    Very nice and clean! :) What happened to the saucer section? Do I spot a misalignment? ;)

    I like the placement of the Name & Registry # on your Primary Hull; others I've seen either sit too close the edge of the Disc, or too high on the hump.

    Looks great... keep on Truckin'!

    im trying to filter the leds for the windows so I don't have to use a whole bunch. also I lost the hanger door lip with the green and red retangles and am scratch building one as punishment for my carelessness, instead of printing out another.

    Had some time to work on it today. It looks like I will have to put in 5 white leds, or else the saucer won't light up properly. One led in the center and 4 under each shield panel and rim windows.
