Default Full scale !!! 82 version TRON LIGHTCYCLE

You probably wouldn't believe if I just told you, but I'm attempting to build a full size lightcycle replica from the original Tron movie. I always thought this would be an amazing prop replica to build,but things always got in the way,not anymore....greetings programs!, the build up of the Tron lightcycle mockup,unless I can figure out how to make it rideable

Wait. Full-size? As in, 1:1 scale?

Also: how do you carve the foam consistently (i.e., both sides equally sculpted)?

Can't wait to see more.

Default Re: Full scale !!! 82 version TRON LIGHTCYCLE

So a bit of an update on the lightcycle project. I've been exploring different types of finishes for the exterior of the cycle. I ran across a product that absolutely astounded me, so ordered a sample shape.
It's a electroluminescent paint application that once an electrical charge is applied, lights up the whole painted area like a light bulb. This basically is the ultimate finish for the lightcycle, period. I've been talking to Ted of Spinwurkz as he's a Lumilor agent here in the southeastern area. He recently finished a black and lumilor with candy tangerine project and I screen grabbed, as best I could, a before and after pic. In the pics,you can see the results, which is what matters

This is a spectacular project!-
With the electro paint you will really be making this look like the original CGI

Thank you,
I also bought an XK Glow Blue tooth controller which allow me to change the brightness of the final Lumilor finish from dark to super bright and various other options just by phone
