    Nice dog bots. SQUIRREL!

    With nice weather approaching, a bot just has to get out the speeder and start cruising the electric highways. Automotive paint with chrome accents adds to the 'just off the showroom floor' look. Or is it 'alive' with those organic curves?
    Chaser lights in the base give it 'movement' and blue LEDs in the engines and in the 'levitation' unit up front provide propulsion. Thanks for looking. Let's ride!

    Thank for info on the Plastic spray paint John. I'll check it out!

    The head and feet are electric service caps.

    Thanks for the comment guys.
    Joe, total height is around 20 inches. Needed enough clearance for the bottom lights.

    Andy, I'm still noodling on the white rubber clamp solution. It's thick and baked on so maybe it can be wrapped with black, matte vinyl tape. Something to keep the current protection against the metal body.

    My IronBot seems to be a cross between Iron Man and the Iron Giant. His color scheme is right out of Stark Industries with its red metallic automotive paint. His face would be familiar to Hogarth.

    I have him on an elevated stand so the thrusters in his feet have room to breath and just enough angle to give the illusion of liftoff. White LEDs in his head and a cool blue one in his chest for the arc reactor glow. Warm flicker lights in his feet, hands and jet pack complete the propulsion package. Some detail shots to follow. Thanks for looking! -Steve

    Cheers to you Mr Hayes and all who contribute their passion to this community. I foresee a lot of photos with bots holding sparklers on July 4th!

    Yes, a somber day indeed. I grew up with early Trek episodes as well, and have been a follower all along. I've always had a thing for the behind the scenes technical imagery, but it was characters like Mr. Nimoy's portrayal that grabbed everyone.

    I've had the privilege to meet him twice. One of those meetings resulted in him autographing the SpockBot I made. As he signed it he gave me the classic line....'Fascinating!'

    Here's to Mr Nimoy.

    Steve,

    Ok, I'm insane over that glass bot. Is there a possibility you could create another one, and if so, how much would you want for one? Thanks.
