Comments flying around the computer. Hope it doesn't go flying off the table, but then America's Home Video winners do pretty good sometimes. Awesome build. Now lets see the detailing out with the paint work. Use number 4 numbering man. I have that Land Ram sign number. :cylongold:

Looks like the Snowram in this early configuration.

Nice work, Zeta!

Cool project GLZ! :salute:

I reckon a row of rectangular white LEDs along the front would set it off nicely. You could run them independently from a 9V battery hidden inside. They won't draw much current. Keep us posted on this!

Progress on the ram will slow now, I have other projects needing my attention. The last detail I will add is the white covers for the LEDS, then it will sit until I get caught up on other projects. Then I will work on more detail. Coming soon will be a couple vids on the ram moving and a screen cap of the cam working.

Until then here are a few more pics...
