HI again Jim its lookin nice as I love to light all my models up wheather its a plane or a ship or a starship an I run my 1/350 enterprise off the mains through a transformer so don't have to worry about batts are you gonna fit the 1/350 crew figures ? an I use them 2mm smd led's but got to be carefull when handlin as the wires will easyly come off .But I found if I put a tiny drop of super glue on the back of the led they will not pull off then but any way back to your voyger im lookin forward to more pics as I really enjoy startrek

Hi I too have base stand custom built from states from first voyager I built ,from that I am keeping wires too a min as there are more upper hull ,navigation torpedo launch plus deflector dish ber too blue ,all will be remote control plus sound affects for above naccelles also will give warp affect ,total now £210 sterling from u s .
So for me ,time spend inhance this model for the better overlooking affect ,voyager kit wasnt molded for lighting so you have min space to work with
Too date there are 52 wires
Three circuit board one mother board .regards jim lighting blocking today rear houseing plus spray gun painting .if all goes to plan patience cuppa and relaxing music .cryton

Scale is stated on picture submitted 1/350 51 inches only one size from revell .
The knack is the mould isnt made for lighting this is my second
As my first came to grief last year broken beyond repair ,
So this will have more lights controled with remote and sound affects torpedo and naccles warp affect , strobe smd led s shuttle bay playing with give it the real affect ,
Done as much at present awaiting another circuit board from states
So working on other projects victory and long range dessert all ways good to have another going meantime .cry

Hi ,slow steady progress ,
Answer to queation delta flyer I got from someone put in draw toughing up at moment,
Resin mold ,shuttle plus came with kit gonna do it taking off some clear circluar hold looking for min in wigth but strong enough ,at moment impacting the trillion or so wires into bottom section cutting trimming needed as I still have top section to do
The hanger bay I added static smd orange though it gives a real feel to model ,
