    Hi everyone

    this is my first submission to the RPC - I've been a long time watcher but had to wait until I had something to show you

    This is my Revell Venator that has taken me 15 months to build. There are about 46 LED's inside and I used about 20 feet of Fiber Optic cable

    There are issues with it - the LEDs in the main windows are to bright and the wrong color. Unfortunately, they were only picked up after the superstructure and hulls were joined. However, they are mistakes I can lilve with.

    There are about 525 photos in my Photobucket account if you want to see the progress from start to finish

    Thanks for looking and I hope to see you again soon with something else

    Unbelievable. Seriously one of the best paintjobs I've ever seen on a kit that size. Your use of washes it spot on! Thanks for posting this!

    Very nice. You should install some lenses for the engines so they don't have the 'flashlight effects'. Thats what i do on all my builds.

    Get some poly tubes and shape them. It eliminates the light on the side.

    MH,

    Most excellent finish to a lengthy build.

    As I have said numerous times to you mate, I hope my build ends up looking even half as good as yours !!

    Taking a break now or, are you starting another build ?

    Cheers mate,

    Dave.

    Very nice. I've always been jealous of people who have the patience to light kits and it really paid off for you.

    thanks fellas - your feedback is greatly appreciated

    Ronan, when you mention Polytubes - what exactly do you mean by those? Are you referring to the normal styrene tubes or is it something else altogether? I'm interested to know what you mean as I may well follow your advice (if practical)

    Thanks again guys

    See you soon

    MH
