I built this light fixture as a general prop. It has its own light source, and I can either manually rotate the light on any axis or use damped tracking to point it where I want. You can see that the power cord is flexible and bends when the light swivels up or down. The only thing it needs now is texturing.
I also modelled this gas pump, using the first image below as a model. I didn’t use any sub-surf modifiers or texturing, other than for the decals. I gave the green material a slight mirroring effect (.025) to give it that sheen, which I think looks pretty good, but I know that texturing will make it look even better.
