Got the landing bay closed temporarily. Re did the landing strip and lights. this time i printed them off on plain paper and used aluminium tape to back it to block light, then punch holes with a pin over cardboard.
Just with clamps on the top and bottom fits so clean and there’s no light leaking between the seams.
Next light block it, paint it and close. Most of the day was spent cutting this weeks “SNG Weekly”. Tomorrow we shoot the end of our movie. Green screen and lots of of it. Which means next week I’ll be editing, composites and VFX.

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.
