You're right Kenny.....   does look like a pain in deed....   features like this could have easily been cast in the mold...   why not?
Just think of what my life might be.....   In a world like I have seen!

The drilling out was actually very satisfying Kenny, didn't get as much done today but I'll post when I've gotten a few lights in her!

It looked quite a challenge Liam. The engines look evenly lit, very nice!

Very nice indeed Liam! Wish I'd thought of putting fibre optics into my Viper cannons... I also like the way you've hidden the wiring "in plain sight" as part of the plumbing for the engines.  :)

"Of course Sir. How else do I keep my reputation as a miracle worker?"

Did all this optical fibre, then ripped it all out!


Power cables.


Engines with end caps.


Leds for lighting, more of this soon.


Cockpit with optical fibre redone, just using overhead light for light source. This will look a lot better soon :)


If I can get her sealed then comes painting!
Still going boldly!
