  1. I'll go into more detail about this in my thread, but for a first try, im ok with the flaws vs the over-all look. Some decal placement mistakes were made and I wish that I had put the decals onto a thin transparency to keep them flat. They sink into the dips of the control surfaces. Tomorrow when the glue dries I'll show you the top side of the roof so you can see how the micro leds integrate
  2. As requested here is another view of the flight deck light set up which I am still developing. First I painted everything flat black ( interior surfaces only so that I wouldn't have issues with tape sticking to the outside for wire management purposes ) then I painted it light gray, added a light gloss-coat for decal adhesion. I filled all the 'holes' with Testor's clear parts glue, then added translucent film as a backing to disperse the light evenly. I used 3v Micro led lights from Ebay. all and all there will probably be a total of 40 +/- lights on 3 circuits (BRIGHT WHITE cabin lights, WAR
  3. Those belly panels are looking awesome. Here's a peak of the flight deck on my build. Hopefully I can get the new string up and running soon and update it.
  4. K2 Pete, you are the hubble guy. It's an honor. I came across your build on a google search several months ago. Awesome. So check this out.... a few years ago, my mother in law brought me this box of documents. I will have to get the back story again, but basically the contents of the box is a massive amount of years of someones work on hubble. There is an incredible amount of data in here. Over-head transparencies, hand written notes, all kinds of stuff.
  5. Thank you. I am considering moving this over to the Real Space forum. When I set this up I didn't know what the heck I was doing.
  6. As I began to get deeper into the project, my brother surprised me with the Flight Deck set from Homer's spare parts. I had no intention of putting a flight deck in this thing, and also was going to build it with the bay doors shut. But, once I got the flight deck, I was blown away by the detail, and subsequently discovered these forums. I decided to go all-in and have the option of swinging the bay doors open. In the mean time I finally landed a win on Ebay and scored a Monogram stack that came with some older detail parts, many sheets of after market decals, and a spare Revel Orbiter.
  7. Hey there K2Pete, I am trying to figure out how all this works. It took me a while to figure out how to link to Flickr. I also can't seem to figure out how to post from my phone. When you say Real Space forum, is that thread affiliated with 'Real Space Models'.com ? I will try to master the art of multiple photos without posting some many times at once.
  8. Couldn't help it, had to start sawing as soon as I got home. Mind you, at this point I had no Idea what I was doing. I ordered the parts and began work long before I realized there was a build forum underway on here.
  9. Fuselage undergoing extensive filling and repair when the first parts arrived. Note the main gear strut still in place under the wing.
  10. Took this photo just after unboxing my first Shapeways order, the Beanie Cap, Beanie Cap base and RCS on orbit module from "Homers Spare Model Parts"
