Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights

Jumping around... got this in the mail last week from Ralph at Tenacontrols: The Spindrift's engine grills would fade slowly up and down to signify the atomic reactor was fully charged. This board from Tenacontrols reproduces that effect and can power up to six red LEDs: https://farm5.staticflickr.c...

Re: Spindrift from Land of the Giants by Polar Lights
