I wanted to start off by focusing on the ship's interior. I printed the ship's decks onto backlight film and the bridge control panels and monitors onto slide film. The effect is really nice.







Wow, that's genius! First time I've seen this process used in all the Enterprise build-ups I've ogled over the years! Beautiful detailed work!

How did you create the slides and know they would be the right size?

Did you photograph them, or some kind of transfer/print?

Not a whole lot of wiggle room, that small.
I scanned in Paragrafix's decals since I was using their photo etch. As long as I traced my new artwork on top of that scan, I knew it would fit.

Once the artwork was done, I sent a PDF to Express Slides, and they had them back to me in about week.

That slide film idea is inspired! Seriously, since you already have the artwork and files, you should create a little aftermarket enterprise (see what I did there?) and sell them. Order up a couple dozen, give a reasonable mark-up and I bet you could move them all. I know I'd buy a set for my next 1/350.

Now if you'd only properly align that bridge so the turbolift door matches where the turbolift is located. >:)

Didn't want to start a new thread for this, but I also wanted to try the window inserts for my Revell JJprise.

I know the Revell model says it's 1:500 scale, but if you go with the official size, and also the very close saucer rim shot in Star Trek Beyond, Revell's model is actually 1:1000.

So with that in mind, I printed my corridors to be that size onto backlit film. This photo doesn't really do it justice at all though. In person it's really sharp looking.

Artwork...



And inserted into the saucer rim...
