Okay, here's what I'm looking to have/get/make/accomplish. I want to have a 1:24/1:25 scale (G scale) jukebox for an idea I have. Here's the stipulations....

1: Like for it to be hollow. I am running earbuds from a small MP3 player I will have tucked away to play specific music out of it (will need to cut holes in sides for "speakers" which will be the earbuds...).

2: Look very close to a 50's Wurlitzer, or can be crafted to look like one.

3: Like for it to be lit up from the inside, or at the very least can alter it enough so that LED lights can be run inside.

4: All this and 1:24-1:25 SCALE.

I have searched Google but the sizes and scales keep throwing me off. Maybe if I had the correct size in inches-to-scale I was looking for, then I can just buy the one I need and hack away. Any thoughts?

Jimmy Flintstone make a Wurlitzer type lookin jukebox, but it's cast as a solid block. You could probably ream it out with a Dremel to get it hollowed out inside. I've seen these dun up with BMF and candy paints an MAN do they come out lookin GREAT! Your idea is a killer one. I LIKE it!!!! :D ;)
