Looks great so far Steve.  I can't wait to see what you choose for your final color!   Bwaaaaaa.   You know I had to do that.

Looks great.

You don't know how long I've been waiting to say that after you asked the same question of my UFO ship.  Hahahaha.

Steve, loving it!  Can you show some detail on how you light the deflector yet avoid leaks around the edges (since it looks like it is going in after final paint)?

I have this well thought-out, sure fire plan that will totally...uhm...make it easy to...not see any...uhm......light leaks around that...uhm...part...thingy...

no.                    :P               :-[

Do you?

I have an idea but I don't know how successful it will be.



I made a cone light box to focus and limit the blue LED light to just the deflector dish. I painted the deflector dish with primer and an overlay of paint and I am hoping that, in scraping the paint off the back of the deflector to allow adhesion of the dish to the hull, I won't overexpose the part and allow light from the secondary hull LEDs to bleed around the light box.

I will have to use PPP to fill the gap around the dish and the hull, which I am hoping will be minimal, and then use some touch up painting to hide the addition.

Whaddayathink?

That looks pretty cool Steve.  I don't see any light leaks on it.
