Major Mega Ditto's on that one! I wonder if he'd do contract work on some of the many KITT models I have?

As a modeler myself, I am astounded to see a great job on KITT. I haven't seen anyone put optics on theirs until now. WOW! I just got the new AMT release, and will at least get the scanner lit on mine. [img]images/smiles/icon_cool.gif[/img]

As i have mentioned on this site before it is very possible to do,it's not
easy but doable.Thanks to this site i had someone from this site (i guess
[img]images/smiles/icon_confused.gif[/img] )E-mail me and made me an offer that i could not refuse to buy my
kitt.Well now i have a new one in the works and some extra (little)cash.Just in
case No this one is not for sale as i will not do any more.I could try and
borrow a camera and take some pics of what i have started to do.

That's one great looking model! I have a model of the USS Enterprise, lit with fiber optic cables, that's half finished, has been for some time. I'm afraid to continue since the easy parts are done and I'm scared to death of damaging the thing! Some day... [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

I derived this guys E Mail address and E Mailed him with some questions as how he made it, etc... here is part of the reply that he sent me... including his E Mail address so you can also tell him what a great job he did. I even liked the little movie clip that he did of the car... here is the E Mail...

He gives great advice... I sent another E Mail asking if he intended on doing one of the Knight Rider 2000 car. There hasn't been a reply as of yet to that question.

I failed to inquire if he will try to take a K.I.T.T. model and make a K.A.R.R. out of it.


Anyways.. have a good un' [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
