MG 1/100 Gundam LED Customization Tip (機動戦士 ガンダム ガンプラ)

Something to share with you. Cooked this up way back in 1995! Anyone can do this, it’s dead simple… Always a crowd pleaser! Want to modify your robots to have light up eyes? Recipe: 2 x LEDs “any” 3v power source “a” length of wire scrap of silvery paper (not aluminium foil. Be careful of short circuits which may cause a fire and burn down your home. That would be bad.) Tools: Hobby knife Soldering Iron Method: Use a hobby knife to scoop out your Gundam’s brains from his skull-cap then fill the empty space with the wired up LEDs. I find that using a separate LED for each eye gave best results. Total cost? ITS JUST 2 LEDs!!! couldn’t be more than 0.5 USD in components… max! Glue the 2 halves of the helmet together at through back for added robustness. The model in this video is a 1/100 MG Gundam RX78-2 (I will review him later)
