Homemade Nuka Cola Quantum by Nyxelian Homemade Nuka Cola Quantum by Nyxelian
Made a nuka cola quantum for a mate of mine for his birthday, and thought it was worth sharing on here. Hope you all like.

Credit goes to Whatpayne for the label, decided to cover the label in sticky-back plastic to add that nice 50's plastic touch :D Thanks again Whatpayne.

found one of those 3 for a 1 lights that you can stick to walls in cupboards, put it in the tin, and there was a nuclear symbol hole in the tin, so it shines straight through, giving the impression that it glows :) quite impressed with the idea, but still think i could have done better. lol

In 2077, a new version called Nuka-Cola Quantum was introduced. According to the advertisements, it had twice the calories, twice the carbohydrates, twice the caffeine and twice the taste. To make it stand out more on the shelves and to give it an extra kick, the Quantum included a mild radioactive strontium isotope (and an eighteenth fruit flavor - pomegranate). The effect was a drink that not only boosted your energy, but also glowed with a bright blue light. While no ill effects were recorded by the Food and Drug Administration, the isotope also caused the drinker's urine to glow.

And if you have fallout 3,i suggest you go to the nuka cola headquarters. you pass right by it when the wanderers father walks back to rivet city with you. when you are there, check out one of the computers to see the ad for yourself.

I see you also had a slight problem with wrinkling labels. that curve is a b**ch huh? I had the same problem with mine. it tends to show up more with the quantum label than the classic nuka cola

Yeah, tried to smooth it out best I could. At a distance thought, it makes it look like its got some age to it, so its not that bad :)

lol, glad you like it. Experimenting a bit at the moment with which colours i can use in liquid. Still thinks that the nuka cola quantum is the best though!

What did you use for liquid?

ah, now that would be telling :)
I used just plain water and i added a spot of paint to it until i got a shade i was happy with.

really? hmm...what kind of paint? watercolor paint?

acrylic paint. watercolour probably wouldn't have given the right sort of look and it would take a lot to give it the right colour. And oil wouldn't mix with water too well. acrylic gives it that realistic colour and the transparent-ness to resemble a nuclear drink :)

They are actually making a comeback up here in Edmonton. Personally, I do not know why they were removed to begin with.
