    Thanks for the compliments everyone, they are very appreciated.
    While Mike did a fantastic job on making this huge resin kit, I did make some improvements. Some areas were lacking in detail. The bridge, nose and two domes on the back just didn't match the level of detail the rest of the kit had. I talked to a designer on Shapeways (Tony aka 308bits) and asked if he would be interested in designing some replacement parts. He said yes and the first part made available was a new more accurate bridge. Other parts followed and are displayed on my build. Some of these parts I believe were also re-sized to be used on the smaller Moebius kit as well. Without Tony's help and Mike's wonderful kit I'd still be starring at my old crappy Monogram kit!
    Here is a link to the Shapeways parts.

    Thanks guys. I'm planning on doing just that, some outdoor at dusk pics, all lit up. I just need to get the fabric!
    That Enterprise will look just fantastic even if you don't light it.

    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!!!
