  1. This can happen when accidentally using the wrong power supply (24V) ... I call it battle damage ... arghhh ... could have been a disaster though ... haha. I like the light in this shot. And already built the case for this SD. cheers Dirk
  2. There is a bending problem at the bow unfortunately. Not fully glued yet. More progress Spotlights Lights cheers Dirk
  3. First coat of paint. Tamyia XF-2 with some drops XF-19, a bit too much XF-19 (blueish) this time but that's ok it is "just" my testingthingsbuild The amaount of details is ... no words. Comparing Bandai and Zvezda Bridge ... not fair to do honestly cheers Dirk
  4. Some preparations and tests. The stand. Anti Lightbleeding preparations. Both SD's together. For me the trench never was a big issue BUT the compressed superstructure is. That's what the Zvezda makes so flat lookin But I must say I really like the size way more then Bandai's. More preparations. Powerconnector Primer (Stynlrez black) The detailing Bandai did is incredible... cheers Dirk
  5. Hej J, I did not used 0.5mm (oversized imo) but 0.25mm fibers in 0.3mm holes cheers Dirk
  6. Thanks for your kind comment >Roughly how much fibre optic do you need for this level of lighting? Puhhh, hard to say, approx 1500-2000 maybe more holes I drilled. I did not count them > Are the lights purely on/off or do they have logic and effects built in? On/Off. The engines have some logic though via Arduino. cheers Dirk
  7. I finally glued the hull together ... I started the case so here are the pictures cheers, Dirk
  8. Thanks First testshots with my Canon. I'm pretty satisfied with the lights, colors and the positions. And some details I missed to post. cheers, Dirk
  9. Some more impressions. Will take better pictures soon. At the moment it's just my iPhone and with low light it's not the best. cheers, Dirk
  10. Love the Eagle. Waiting in my stash Dirk
  11. Thanks guys, I used Tamiya XF-2 mixed with a bit of XF-19. The SD is 60cm long and far from being finished (panels, panellines, pin washing, decent weathering) Dirk
  12. A major update, the hull got their base coat. So lot's of pictures for your enjoyment Hope you like it! cheers Dirk
  13. Bridge and upper super structure got their first coat of paint. My main goal for the bridge was to get a nice depth and shadows. I am happy with the result. Lights. cheers, Dirk
  14. Thanks for your comments Engine Section, Hangarbays and Trenches are airbrushed. I then cutted the FO's in the trenches using a sharp micro chisel. Now it's about preparing the lighting. cheers, Dirk
