Some more work that Ive done of this monster of a kit.
The first picture shows the clear red plastic I cut to go around the torpedo tube.



The next two show one of the nav lights, which consists of four parts (aluminium tube with a brass tube inside that, the led and some clear sprue pushed in the front). I think I over engineered that just a bit.




This one shows a bit of wire work thats been done with aluminium rod and solder.



Last one is a paint test

Awesome work indeed, and such attention to detail in every step and take it this is your project? Do you ever do build up work for people wanting model kits made to this quality but not as large a project as this obviously? It is really great to follow this project from someone with the UK too!

Beautiful work man. No I dont think you over engineered the nave light mounting, I think it gives it a perfect amount of detail, and light emmision. I cant wait to see the red rings around the photon emmiter light up!

Steve Neisen did an incredible job of designing and building this kit..........I only wish I had the money to purchase one of them. I drool every time I see one of them.
