Beautiful arboretum! First time I've seen HDA's new decals in use on the sidewalls. Nice work!

Thanks guys! Onward and upward. The shuttle bay is sealed up. Again, practically nothing is cannon in there but it is pleasing to my eye. I wanted warm tones in there, not a bright white light. The upper and lower saucer halves are complete. The crew deck behind the bridge is also finished again with what I thought looked good, not cannon. The decals so far in this copy have been horrible. Almost all of the hangar and vehicle decals just crumbled along with the viewer decals in the crew deck. I had to piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle. I used HDA's decals in the crew lounge as well for a unique look.

Shuttle bay and arboretum look great! Are the lamp posts bloomed fiber optic?

I think I have the bridge flood lights where I want them. The top saucer is painted and I have started to paint the bridge area and crystal. I have installed a light box around the crystal for light blocking. I made some SMD's from LED tape for the bottom saucer's flood lights. I will be closing up the saucers soon after final wire management and light blocking.

Very clean paint work. Nice masking on the crystal.

Really nice job James. Your really moving along well. I like the shuttlebay and your officers lounge work.
If It's a model kit, I like it already.
