Deca Meter ver2

This is the second version of the Deca Meter, my custom desgined mini version of the Giga Meter from Ghostbusters 2. This one keeps the overall build of the first version but with some new tweaks and improvements. It features blue LEDs in the scanning antennas and a color-changing LED behind the main viewscreen that are controlled by the red switch on the body. The clear dome on the bottom lights and spins when the trigger on the handle is pressed. Seperating the function of the dome from the other lights means you can turn on the main lights, which drain very little power, and only "fire" the dome when needed which takes a little more power and will drain the batteries slightly faster. All of the electronics run off of 3 AAA batteries that come installed and are accessed by unscrewing the casing on the bottom. The custom decals were designed in Photoshop and printed on vinyl.

Paints used:

- Krylon Fusion Primer
- Krylon Fusion Satin Black
- Tamiya Acrylic Flat Black
- Tamiya Acrylic Chrome Silver
- Tamiya Acrylic Flat Aluminum
- Spaz Stix Mirror Chrome

First everything was primed and then a basecoat of Satin Black. Flat Black was then airbrushed on and weathering was done with heavy drybrushing of Chrome Silver and then Flat Aluminum for the edges. The scanning antennas were painted with Mirror Chrome and the entire assembly was sealed with an Acrylic Sealer.
