Sweet Zombie Jesus!
That's some good work there...
At first i though you had clear-cast the whol thing, but your WIP pics show that not to be true!
Well done there.

It actually does look very nice. I like the diffusion of the impulse engines.

Also, not to pick nits but I don't think Revel's Voyager was 1/1400. Closer to 1/650th scale, I think.

What've we told you? Leave the thinking to us...
Remember that there was a smaller set? With Voyager, the Maquis ship and the Kazon ship?
In 1/1400?

I will douse them with petrol and offer them as a sacrifice to appease the modelling gods...
Actually, i only bought them to get the little Voyagers...
I want to make a few different versions(The first one will probably be the USS Bellerophon).
I was even tempted to re-master the whole kit with better windows and clear-cast parts for lighting.

Absobloodylutely splendid job on the lighting, took a while for it to sink in (like most things these days) that it was the wee Intrepid from the three ship set.
Like i ever note what damn scale is scribbled on the box

Clean and spot on build, nicely done !

Wow! I missed this thread previously, somehow! Very nicely done! Especially w/that small kit.

I used Microscale MICRO KRISTAL KLEAR. Works fine - also on bigger windows like on my Nebula:
