The “Flying Crank Ghost” kit

The “Flying Crank Ghost” kit


Phantasmechanics has a really creepy/beautiful floating ghost kit, she even comes with a great back story! – “She floats in mid-air, wrapped in an ethereal glow, her eyes blazing red and piercing the souls of all who see her. Her arms move smoothly, each in its own natural way, while she slowly hovers, rising and falling as she gestures (the animated image above speaks for itself). Depending on the whim of her builder, she even may speak, her eyes flashing with the words. Would you like to invite to her to inhabit the confines of your beloved haunt? If so, ready your lab and prepare to conjure her forth, for Victoria’s mechanism is simplicity itself and the plans for her construction lie below…” [via] – Link & instructions.

    I made one of these a few years back. It’s great, a father gave me the thumbs up when it made his kid cry. I used blue LEDs for the eyes and covered them with cut ping-pong balls to soften them.
