    Nice build. I agree as well, tired of seeing red Ferrari's all the time! Yours looks really sharp.
    Loved these kits from back in the day. I built all of the Monogram versions, 308, Countach, etc. Never realized the Monogram kit was re-boxed under the Revel name. I built the 308 Racer version of this kit a year or so ago. Of all the 308 kits out there Monogram/Revel really nailed the body on these better than the others.
    Ooops- Just noticed this thread was started 5 years ago!!!

    Thanks for all the comments guys, appreciate it!
    A few more lighting tests. Starting to look good! Also, a picture on how I did the engine lights.



    Engine lights. Tamiya paint cap, 12 LEDs in total. It has 8 flickering blues and 4 steady whites in the center.

    She's almost ready for paint!

    Next project moving on to the bench after the Big G is done will be the Moebius 18 inch Jupiter 2 kit. I picked up this sealed kit at our last club meeting for $40. What can I say? I like BIG models!

    Thanks! I did a quick lighting test this morning using a flashlight shinning on the fibers, Whoo-Hoo it's going to look great! But didn't have time to upload the pics. before heading to work. I'll post them tonight.

    All the fiber work is done. 300+ windows. Both .5mm and .25mm fiber was used. Fibers are all bundled up and trimmed. Now to install the electronics!!


    Bridge with .25mm fiber.




    Mike's replacement launch tubes in place. Much better than stock.

    Got some more work done on the Big Girl. Starting to run fibers in the head. Got the gap under the bridge squared away with Aves epoxy. More fibers to run and then even more fibers to run!!!

    Nice job so far. Didn't realize a kit existed of this yet.

    I was just thinking about this kit this morning! Nice to see someone working on it. I don't think the kit is that old, maybe mid to late 90's. Looking forward to the rest of your build.

    This is a resin kit made by Mike Salzo. You can find him on FB and scifi forums like the RPF. Drilled about 150 holes for fiber the other day. Still need to drill another 200 or so. The ship will be lit with .5mm fiber optics.


    Picture taken at last weekends meeting of the Kentucky Modelers group. It was a big hit to mostly car modelers!

    I'll post some more pics after work today. Spent last evening drilling windows. The windows are .5mm for fiber optics to light them. I got the port side done and part of the top, drilled about 150 windows, still need to do about another 200. I'll then start running the .5mm fiber optics.
