Quick update, i got the electronic working! Unfortunatly, the looping option of the adafruit soundboard is not that great, but it will have to do! I hacked open a small bluetooth speaker so rechargable battery and aux cable ready, I guess i'll be your local con DJ! you can see my needler sound test 8 seconds video here! plus have a small light test with a flashlight (it's not as orange in real life)

hey long time no seen! im still alive and slowly working on the needler! progress is really slow as ive been really busy, but im still very much working on it! all the main peices are now printed and ready for finishing! untile then i can hardly do more work as everything is dependent on the finishing and painting of the needler body. for the needles LED I followed D3LTA's advice of coloring the white LEDs in purple to make the needles more accurate! (i dont have a picture them turned on currently, more coming up soon!(i hope))

Long time no seen, eh?
When school restarted back in feburary the needler went into a box and collected dust for a while, when things got insane, well i began to have a lot more free time!
progress wise it is not a lot, but it's something! reason being is that i have MANY other halo related project that i dont necesarely post about on the forum. Should i make a mega thread of all my projects? let me know
So what changed? I attacked the sanding, putty and filler primer monster of this project. i carefully started with a palm sander just to nock out the biggest layers, wich sped things up drasticly!
