Great start!  I have my Tom Jones que'd up just in case this little bastard comes to life and attempts bodily harm to you (they are sneaky like that).   8)
That model really tied the room together.

Okay guys, just a little progress on my Mars Attacks project....I got the sewer grate drilled out and cleaned up and I got the wiring figured out for the lamp post. I then started mocking up a base for everything to sit on and to provide room for the modifications I'm planning. As I had mentioned earlier, I'm planning on trying to simulate a ghostly green light coming off a green ooze that's flowing through the sewers. (Why, you ask?.....because I can) So, to create this effect, I need to raise the kit base up a bit.

I'm not 100% sure how much I'll be installing under the base so I decided to light block the whole underside (just in case)

I did a test fit of the sidewalk flange (not sure of the correct terminology) which will definitely need a bit of cutting and sanding to make a more realistic looking fit. I will also need to light block the underside of it as the light coming from the sewer grate could cause problems if I don't.

I'll try and get some light testing done for the lamp post and sewer over the next night or two.

Thanks for looking, and comments always welcome!

Hi guys, I worked on a few lighting effects last night....first test was of the Radioactive Sewer Goo here:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aILJxpbRcw&feature=youtu.be
Stay with it...you have to watch the entire video!

Then I tried just some static green lighting....

Keep in mind that I still have some light blocking to do and I plan on building a styrene box around the LED and also creating the "goo" itself.

What do you think?
