I'm working things out, plus this week was full of medical appointments. Sometimes I get whole new workable ideas from trying to figure out my current project. some pics will come soon for the huge 1701, and big Klingon D7 with lasers and the 1/1 Spindrift.

Light blocks that black paper light boxes will be constructed around. The entire enterprise will have these. A Klingon subject is also being light boxed for light leaks to be eliminated.

OK! so I just did a light test to see if I would have to cut out the windows on the above pieces in order for the leds to sufficiently show thru, and they did! In fact- they were reduced from glaring white super led intensity to a soft glow, and this technique might benefit many people that I have seen post that the leds are too bright on the model they are lighting up. SO there you have it, the solution to the led glare. I will be constructing the light boxes next.

I'm working on them still DC. I am not going to light up the rear hanger deck, except for the top aft dorsal light. The blinkies on the side will still be installed. Some hard decisions on what not to do are coming up. Also I am running into the same old problems on the KD7 by wulf111, I would recommend on the nacelle middle part ends, to detach them from the main part, and glue them to the end as separate units, instead of trying to bend them around and make them fit. The front end part might just work better as a solid piece that is crushed into shape as a oval dome like affair. I am cutting the huge spindrift parts right now and still have to modify a few little spots. all this during medical appointments. Doctors will just fill your week with appointments if you let them, and they wont be happy until you are eating vegetable mush and ice water. A 58 year old medium large and powerful man like me should have the blood sugar of a 19 year old ballerina or they wont be happy. But it's still a challenge and I have reduced my triglycerides by 1/3rd and all that so we do what we must do. those of you who don't ROKU, I would advise that you do if you want a wider span of viewing options, the plug in device is only about 25 bucks at Walmart. so that's about it, I printed out a 1 pager Raptor fighter jet and will cut it up and glue it soon. I saw a 1701-A papermodel that's about 15 inches long that's going to come out soon. It looked pretty good! that's about it for now.

I've been banned from Papermodelers.com due to Airdave and one of his drunken rampages. He accused me of stealing his Jupiter 2 model when it was Jaybat's model. I have had permission to modify Jaybats models for almost 10 years from Jaybats himself. so their agenda is for AD to libel someone then get rid of them. srike one was when I defended Zathros over a racial slur from AD towards him. Then AD went after uhou02 in a 5 page rant that was removed, texman went after me for mentioning this and announced that they never remove threads or comments. that started a 3 day slough of insults and harassment for rickstef and AD and a few more of their friends. now this. I am fed up with the baby shit from a bunch of kooks. you probably wont be seeing much of me anymore because I have simply lost interest. I have other things to do, and even though I am not blamed you here, I am going to be busy with other stuff.

I am sorry that this has happened to you. You are better off without them anyways. It is their loss to have banned you from that site. To be honest, I am surprised that it has not happened to me yet, with all of the comments that I have made. As for taking a break for awhile and getting a few RL things taken care of, I fully understand. Take as much time as you need. Just remember, you are always welcome here. You have done nothing wrong. So, do not worry about it.

Thanks RB, im feeling more up to stuff this morning. I guess airdave didnt get it into his head that you haven't been pirating his koolwheelz for 10 years? and you are right, that site is mostly for ww2 pms anyway, I never really felt welcome there. so I join the long list of my favorite people who have been banned from there, Zathros, Joe Melvin, and many others. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will lose the anger at them for not even realizing that it was AD that came at me for stealing his kw's when it wasnt even his model[?]. I also am a highly overly sensitive artist, and having that kind of crap thrown at me when ever the mood strkes them is just more than i can stand. I gotta get back to installing the blue laser in the Phaser 2 pistol with memo card sound this morning, thanks for being a friend, and have a great day.

Keep your head up high and don't let them steal any time from your life. The number of comments on that forum that make me cringe is staggering. It seems to especially attract grumpy and selfish people. I could elaborate but why bother. This is the friendly and respectful place to be and being banned from many other places is actually a good thing. Good riddance.

I am glad that you are feeling better. in the mean time, I really do not want to ruin this great thread that you have started by turning it into a bashing AD and PM.com. Please take what ever time you need for yourself so that you can regroup and recoup.
I am looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Very nice! I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
Once you are finished, could you take a small video to show it working?
