Title: My UFO Mystery Ship, AKA Leif Erickson, AKA Soap Bottle Finished model.
Post by: Shawn McClure on December 04, 2018, 08:27:36 am
Well here she is.  It really didn't take much time to complete.   The only complaint is that there are two lights in the back that are RGB LED's.   They don't change at the same rate for some reason.  Other than that, I'm really happy with her.  The last picture is hopefully a movie of the engines going from impulse to warp.

Thank you for looking and all your support,
Shawn

Great photos!   Any idea of the scale of this kit?

Thank you Starseige.   I read it was 1/650.   Similar scale to the 1960

It seems over half my post didn't make it onto the thread, so my question and the rest of the comment got lost.
What I was trying to say was that I love the lighting effects that you achieved - especially int he hangar bay and nose section - I LOVE that indirect lighting on the nose - it's perfect!
Does the little ship come with the kit?

Thank you Madhatter.   The kit does come with the ship.  The whole kit however is molded in glow in the dark plastic so it takes quite a bit of paint to cover it up.    I loved that effect in the nose too.  Thank you for noticing that.
