Bessie, The Road Paver

Post by tejanovader » Sun Apr 24, 2011 9:52 pm

Here is another modeling project of mine. A love of mine, actually. It is a scratchbuild of Bessie, the Road Paver from Pixar's CARS.

I am working on the electronics, i.e. nighlights, furnace effect and motors. It is a long and complicated labor of love. You can read about it here.

My latest breakthrough is learning enough about 555 timers to achieve a succesful test of the furnace effect.

It has been a while since I looked over at this build, but looks like it is coming along great. Fantastic work, great details, and a good imagination on found items, and made items. A very cool build.

:cylon: LMAO! Yes, Bessie from England! In doing my research on the Road Paver, I did run across this information! I catch Dr. Who from time to time, when schedule permits! :cylon:

Although it is not exactly a roving eye, I was really proud of the result with my furnace effect video. Now to just transfer it over to the model! :cylon:
