Sorry I took so long to answer your question. I've been away from the computer for a couple of days. Ok, here's how the lighting works. The ferrets hold the flashlights in their teeth. A small electric shock is applied to the ferret's tails, thus causing them to jump suddenly and flick the switches on the flashlights. This, of course, is timed to match the strobes and nav lights on the studio model!......also, a few ccfls and white led's have been added to to help out a little, not too many though. That would make the ferrets angry. And we all know how nasty angry ferrets can be.grantf said:umm.. please?
Only if you don't have 'em "descented". I had a couple of the little buggers not too long ago. Cute as hell & a fun mix between puppies, kittens & a two year old kid. :freak:grantf said:thanks, do they sell ferrets at radio shack? and don't they smell just a little?
Thanks for all of the kind words guys. That really helps keep me motivated to finish this beast of a model. Heres a brief overview of the lighting.drewid142 said:awww... go on... tell the guy how you lit it for real! There's a bunch of us waiting to read it!
Yeah, that's one of the things I'd like to play with eventually. Maybe when it's all done.Steve Roberts said:You know, if any of the lights are overpowering the others in a photo, the bright ones can be switched off partway through the exposure ...
... if you're on a tripod, of course.
12 Volts? Holy Crap! I'll bet that car battery looks kinda funny mounted underneath the ship! (New Federation cloaking device)Disillusionist said:All of those ccft's are quite power hungry, the ship pulls over 3.5 Amps at 12 Volts with everything on!
