  1. Science Fiction Modeling
    I thought I saw some Raytheon masks for sale for either the 1/537 or 1/350 Enterprise Refit. Does anyone know where to purchase these? Or as an alternative what is the best way to do the Raytheon lighting? Another option is that some LEDS may now be strong enough to do the effect without using...
  2. Model Lighting
    I've spent a year adapting the Fujimi Spinner, the final thing (!!!) I need to do is light the bubble domes, for which I think I'll need a board with - - 14 channels for pulsing / breathing light sequences - Sequences to be of slightly varying speeds - Board to be max 6cms x 4.5cms I tried to...
  3. Science Fiction Modeling
    I'm new to modelling. I have no idea how to wire anything from scratch. I need a lighting kit that is ready to go for the Enterprise NX-01 by Polar Lights 1/350 (not the refit). I did find some online, Monsters In Motion, a couple on eBay. Not sure if there is a better one that you all might...
  4. Model Lighting
    I have not done any lighting in a model kit, save for the original Motion Picture Enterprise smoothy refit and it's included saucer light kit back in the day. I know many threads here cover light blocking, but I was wondering if it might be helpful to have forum members chime in under one thread...

I have a 1:24 Worsel figure, the Cycroader, and the Goblin fighter. The Boskone Goblin fighter kit comes ready to light, which...

  7. Moebius Models
    I recently started with my Moebius Iron Man kit and immediately decided it had to be lit up as the ones I saw on the net that had been looked really good. I am at the process of sanding and working away the seams after having to figure out the lighting system and putting it all inside. Here is a...
  8. Science Fiction Modeling
    I've been keeping a build log on this project. This one's lighted and motorized, and copper leafed. (I'll try anything!) Here are my posts about it, starting with installing CCFL and LED lighting and ending up with video of a test of the drive to swivel the heat ray: Pegasus 1/48 Martian War...
