Nice; very unique

What did you use to colour the 'containers' red and blue?

Where did the rotating mechanism come from?


Does anyone know of a source for the original lights used on the March Hare and Big Bopper?

Thanks Daz

I got the two cheapest lights i could find off Ebay Oz as i only needed the guts. $20 each including shipping.
The paint i used for the lights is a Japanese brand called Mr Hobby and the name of the paint was Mr Color
clear red and blue. You could also use Tamiya brand clear colours.

The speaker/siren was also from ebay, what it lacks in accuracy it makes up for in
price and value $23 including shipping

Im doing a Big Bopper version as well and have found some very accurate, cheap versions of the blues on ebay as well, only
the bases are different but can be modified. Not sure of the make of the originals.
