A small fire in the hangar Saturday toasted the day's progress of installing the twin blinker LEDs and board over the hangar door. Something shorted the board when testing at 12V. Smoke rose through the aft dome hole, signaling the XO to come storming and halting the day's activity. New board on order. Also, the starboard cabin light panel died - a broken copper ribbon in the LED strip forced a hasty removal via needle-nosed pliers. A replacement was made and reinstalled today.

The remains:



Nacelle lighting began with the port side. Following the example done by Dave Lewis's Miranda build, the blue LED strips were set on the inboard half to bounce and diffuse the light off of the outboard half. A white SMD tab was mounted aft to light the rear cap. The bussard ring lights were test fitted here and the control board fixed internally on the port drive. Also seen here is a orange blinking LED in the center - this is the source light for (2) .5mm fiber optic strands that will exit the detail area between the inboard blue grills.

This is such a great build. Fantastic!! Will there be a kit or is it a one off?

The design reminds me of the Voyager, with the lack of a neck between saucer and secondary hull. Makes it sleek and fast.

Btw is the shuttle shown in the hangar from the TOS E kit or is there another source for those 1/350 TOS shuttles?

Awesome lighting in the nacelles! The little details just shine through in your builds.

I don't think the wiring harness in my Boxster is run that tight!

Jesus.

Nice work Bill.

You have probably already thought of this but be careful that circuit board is insulated from that Aluminum tape. The tape will short things out for sure!

Thank you! While this is a custom scratch build, the nacelles are available separately now from Blap! Models as a 30-piece resin kit. Eventually, there is a plan to produce Sentinel as a 1:1000 kit.

Yes, the shuttlecraft is from the 1:350 Enterprise kit

Yep, that was my first suspect. I have since removed it. Although I did cut the area from where the board was mounted - something internal touched the exposed board when the top was placed on the hull.

My respect for you as a builder is completely gone now. And no, it doesn't take much...

The Sentinel project was greatly, if not entirely, inspired by Mr Lewis's MIRANDA build. There is one image of the M - in progress - that remained indelible on my mind while constructing the Sentinel and a goal for me to attain. It may be a silly thing, but picturing the moment when I could turn on her engines was something that has taken many months and I wanted to re-create that very image Dave had taken with M at a similar stage. So, I cued up the Andrea episode (had to pause at the right moment) and lined up the shot with S.

Thank you Dave, and for letting me borrow Andrea.

The original shot:



The recreation:
