And now the main saucer complete
And a shot of the docking bay?
You are doing a really good job on this project!
The bottom pic shows great symmetry.
And the top of the super-structure complete
Now, to finish the super-structure and figure out lighting
So the last part of the super-structure done
And now the impulse engines.
I couldn't leave them flat, so with a bit of lateral thinking...
I recessed the things! Housing in the top right of the picture
And completed. Top view
And a side shot
Now to get it all together with the lights....
Those impulse engines are going to look sharp!
You should see them lilt up
Saucer attached, I think this is one of the better Federation ship's I've done
And now some teasers
That looks wonderful !!!
Thanks guys, and it's not done yet
The lights look GREAT! I take it the back end of the saucer isn't fully attached yet and it's just a "test fit"? This is going to be one incredible model!
@Sky Seeker , you're correct, only the saucer itself is attached.
I finished attaching the secondary hull parts, I waited so that I could get the alignment right.
And the captain's yacht completed
Just a big WOW!!! That ship all lit up is wild!! I might consider a pot to bring the lights down, then again, it just might be the camera, night with bright lights is hard to photograph, another method is making a voltage divider. They are an effective way of dropping voltage and having full voltage on the same circuit. This simple circuit shows how the larger resistance resistor drop 3.3volts from the circuit, but if the LED needed 5 volts, you could still get it by going from ground to the 5V input. The 3.3Volts would not be felt by the circuit. Using Resistors of equal value, you get equal voltage drops, so a 12 or 24Vcc system could really be cut up and be used to wired all kinds of stuff, and all kinds of voltage levels.
The supply I'm using to test does pump out a bit more than 5V
This lines up well. Nice job! Looks up to par with your usual work which is fantastic!
That's great, then you could make different levels of lighting, typically a diode takes 1.5 volts to turn on. You LED's should have a spec sheet. Using a breadboard, you could make different voltage drop and see how long you can get a diode to light up. Also, if you don't expose the Cathode or Anode, you can cut, and Polish the ends to shape LED's.
And, she is complete!
"Beauty" and lighting shots to follow once I can create a bit of a "set"
BTW; The stand was tweaked a bit as well....
