    My favorite badass movie dragon of all time.
    And so, it begins......
    Drilled out the neck and head to accept wiring for eyes to be illuminated...

    It works!

    Mocked up the entire scene.....

    I got an idea for some of the "side lighting" fiber optics material from Paul at www.thefiberopticsstore.com

    There is a ring around the edge of the display base, that is a perfect fit for this 2mm solid core side light fiber. I made some small rings from plastruct tubing to run it thru and secure it. (it doesn't seem to accept glue well)
    After making some LED tubes to hold the strand and the actual LED's....

    Cool Fx!

    I cut out some "lava pools" and the crevace area in the base, and will underlight it for more of a volcanic look...

    Neck drilled and cut out, LED in place to light the eyes...

    Cool figure, should be fun to detail!

    Everything got a bath in hot soapy water last night, almost time for primer after filling a few seams..... Fun build so far!!! More to come.....

    I didn't know it was out yet till I saw this thread.
    Looks like Tower Hobbies has the best price of the 4 sites I just checked.

    Very nice work.

    That's a great price for a 1/32 scale vinyl kit. Great to see new kits out there!
