K-9 Build - Day 13

Going into the 2 week mark, and I feel I got quite a bit done.  Not as much as I would really like BUT enough to show progress...

So here's the latest photos:

Day 13

Added a third handle to the rear of K-9

Added a black trim to where the side screen would go, along with a little more rust

Because I still want to get into the head and play with the electronics as well as maybe one day making the sucker/scanner go in and out electronically I used velcro to attach the visor.


Now K9 is a little more mobile, with three casters attached to the base

Button Lenses ARRIVED, only three days after I ordered them... thats fantastic

I've decided that I'm going to make the control panel hinge, there will be 12 LEDs underneath which will flash in a random sequence much like some I've seen at conventions.  Ill be working on that probably over the next week or two.


  1. I like it! That rust looks so realistic that I had the urge to tackle it with some sandpaper and paint! lol. =)

  2. Thank you, its difficult to know when to stop really. But I think I've stopped before theres to much...

  3. it looks so great. I had no idea you were going this "techno".
