I have had several people inquire about how to build the Star at the top of a 12 CCR SuperStar display. The least expensive route is to use a wire frame star such as this one http://store.3glight...ing-star-green/ The wire frame star is $41 and he sells a set of lights for the 4 channel "exploding" star for about $60. Shipping charges apply. However, to make a 6 channel star like is seen in my videos requires 1/4 inch sheets of polyethelene plastic which is not readily available. Note that polypropylene plastic and acrylic are what you will find at stores like Home Depot. Polypropylene is cheapest, but it yellows in the sun and is brittle and will chip and crack easily when drilling holes in it. Acrylic is resistant to the sun and is strong but it takes much longer to drill holes in it and it is clear. The natural color of polyethelene is a milky white and it is resistant to the sun and is much easier to drill holes into. The milky white color diffuses the light well so that the lights are the star look more continuous. I am in the process of putting together some kits that would contain the following: 1 front star with holes pre-drilled 1 back star 10 side pieces screws to fasten the pieces together with 1 - 20 count light set 1 - 30 count light set 1 - 40 count light set 1 - 50 count light set 1 - 60 count light set 1 - 70 count light set To get light string sets with the proper count of lights for each star I had to custom order them from China. I just received them last week, they look good. In addition to having the right light count, they also have 2 inch spacing on the lights which makes it so there isn't a bunch of extra wire that takes up extra space. I will have the kits available on my web site at www.superstarlights.com by Aug 24. The price will be $199.99 plus $20.00 shipping. That's a higher price than I was hoping for, but thats the best price I can do. And as mentioned above, the less expensive route to go is the 4 channel wire frame star.
