    Started working on the main hold interior.

    rebuilt the ring to be a bit more at the proper scale and also be a bit more accurate to the set design. Built up the ring edge with a couple styrene strips to give it some more depth and detail then added a bunch of I-Beams for the support details, feels more accurate to the detail scale of the actual set than the supplied piece which was too bulky and thick looking.

    Also started cutting out some recesses in wall to add more accurate detailing and depth.

    Added in the padding and gave the wall a coat of the metalizer paint and started selectively buffing areas to get more metalic highlights while leaving the corners un buffed for a nice grime build up look.

    Started playing around with lighting just for fun, taking a few LEDs and just having fun with liighting designs, not very falcon looking, but cool and fun non the less! Fun playing with Light and shadow, can't wait to get all the Fiber Optic and LED lighting hooked up!

    Ktaytor, very precise and fine build skills there!

    Are you going to put small wires inside those Ring Edges?

    In the studio set there are wires there? Or are you leaving this as is.

    Thanks!
    Yeah I'm going to figure out something that will look good at scale, unfortunately I didn't drill holes in each of the I-beams to pass wires though so I have 2 options make wires and cut them into little 1/8 segments and glue them in between the beams..... or.....rip them out and re-do it.....gonna test the first option out and see if it looks okay or not, I can see it working if I do it right, basically make one big clump of wires and glue them all up then cut that up into little pieces and fit each segment between each space so all the braid, color pattern looks contiguous.

    I was over anxious to see how it looked and completely ignored this obvious design problem, I get like that, from time to time :>

    Thanks CRphoto! It's definatley a new addiction for sure, I usually do computer modeling so actually doing practical modeling is a really fun departure from that world but with the same goals and familiarity, cant wait till I can just 3d print stuff at my desk!! soooooooooon!!!!

    Worked a bit more on the interior, built out some detail on the wall behind the nav computer the part came as just a flat wall with nothing on it, so cut a little window out for some of the recessed detail and added all the styrene trim detail, tried to be as accurate as I could with the set but this wall is proportionally shorter than the actual set wall was so I could only cram so much of it on there. Hit it with some Titanium Metalizer righ out of the rattle can, buffed some areas left parts intentionally matt for residue build up look, and then just put a quick black wash over it. Will come back and add some more subtle color work to help unify it all together once all the walls are up and I can hit it all at once. There is an overhang panel that comes down from the top of this wall that the hose goes up into but going to wait until I have it in the final model so I can see how much room is up there before adding it or any other ceiling level details.

    Also started on the floor grating, just took some photo etch and glued it down, considered replacing the enitre floor but there are big holes for screws in the bottom for attaching this to the ship that I didnt want to loose or have to reproduce. cut out the access panels and added some trim. Going to continue to build out the pit there with as much detail/lighting as I can fit down there, kinda need to see how it attaches to the ship first to know how much room ill have for any sub-flooring.

    Used Tony's 3d prints from Shapeways for the grill covers, they are very nice and crisply detailed, as much as the PE which is amazing for 3d printing at this scale...
    http://www.shapeways.com/product/6S8...ionId=55988259

    Trying to do as much scratch build as I can but wasnt up to teh challenge for that pattern in the grill covers, big thanks to Tony for designing such a great and accurate part!

    Trying to decide how to do the paneling around the grates now, its kinda tricky to get looking right at this scale, I don't want to just float styrene strips on top of the flooring unless I can find some thin enough to not look like big bulky strips glued down...anyone know of a place that does custom PE I could just design them as one big overlay and the PE is thin enough to not mess the scale up, that hatch trim is a bit too thick at the moment, gonna take a flat sanding block and take them down just a bit!

    Got some base paint on the flooring, ended up building up the front part as well so it would be sligtly higher than the layered on PE grating. Painted it with various shades of metalizers and buffed them down. Added a pretty heavy black wash and mottled it with a q-tip to get some of the grime looking effects. So far so good, need to clean up some of the glue seep though, or paint it up to look like grime build up or something plan on adding some of the pit to the uncovered hatch, need to see how much clearance there is with the bottom of the ship hull, I want to extend the front of the room as well but again not sure how much space inside the model there is, I need to check the BP and see.

    Great work, loving the panels on the docking ports, could you kindly let us know the mesurements of the square rod and half circle rod you used to add the ribs on the panels and the ribs on the extra detailing? Keep us updated as the falcon threads are getting very interesting

    Built up some beefier pipes for the back wall (.5" plastic styrene tubing) going to drill out holes in the walls and feed them though.

    Detailed out the area around the game table and bunk, should look cool, once I get it attached to the floor/wall I will add a few more pipes around it to help seat it into the area better.

    Thanks for prompt reply Kris, these were the parts I had in mind, the ribs on the extra detailing (are they half rounds) and the square rod for the ribs on the hull plates above, I assume backed onto the 0.2 like the plating (sorry to be a Pain, just been measuring up and really struggling to find just the right look and yours from the pics look spot on

    thanks

    Oh okay yeah ( I know what you mean it took several trips so the hobby store to find the right ones!) You are correct the plating is .2 and those are half rounds on the detailing with the hole in it. I will have to check tonight when I get home and see what the sizes are. ( although I did hear that the kit in the Japanese release has this issue of the side hull plating resolved so we MAY be getting those pieces as updates in the future not sure-but wanted to make sure you heard about that. I also noitced that the bottom piece that matches this top pieces the issue has been resolved and looks great, so they can definatley mold and cast these pieces correctly now, sooo fingers crossed that they re issue the original top piece!

    If you scroll down you can see the hull plating on the new bottom piece, looks great!

    Started on some of the hallway panels, scratch built some panel/instrument detail into the corner piece, added some test Fiber in, gonna paint these with some glass paint once I get the final optics installed, lots of fun working on all the hallway stuff!

    Did some lighting for the bunk, added a fiber light into the back of it, and scratch built the little double ended tube light that attaches over the seats, using a small SMD light for it, the thin styrene works great as a light diffuser!

    gonna add some small red optics lights to the side where all the wires/detailing was added, then some small optic lights around the back of the cushions where all the control stuff is next, then finally optics for the chess table and this little area should be done!-

    Here is a prototype for the corridor floor lighting I want to do, using a strip of EL tape, will cut it down the middle for final result and use the one EL strand of tape for both sides! gonna scratch build the floor ontop of the EL tape, prolly use the manufactured floor to build right on top of since it screws into the hall really well, its really thick so plent of room to sand the top down so my new floor I build ontop will be the same height as supplied part. Really excited about this part!
