Steve, loving it!  Can you show some detail on how you light the deflector yet avoid leaks around the edges (since it looks like it is going in after final paint)?

I have this well thought-out, sure fire plan that will totally...uhm...make it easy to...not see any...uhm......light leaks around that...uhm...part...thingy...

no.                    :P               :-[

Do you?

I have an idea but I don't know how successful it will be.



I made a cone light box to focus and limit the blue LED light to just the deflector dish. I painted the deflector dish with primer and an overlay of paint and I am hoping that, in scraping the paint off the back of the deflector to allow adhesion of the dish to the hull, I won't overexpose the part and allow light from the secondary hull LEDs to bleed around the light box.

I will have to use PPP to fill the gap around the dish and the hull, which I am hoping will be minimal, and then use some touch up painting to hide the addition.

Whaddayathink?

James,

As always, this is looking fabulous!

Don't worry about the little "uncorrectable" mistakes (Bob Ross calls them "happy accidents" anyway) as you will probably be the only one who sees them. The rest of us will be in awe about your build to see the happy accidents!

Stay strong and Airman on!

Steve

BTW - Love the R2D2 thingy! ;)

This is looking good, Padre!

Love your custom etch stuff!

Would love to see the finished product.

Keep going!

Shawn, this is looking very crisp and clean! Nice paint job!

I take it you are following Boyd's videos on making this beast?! If and when I get the C done, I will start on my 350 TOS E.

In the mean time, I am living vicariously through your build! ;)

Keep up the great work!

She's moving along quickly and well, Kevin!

The PE in the landing bays look pretty good to me.

Correct me if I am wrong, but you are going to use FO for the windows on the gator head; right?!

What are you going to do for the wash?

Keep it up! Looking great!

How well is the light showing up with the PE in place?  I was wondering how much it would block.

It blocks some but not too badly. If I was to do it again I would use an LED strip long enough to go from pretty much end to end along the top instead of only 2/3 like I did. That would make it brighter.

That is super weird. Chrome on windows here and it

Thanks for the quick reply, Ross.
I might just look into these, then. Just need to figure out the correct one based on voltage and rpm.
