I just picked up a Reliant kit, and want to try my hand at lighting it. Seeing as how this is will be my first attempt at lighting a model (though not my first time with electronics by far), I think I'll avoid the fiberoptics necessary to do the windows, and instead only do major light sources- shuttle bays, sensor dome, engines, running lights, etc.
A while back I saw a website with pictures and info about a Trek model (may have been a E-D or even a Reliant) on which the builder used Scotchlite to simulate internal window lights... From what I remember, the effect looked REALLY good, and I figure that this would work well with my "basic" lighting. [img]images/smiles//icon_smile.gif[/img]
I've looked and looked but can't find the page- can anyone help me out? Or if any of you guys have tips/suggestions for using scotchlite that would be great!
