Asok/Animefan/Fettwerks RF Light Kits Now Available
These light kits are designed to fit the Asok and Animefan RF toppers. They run on a 3v coin cell battery (either the 2025 or the 2032). They are self contained and do not need a hollow stalk. There are 2 red LEDs that alternatively flash on the back of the board behind the tilt switch.
In the second pic, the area where the pen is shows where the Rf topper will need a bit of sanding to get the kit to fit properly, this is due to the type of tilt switch used and the excess resin in the toppers, as well as a little sanding around the inside of the red LED holes.
The vids below show the two versions I will be building; one with a white LED and one with a green LED. While not movie accurate, I like the green one and it is also the one I will have in my own FP lid. The clear piece in the vids sits inside the topper with nothing added to help hold it in, but a small magnet glued to the topper and a small piece of metal like a washer glued to the clear Perspex piece should be enough to hold it in place.
Lou (Darth Voorhees) now has a helmet kit with an RF topper that will fit the self contained light kit. So now it is the Asok/Animefan/Fettwerks Self contained Rf light kit.
UPDATE FOR ANIMEFAN HELMET BUYERS
Animefan has made some changes to his topper and stalk. His kit now includes a stalk that has a hollow tube for wires as well as a threaded mounting post. With these new parts on the stalk, the light kit will not fit inside the topper due to new stalk.
The light kit still fits his RF topper, but due to the changes to the stalk, some extra work will be needed for it to fit. The tube and threaded post will need to be removed for the kit to fit, along with the sanding referred to in the pics below.
If any animefan buyers have any questions feel free to send me a PM and I will try to help as much as I can.
Check out post #226 for pics and a video of the kit (with a few modifications) installed in the new Animefan RF topper.
If there is interest in this new modified kit, I can make this a permanent item and ad it to the sellbuddy ad.
THESE CHANGES DO NOT EFFECT KITS INCLUDED WITH THE ASOK HELMET KITS.
Green kits are also available, but they will not be sold through sellbuddy. If one of those is desired, please send me a PM and I will let you know the timeframe of availability, and the price is the same as the white kit.
Once the kit is shipped I will send you a PM with the tracking info, and I will be using the US Postal Service for shipping.
I just found out from WebChief on the bounty hunter's guild (he is the detachment leader) that the new Boba Fett ESB CRL lists the perspex light as white, and the ROTJ is white as well for level 2/3 approval. This information as of right now is correct, but I will keep an eye on the CRLs for any changes.
I will offer these with a green Perspex LED, but only by request.
I also made a slight change in the board, the ones that I will be offering from now on are a little smaller and the Perspex led is more in the center of the Perspex piece.
The tilt switch on the kit is very sensitive, so when installing the kit make sure that the topper has been sanded out like in the picture below on the right, otherwise the tilt switch leads could be bent, which would cause it to not work correctly.
