    I would like to make a toast (with Romulan Ale :Drinks:) to congratulate @Cybergrinder for an EXCEPTIONAL build of the U.S.S. Voyager. As you can see he has added LEDs. The effects of doing such really brings the model to "life"!
    KUDOS TO YOU ON A FINE JOB WELL DONE!!!

    Well deserved. A model that takes really good pictures, especially lit up on dark skies. :)

    This is great build. I think its final presentation does not do it justice. I would love to see it on better pictures where it will realy shine.

    That was part of the problem @bigpetr , I don't have the time to photo shop :( There are some "darkfield" shots on the build thread.

    Very nice. When I tried to make this one it didn't look anything like that In fact I never had a straight line one it or a decent curved one either!
