USS Voyager with Lights and Weapons
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:10:21 pm »
Here is the final video of my Starship Voyager build. As many of you know, Voyager is my favorite starship in the Star Trek universe. I don't know what it is about her but she is just an amazing ship. I had a blast building her and I could not be happier with the results.

Thanks to Ralph at TenaControls for building the the boards used to control her lights and weapons systems. I would also like to thank Doug Drexler for taking the time to chat with me on ideas of making the display base graphics. It's not often I get to chat with the people who inspire me to build my models! And thanks to everyone who watches and shared your tips with me on building my models.

I'll see you all on the next build!

Absolutely love your build!  ;D
The colors look so nice in the blue shades. (mine is getting the grey treatment, although a lot lighter then Revel advised)
Also the detail painting is very sharp on your Voyager.

Like whb64 said, you did an amazing job!

Very Nice! Voyager always seemed like a hard model to get right at least for me but you did a great job. What color did you ues for the base blue?

Looks great Mike!
  You did a bang up job with the paint and details. It's not the easiest kit to paint but you nailed it nicely.  ;)
Also, excellent base!

Thanks! It took lots of mixing to get those blues

I mixed my own blues with different shades of Tamiya blues. Sky Blue is the main for all of the shades. I mixed white for lighter shades. I think I added some medium blue to darken it. I think I also added some Sky Grey as well.
