Hi guys,

Forgive me if this has been explored before but as a newbie I didn't discover anything in my Search. I'm planning on scratch building a Comm Pad from Styrene and since I have some electronics experience that I picked up building an R2-D2 (same name on Astromech.net) I thought I'd incorporate some electronics into it. I'm planning on including a few LEDs, maybe one flashing and one or two that just stay lit and I'm planning on including some sounds. Right now the plan is to use a small push button sound module, similar to that from a greeting card. I'm experimenting first with a 5 button that will allow me to add up to 5 sounds and a total of over 6 minutes of sound. I'll post links and pictures (as soon as I figure out how).

I hope I can be done in a week or two tops to be ready for Halloween but finishing my Pilot Uniform and R2 are the current priorities! Thanks!

Sounds like a fun item. Good luck!

Just remember that if you submit it for approval don't have the LEDs on in your pictures.
