Theater side project

I was asked about a light sequencer I made a few years ago. I found it in storage and discovered it was severely damaged. I am in the process of rebuilding it for a current theater/play production. It turns on a light or light string similar to Christmas lights, one at a time in a sequence. The effect if 4 strings are set up in line will give you a marquee type or rope light effect. My box is selectable from 1 to 8 channels. For example, if you have a 3 step animation of lights, you can set it for 3 channels. Speed is also adjustable. Perhaps when I get more time, I will add a feature that will allow 1-8 channel or dual 4 channels.

Classic Battlestar galactica I.L. series cylon head update

I have the 3D render done.

Starbuck's cylon repair tool update

I did a card-stock mock-up of the tool to gauge size. I feel I am on the right track. As reference, I only have a frame still form a 1 min segment from the TV episode Return of Starbuck from the galactica 1980 series.
