Defiant - 1:420 - almost done
« on: February 03, 2019, 05:22:34 pm »
I think it's been about 2 years since I put aside the 350 Refit and moved to something simpler until I got motivated again for the Refit.

Here's my last two years of work - mostly off rather than on.  Sadly, it was going to be set up with Arduino code to manage the strobes and phasers, but since I lost the strobe circuit, I'm going to just go with simple lighting.

All that remains now is to finish off the stand and add some dull coat.

Looks great Joe.  Stinks about the strobes.   That attach attachment to your base is a great idea.

To build or not to build.... that is the question.   The answer.... build... Duh.

Shawn,  I figured that the mic gooseneck blended perfectly with black polycarb.  I was staring at it yesterday and finally realized that the top also screwed nicely into the mic jack connector that I had mounted in the lower hull.  That's what I get for ordering parts 2 years appart. . .

That sounds familiar.   I went though that too with my Reliant.   Relearning what your initial plan was is kind of tough.
