College book store. Its meant for brass etching. Art majors use it for their work.

Lights -

After working on them on and off since this model started. I have finally finished the lights. Most of the connections are permanent (and covered by shrink tube) but some are rather temporary and messy, These will be fixed when everything is installed in the model in sections.

Want to give a shout out to tenacontrols and their awesome control boards. This one is just the standard federation ship board and not the Ent D specific one, but it worked out pretty good. I took some liberty by adding flashing white running lights to the front of the saucer. I wanted to keep the running lights in scale so they are all fiber. its kinda hard to see in the photo but they all light up super bright. I used .75mm and 1.0mm fiber.

For the rear running lights I am gonna pass 1.0mm fiber most of the way through the holes. The light blocking paint that will be painted on later will be scratched away and reveal the light shining through.

More updates to come.

Thanks for looking!

More Photoetch! -

More photoetch added to various parts of the model.

Even though I had already dug the trenches in the pylons I decided to use the photoetch that is meant to cover up the wires. It adds some nice detail and I liked the idea of loosing the poorly defined panel lines that came on the model. I just ground down the surface a little so the photoetch would sit flush and puttied around the edge.
