PKE Meter ver2

When I met Dan Akroyd in April of 2009 I had him sign my RGB PKE meter and I knew then that it would need to be retired and a replaced. So I went to work on a new design idea for a PKE that keeps the body simple and narrow as not to clutter my belt. The result is my version 2 PKE and it features a small scanning armature at the top that has 6 blue LEDs chasing back and forth when turned on. The screen also lights up with a LED that slowly fades to different colors and the two blue lights on the console light up. All of the knobs turn and the scanning armature has a small degree of rotation as well. The decals are all designed in Photoshop and printed on vinyl. And as you can see, my favorite color is blue.

Paints used:
- Krylon Fusion Flat Black
- Krylon Metallic Brilliant Silver
- Testors Model Master Acryl Silver
- Tamiya Acrylic Clear Blue

First a basecoat of Flat Black, then Brilliant Silver for the side knobs and the scanning armature. Clear Blue was used over the tubing on the armature and Silver was used to weather by drybrushing.
