    My Police Summit SUV had a 1/16 Police Summit SUV

    Hey Guys,

    Just finished this... Hope you like it... Both, on-road trucks...



    They are almost identical as you can see... Both are brushed, Titan 775 and Titan 380...

    Thanks! My plan is to convert both of them into Police trucks... Many red/blue LEDs and a siren...

    They idea for the rims was to find something that looks like the Police star on the Police badge, that's why I chose a 5 spoke rim...

    Yeah! I saw it! Pretty nice! For mine, I'm thinking a Barricade replica from Transformers...

    Police cars is definitely a new theme. Haven't seen that one before. Post some pics when you're done.

    Well, I'm so behind the schedule with this project and it's big brother, but, here's something new...



    The dual color LED (red/blue) is a little crappy, specially the red color, so, I bought a brighter one and it's on the mail now...

    The custom flashing pattern is not that on the video, that's from another thing, but I wanted to test the electronics...

    I'll have to watch several YouTube videos to get some flashing patterns for it... Not that hard to imagine either...

    And, I got the police siren from eBay but I made a custom PCB for it with dual speakers...

    I'll try to update this project soon, I want to finish it this year...

    Hope you like it so far...

    Daniel.

    New LED pattern... Still need to work on it but I'm getting there... Also, changed both LEDs to the new brigther ones...



    More soon... I'm also doing the same to it's big brother... But, that's a little more complex...

    Another update... The circuit for the front lights... Actually it has two circuits in one board, one for the white lights and one for the blue/red lights...



    So, this is how it looks so far... I'm open to suggestions on the LED patterns...

    Red/Blue lights...



    White lights...



    Combined...



    Hope you like it so far...

    Thanks! Another update... I had laser cut 4 discs, made of translucent plastic with tiny lenses ( I don't know the name of it in English)...



    For what you might ask? This is a preview...



    More in a few days if the Holidays don't take too much time from me...

    Well, this project is taking long time because I can't decide, I wanted to be a surprise but I need help... I 'm going to add red/blue LEDs to the back of the wheels, and I can't decide in the pattern... I have two options:



    The one on the left has red on one side and blue on the other, so, everytime only one side of the wheel is dark... It's either red or blue turned on...

    The one on the right has red and blue on both sides, so, it's still half dark, but split in four... Two red are on, or two blue are on...

    I can't split them in 8 parts due to it's size, so, what do you think it would look better, the one on the right or the one on the left?

    Thanks!

    Daniel.

    Well, finally decided for the first option... Made the PCB, installed the 3-pin connector and the blue/red SMD LEDs...



    And, this is how it looks installed on the RPM carriers... I used two of the four screws to mount the PCB...



    I only made one to check that everything fits, I'll make the other three this week... Then I need to make the circuit that will control the lights...

    Hope you like it so far...
