He brings death to the worthless with his terrible cigarette of doom. “Look into my fag-end,” he says, and the weak and feeble die of second-hand paranoia within minutes, their lungs turned to charcoal and their brains… well, it makes no difference to the deep-fried Mars bars they were replaced with when ASH took their lives over.
Anyway. A couple of years ago I bought some stuff on eBay just after Halloween because I wanted it to make book covers and other things of nastiness and depravity. One of those things was a bag of beads shaped like skulls that were near-enough 1/24th scale. They were intended as beads for Goth decorations so they had holes drilled right through them.
So I rammed a red LED up the lower hole of one of them (fnarr) and drilled through his teeth like a more-demented-than-usual dentist and rotated the LED until I got the best light and then mixed up the Araldite and…
Ghost Rider had a fairly muscular body but a skull for a head. Since I have not found a decent 1/24th skeleton I might just go with that. The main point is that with the LED in his head, the wires can come out anywhere. Even his feet. I can now have a 1/24th scale smoker standing alone with no sign of the source of his cigarette’s light. Unlike the political bollocks of ‘lessons will be learned’ I can now state ‘lessons have been learned and acted upon’. Funny, we never seem to hear that on the news.
Now the LED is in the model head. In this case the head is pre-holed so my choice was to take ages filling and filing the top or stick a hat on it. I have hats. For other, solid, heads, drilling for the LED would be a better choice but it won’t work for lasers. LEDS have to rotated to get the best light before fixing because you’re taking light from the side. Lasers have to be straight-on.
There is a body but I might change it.
If I can’t get a bike then it has to be a truck. Or a Mk 1 Fiesta painted with Hammerite.
