My Revell Razor Crest build, it got here sooo fast....

I got this kit faster then I had planed, seemed no one in the states had it yet or were not going to carry it, Cultvman got a small number of kit but I was too late to take advantage of the offer. I got this kit from a U.K. seller on e-bay at a great price with very fast shipping included, not bad...

Had some time while I waited for the epoxy to set on my Comlock build so I thought I'd start looking at the kit and lay out a plan for inputing power to run the effects and charge the battery, I hope anyone who might be building this kit finds this post useful. I did have to reshape the coil slightly in order to fit, but if you're careful it will work....;)

Well, now that the Comlocks are done it's time to get back to the Razor Crest..... So far it's been a fun build and the texture on the outer hull does not bother me. I used my favorite LED for engine effects, NeoPixels, love them, there is so much you can do with them when it comes to lighting effects. I do wish the parts for the engine thrusters were done with lighting in mind, almost everyone lights their builds, engines are a no-brainier....:rolleyes:

Wow! I love the engine effect. This build may be my first venture with neopixels and an Arduino.
Thank you modelerdave..... You're going to love what you can do with NeoPixels, the possibilities are endless, have fun with them and be sure to post your work......(y)

I used to work with several electrical engineers. If I had a dollar for every time I heard them say 'Arduino', I could retire. ;)

Great work, so far.
