Those look wonderful, Don... though I have to admit, I've been seriously considering buying the translucent backlight panels (available on CultTVMan's site). I'm curious what you think about those?
I have an AMT bridge... well, technically, TWO of them (to give me enough stuff to built the entire bridge, not just one side). I have Thomas Sasser's old Bridge detail set (bought through Lunar Models back in the day). My main reason for never finishing it was... well, there are actually two items. First, figuring out the best way to backlight, and second, figuring out an "exterior dome" setup for the model.
I have some very fine metal photoetch screen (bought from Eduard a few years ago) to make the lower-tier vent panels. I'm guessing you plan to do something similar? And I bought some stuff at Michaels a couple of years ago... some textured, clear colored film with swirly patterns... to do the above-console light panels.
Having decided to use the stuff I found recently on CultTVMan, my main "who knows?" issue remains the outside of the model. I just can't handle having those consoles exposed like that... it makes me cringe! Am I the only one bugged by that?
EDIT: To save any of you guys a moment or two of searching... here's the CultTVMan page I was mentioning:
EDIT 2: I decided to check out that figure... and all I can say is "wow." This sculptor is talented! There's a lot of stuff on that site, but here are the three "Trek-based" ones he has... they're really tremendously impressive, I think. But, at 54mm, doesn't that make the bridge out of scale to this figure?
