FM Studio Scale Lighted Viper Mk 2
1 Attachment(s)
I recently got started on another Viper Mk 2 from FM Models.
This one is being done for a friend.... :wink: ..... with lighting.
And it's brand new for me as far as this level of lighting goes.

Any way... here are the first pics of the start and where I'm at now.

Comments and remarks are welcomed.

Thanks Rel,
Here are a few more pics....
I did more work on the cockpit today. Adding the dial faces and screens from the decal sheet.
I'm a little disapointed with the upper didn't light up as much as I thought it would.
I may fix it... or leave well enough alone before I do too much...... :?

Don't know yet.
Any way....

Looking great so far.

Now that cockpit is very SERIOUSLY cool!
I love little details like that and lit up, doubly so.

Wow, that's gorgeous, can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks very much guys....
I'm very pleased with how this is turning out so far..... being my first foray into this level of illumination.
My former practice has been very simple lighing with simple bicycle LED lights and others.
I decided to fix the secondary monitor lighting.
This came out really good, and was surprisingly easy.... (well as easy as it could be for this build) :roll:

I tried taking some really close-up pics..... but..... :?

Ask and ye shall recieve bar.

Here are pics of the mostly finished pilot. I took a tip from the gentleman that is building Kuhn Global's Blackbird, and used nail polish to give the flight suit that shimmery appearence of the real one.
He still needs a little touch up here and there ...but......
