This piece was a test of my painting techniques in using simple cans of spray enamel to achieve desired cosmetic effects. Formerly, this was an Eddie Bauer LED lantern that I found for cheap at a thrift store. In addition to the painting of the individual parts (including the artificial rust on the chrome handles), I had also modified the internal circuit to generate a nice, nuclear-green glow.
Finally, I created a file to 3-D print a “wingnut” piece for the top of the core. Details, details, details.
This piece now adorns my vault, er, home, as a functional coffee-table piece.
“Fallout” and all associated media are property of Bethesda.
I lay claim to nothing. This is merely an homage.
