I had to cut out the ceiling under the armor plating with the name ” Galactica” to accommodate the wiring and strip lighting. Replaced the LED that lights the name with a brighter one. Tomorrow I’ll close this bay up and start on the other. Lots of light leaks and light blocking to do but the hard part is done.
Also checked out my WW1 R Class submarine to make sure everything is functioning correctly before the regatta next month. The Nautilus is next.
All the Spock ears and shadow boxes were packed today and will be shipped tomorrow. It was a busy day.10407521_606538169483156_2537073086926758995_n 21770_606538119483161_459512200157560677_n 11079600_606538172816489_601435791625568334_n 11077866_606538216149818_1694696447202304142_n 11091441_606538239483149_7205005315780954386_n 10013969_606538219483151_3764391649751781816_n

This test is better still. I lighted blocked everything but the Galactica lettering and back lite it with strip lighting. Next I’m going to gradiant the back of the armour so that the top of the letters have more lighting than the lower half.
I’m going to increase the brightness of the fiber optics with a brighter LED but this is definitely on the way.
Got a Kirk puppet fully cast up. All parts except the vacuum formed helmet face bubble.
Cochran is ready to paint and next up is another Cochran and a bronzed Spock bust.
Friday is another shoot day for our movie, “Martians Attack SNG”. I be very busy after that doing all ex effects for the end of the movie. Space ships, ray guns, aliens, dogs and cats living together, total Armageddon . ;)
Great day and as always, more tomorrow.

More on the Battle Star

Spent a lot of the day installing the lighting on the BSG. Got all the engine lighting in and some of the windows. But its all in place. Hard one will be, or at least I’m going to try is to install the flight deck lights on the runway. I’ll have to hog out the floor, place some strip lighting in there and cover the floor back over with this styrene and some fiber optics to create the lights. Not sure it will work.
Tomorrow we are shooting more of the movie, The very ending, Next week the big green screen shoot of the ending on the roof. Busy, busy

Good day at the Studio

Got more ears made today. Made some more wearable Nimoy ears. Made up a Marty the Martian head for a gentleman named Charles Babbage who was kind enough to offer to scan it and turn it into a accurate 3D wire frame. He is art director for the studio linked hear:http://www.michaelcurrydesign.com/ Thanks Charles so much for doing this and taking an interest in our film!
Then I drew a bunch of story boards for our film, flagged off that skylight and I think we are now ready to star shooting the end of our movie.
But Mary decided it was time for me to start a modeling project on the side. Hmmm…she picked it and here it is. Yes Kip Hart I am finally building the big Bad Azz Battlestar! Man this is one fantastic kit as it melts together. Everything is so well thought out.
More tomorrow. Yes I’m going to light everything!IMG_1236 IMG_1238
