Glad to see you finally found a set that is working nicely for you! She's looking great.

Nice work regardless of size.  Still, snaps for work on a small scale kit!
I am digging your 'multi-tape' masking scheme and hope to do the same soon...well....soon is relative.  Maybe a month from now. 

Nevertheless, "By Grabthar's Hammer!"  I'm ready for some paint!

@Steve, for the bussards I have decided on a combination of things, all designed to distract attention from the seams.  I will lay down some 'seams' from the opposite direction (up/down vs. left/right), and also create a few artificial 'divots' like those from the injection points at the tips of the collectors.  This way I hope to hide the seams and divots in plain sight, making them just part of the background.

Starboard nacelle wired up and tested SAT.  Unfortunately when testing port lighting assembly I touched the connections with no resistance...two LEDs DED.  Good thing I have more!  Now the starboard side is resting after a little gorilla glue application to keep everything in place. 

As for ventral/dorsal, I figured most of the viewing would be from above and the side, so the ventral was sacrificed.  Of course, the hope is between sanding and painting neither will have visible scars.

In this pic, the double strands of magnet wire are visible (two filaments for redundancy).  Also in view are 'blobs' of clear gorilla clue and the small piece of paper to help deflect the blue light away from the collectors.  (the tape will be removed once everything sets)

Welcome back Shaw! Wish my finished stuff looked as good as your "quick-n-dirty" test shots do. 8)
Welcome to the forum Anthrax! Looking forward to seeing your work. Jump right in and have some fun.
I figured, with the way some of you fix up your TMP E, which scares me to death to even think of beginning, I could spend some time on this beauty and do my best for it!

Don't sell yourself short, Steve. Keep in mind that the one thing about the big 1/350 kits is at that size it's easier for us old fuddy duddies to see and work on the details. You're working with a much smaller pallette with the Protector. She's looking fantastic!

What sort of LEDs are you using for the navigation lights, like on the saucer and such?

They are 1206 SMD LED's.  I got a pack of 5 colors in idividual strips from amazon. 20 LED's per color.  They are very tiny so hard to handle but work well.
I think this just about sums it up Steve...
