is where I got mine, is $30. That includes the voicebox face board (display board), the voicebox circuit board, and the 4 step countdown circuit board.

Re: Nose Question...

Ok. Here's the scoop. KITT NEVER had ground effects, except on the rear wheels, right in front of the wheel wells. They didn't think ground effects would survive the stunts, so they kept them off. I don't know of anyone who makes noses that accommodate flares and ground effects, except the guy I got...

It would be nice, but don't know if they would think it profitable. I put the DVDs on my player that has upscan and is connected to my Hi-Def LED 50" TV and it looks amazing without BluRay technology. Things I've never noticed stand out.

The great thing about this hobby is you can do whatever you like. The car is a mod, and if you're not going for a screen accurate Hero car, the sky is the limit. If you like the ground effects on, and are handy enough to make a KR nose blend into it, that's a wonderful thing. The idea is for YOU to ...

The voicebox I have on YouTube is not the one I used the Jupiter board for.

I bypassed the transistors out of the circuit and wired directly to the LEDs...
