About the monitor animation and movie for KITT replica.

Dear Members.

Now, I am working on 1/8 scale KITT replica.

And the sccaner of the video below is not from Aoshima.

It`s our special made and we can change 5 level speeds for sccanning.

And Two dash monitors are working as you seen in the TV show.

I am looking for the video data for the monitors.

If someone knows where i can get some screen animnations like Devon`s calling, Mulfunction warning, Vital signs of michael, sccaning or analyzing the chemical components.

Please give me some advices !!

Thank you !

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 end are the animations. The guy doesn't seem interested in selling them, though.

BTW, what are you using for the tiny monitors?

Dear Chris

We are using very very tiny MP3 players and disassemble one, after that my friend made some computer program for playing the movie caputuring the scences from real KR episodes.

I don`t know the detail, but he has a special technique for this kind of things and maybe builiting this kind of electronic working scale model is his gift I think.

Thank you !

Awesome! The tiny screens especially look impressive. Your friend sounds like electronic genius, maybe he could find a way to put tiny camera lenses inside the front nose & feed that video signal to the monitors. For example taking parts from sunglass videocamera, pen "spy" camera or "808 keyring spycamera" which are cheaply available at ebay ;)

That's very clever. I have never seen an MP3 player that small. You should be very proud. Please keep us informed of your progress.

Thank you guys !!

My 1/8 KITT is just around the corner of its assembling.

Within a month, I am sure that I will have it.

As for the idea of small camera inside a nose, I think technically, my friend can do that easily.

However, this is not full scale replica.

so, the view from the nose of 1/8 KITT will not be realistic....

Thank you for your good advice KITTfan !!

My friend has already scrached built perfect shape PMD seats for the replica.

It`s incredible !!

If you want to see the pics.

I will upload some.

Thank you Chris !!

Here are some of our prototype mold of PMD seats.
We will have final finishing to make them more realistic.

PMD plates are already done but not attached yet.
