Excellent work, as always, Trekmodeler! I really like the base you made for this one. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but it looks like you took Ratheon's back-lighting approach in a few spots on this one?

Top Notch Work!!

Pray tell, does this mean you are closer to having your lighting kit ready?
(Hint, Hint...)

You make it look easy..

Thanks guys!

Ruckdog, I actually masked the spotlight areas themselves that simply let the light shine through. Since I was only going to backlight a few smaller ones, I didn't have to use aluminum tape all over the hull; but I guess the concept is the same.

Lou, Everything is ready except the dag-on instruction manual. I'm going to post a more detailed update in the light kit thread later on.

You guys put me ashamed!

While I have not even nearly finished my FIRST PL Refit, you are already building your X version of it….

Am crawling back to my stone now and won’t come out until I have finished mine….


Oh wait.. there is that Eagle am working on right now….

That is one fantastic looking model Trekmodeler. I am curious about one thing though....How high did you raise the bridge? It looks awfully high.

Thanks for the comments guys! Martin, the bridge was raised about 1/8 of an inch using strip styrene. The height is necessary for the proper flood on the hull numbers.
