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.
