Revell Uss Voyager
« on: November 05, 2012, 03:50:29 am »
Thought i'd show off my first ST ship, Uss Voyager. It was built in around a month but it's far from perfect. The decals have since started to peel, i think they were old because they were a pain to apply. Overall though being my first lit model and my first ST ship i think it came out pretty nice. Initially it had reg and green nav lights on either side but they were distracting so i swapped them out for solid white leds. All the pics are of the ship before the base was sourced. I'll get another pic of the finished ship sometime.

What do you think???

Wonderful job. To think this was your first lighted starship build is pretty awesome. That's a lot of work.
Thanks for sharing it and I hope we'll see more.
If It's a model kit, I like it already.

This was more of a test build to see if i could do it and how it would turn out. Now i know the lighting is a simple job i want to build the 1/350 Enterprise refit. I always wanted a Sovereign and a Constitution lit side by side.

I'll try and get some decent pics up sometime. These were taken using my webcam which isn't a lot of good.

More pics as promised. As i say it's a test model so far from perfect. It was taken apart and put back together so many times to get right but i have learned so much from it.

Looking good for a test baloon.
Get some new decals to give her her registry back and you are done :D

Its certainly better than my first lit ship which actually caught fire and then exploded setting my bedroom curtains alight. That was 20 ears ago and I can still smell the smoldering plasic and laquer.

Yikes!!  LEDs are quite a bit safer.

I always run the electrics through a circuit breaker until i'm 100% finished. That way if there are any problems the circuit breaker pops and cut's the power.
