PKE Meter ver8

PKE Meter version 8 features a new design and a slightly down-sized body. Instead of using a 1inch PVC conduit box I decided to try a 3/4 inch box and the result is a scanner that fits the hand well and the belt even better. It features a blue LED at the end of the scanning armature and 3 bright red LEDs on the cylinder on the right. A color changing LED lights up behind the viewscreen. The lights run off of a 9 volt battery that is easily changing by unscrewing the panel on the back. The brushed aluminum knob on the front turns. Weathering has been done to make the scanner look used and abused. The decals are custom designed in Photoshop and printed on quality vinyl.

Paints used:
- Krylon Primer
- Krylon Flat Black
- Krylon Chrome Aluminum
- Tamiya Acrylic Chrome Silver

First everything was primed, then a coat of Ultra Flat Black. The end of the cylinder on the right is Chrome Aluminum. Weathering was done with Chrome Silver and then the assembly was sealed with an Acrylic Sealer. Artist's chaulk was then brushed into the corners.
