Morning all.

My next job was to make & affix the faceplate.
Originally I was going to make it light up, but it was too faffy & I didn't like the look of the result, so in the end I didn't bother.

I just used red acetate & hardboard strips which I painted red.
Then I painted the sucker red & put the whole thing together:

It actually looks nice & shiny, especially when the light falls on it, so I'm pretty happy with the result.

Thanks for looking in.

Regards,

Russell

Morning all.


Home stretch now. ;D

For a final touch I bought a dog tag & chain.
The actual prop had a blank tag, but I think most builders stick a "K-9" on their tag, so that's what I did with mine...

Happy days.  ;D

Hope you are all well.
