Question???

I want to try and recreate this effect (in the yellow circle) as a mount, for a side project?

Any Ideas??
Maybe sick a scale cow in it for laughs
Not too worried about the lighting it

Thank you in advance.. Bill.

Re: Question???

Here, back in August. Only a few replies at the time, nothing concrete.

Some back-painted plastic, cut in such a way as to create the cone shape would do it. I'm not sure how you would close the seam though.

The light source would have to be weak enough to fade out quickly. If you airbrushed the color, make it heavier the further down you go too.

Re: Question???

I saw a UFO model like that at Starship Modeler a few years ago. Used an illuminated plastic cylinder to simulate the beam. There was cow, if I remember correctly.

Edit: I found the model. Sorry, I was wrong. There was no cow.

But here's lamp with a cow: http://www.strangecosmos.com/content/item/179286.html

Re: Question???

Depending on the size and weight of the model you could use one or two clear plastic doll cones with their tops chopped off.
