Time to a departure from my normal builds.


This kit has three ships one enterprise and two romulon the fiber optics will be replaced with newer  slightly better stuff and also the lights will be replaced with LEDs.


The first thing I have done isinstalled the light and fiber optics in the enterprises saucer section ready for closing up and painting

Got a bit more done the enterprise is all together and the soldered joints have held the black paint on the saucer is to stop light bleeding and will be over coated in white

At last I have the enterprise finished and all lights working this will not be the final position just for display.
Next up will be those pesky Klingons and the ships are a bit harder to do20170314_171612.jpg 20170314_171704.jpg 20170314_171621.jpg

I have just found the background for this build as I thought I had lost it for good so it's time to have another stab at it.20190522_175651.jpg
