well heres a pic of the inside of the saucer. I have circled the mods I have made to the kit and have mapped out my lighting. I was going to use grain of wheat bulbs to light the windows however my dad has changed my mind.

for the front spot light I think the best way to do it is to mount 2 of my spot lights in front of the bridge just need to get the alignment right. as soon as my LEDs show up ill post some light pics maybe next week I hope. I plan of getting most of the pieces blacked out and then going to spray white on the inside to reflect the light. then start working on the shuttle bay if the wife gives me some time:mad: the tension wheel broke after work so I just spent 1 1/2 taking it out and will have to get another one at work tomorrow. I HATE CARS!!!

man that spotlight is sweet
ever notice though that the warp engines are only blue when she goes into warp? all other times they are black





Isn\'t having a no smoking section in a restaurant like having a no peeing section in a swimming pool?

yeah I did noticed that. when complete I will have about 7 toggle switches to control various lights in the ship. I have an idea how to paint the nessel so that it looks black but when the light shines through it it will be blue. still has to be tested thou. I have the nessels all wired up now and I just need to black out a few more parts to begin assembling it. I have 4 spot lights, the 2 CCFL and some fiber optics that are going into the nessel. I hope to have those done by the end of the week, if I get some time to work on it. ill post some pics then I dont think you guys want to see my wiring job.
