Fuzznoggins' PL 1701A build


Well, I can't say that I've gotten very far with this, but I do have some shots of what I have so far.

Well, you guys are probably way ahead but this is all I have so far. Bear in mind these are digital pics and the lighting is a bit exhaggerated.

Thanks guys. Just to let you know, those nacelle grills actually have a tinge of purple to the glow. Also there are black lines painted in the grooves of the grills. The digital just picked up on the light and really make it look bright.

The electrics are pretty straight forward using parallel loops.

Ive just bought 50 ultrabright LED's off ebay with resistors for a 12v power source for 7.50 pounds.

Paul.

Ok, I have 4 pics on my Yahoo overflow site.

Look for PL 1/350th folder and the last 4 photos.

You will see some light leaks but those get dealt with later on in the process. Just the upper saucer alone has about 8 hours involved in it.

Enjoy

Great job, everything looks to be in good order. I like the RCS thruster lights, they are clearly lit.;) Cant wait to the secondary hull.

Thanks! Yes Noodle, those are white LEDs; 3mm 3000mcds. All of these are powered off a 3.3v side of a Computer power pack which supplies a 12v, 5v (not used) and 3.3volt side rated at 6 amps. I have the Navigation/Strobe and Photon Torpedo circuit along with the Nacelle CCFLs set up for the 12v side. What is great about the 3.3 side is that a mjority of the LED's (white) don't need any resistors.

I worked the neck section today and sparayed the impuls dome blue. Believe it or not, it took me 5 hours just for this portion. The neck was reinforced at the sauce attaching point with 1/4" styrene rods epoxied to each side. Once the lower saucer section mounts to the neck I'll be able to run a set of screws into the reinforcements. A lot of work and I really dread putting 4 sections of hull together. I'd rather hand drill 800 windows out of an E-C (which is next on my list). Oh well, more updates tomorrow.

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

Well here are a few more shots. I managed to get a cool spiked prism effect out of the blue impulse crystal. I will seal the saucer section tomorow. I do know the photons are a real knock out. With the Photon Circuit installed, the effect is absolutely real.

Now if I can settle down on how I want to light up this Deflector Dish.
