I'm working on James West, Artemis Gordon, and Dr. Loveless now.

It wouldn't be too difficult to figure out the scale for that. Assuming David Hasselhoff is around 6' tall, the scale of the action figure would be 1/6. To convert the 1/24 KITT to 1/6, take 24 divide 6 which equals 4, or 400%.

So there was a third-generation Bandit... I'll have to look for some screenshots

Thanks for the info on the scale. I'll have to try that. The info may also work for a P51 Mustang that I want to scale up to a 6 inch action figure for the WW2 Captain America.

Thanks

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to mention that I'm leaving for MI early tomorrow morning and may be offline for a little while. I'll see you on the other side (of the lake!)

Thanks guys

I started putting my test build together, the first attachment is a picture of it so far. The second is a comparison of the original model (the same one used for the PDFs) and what will be the final version (improvements by imcold).

nice and clean build, ProjectKITT.
this is the original TransAM, upon modify it to be KITT, beside the infamous sensor LED in front of the car, are there any other physical differences?

Yes there are a few more differences: KITT also had a unique front bumper and more thoroughly blacked-out tail lights. Besides that the exterior changes are minor.
