Well Mary and I got more done today. Mary got the hanger bay assembled. I got the deflector lighted up after trying all kinds of tricks to get it to glow. Not easy. This will all be explained in the upcoming video. Some pictures of some of my scale Radio controlled birds. My beloved ME 262 which has been clocked at over 100 mph. My ready to maiden BF-109. Can’t wait to fly this one! And my Albatross from WW1. She will maiden soon as I test the engine. Stay Tuned.

Started the engineering section. One long strip of strip LEDs through the middle snaked around lighted up all these windows in a single bound. The White inside works so much better than the silver IMO to spread the light evenly. This took less than 30 minutes to do at the end of the day. The saucer section now has all the lights. The FO’s(fiber optics) need to be trimmed tighter. Mary started on the PE for the hanger bay which will be open. I’m moving on to the engineering section tomorrow and video is uploading.
Lots of lens flares here. Got the saucer section almost completely lighted. Didn’t finish the spin on the top. One side is slotted the other side still has the drilled holes that star it. These had to be modified the kit doesn’t have them setup for lighting. There is a lot of that in this kit. The lower saucer section had to have those four slots opened and I made some clear parts to fit in too.They are bright but the camera is just over cranking the exposure. There’s already 50-60 LEDs in the saucer section going to need a higher amperage power supply. This ship is so over lighted it’s silly.
