    Hello to all

    Here is a new project, it's the renovation of an SSD that I do for a collector.

    The first step was the complete disassembly and a bath of Glanzer to strip paint

    before bath

    Then I started to drill the holes for the fiber

    Welcome to the 1/2 mile of fiber club, looking really good!!
    I'm on the same build right now, I'm up to around 2000' & over 2500 fiber runs.

    That's a lot of fiber. And a lot of good work, nice refurb.

    Thanks to all for the encouragement

    I do not know how many holes I drilled, but I drilled a sacred numbers, I know that I used pretty 200/250 meter fiber

    Here is the result with the passage of fiber optic deck upper and lower, control station and motors

    Thanks Voodoocaster

    Edges for the job is not finished, I repair the missing parts by scratching pieces of styrene, the outline that I have realized is used as base to work.


    I feed the fibers with ribbon del, I made boxes inside the vessel, the fibers arrive in the box or is disposed del ribbon and diffuses the light.

    Really nice built.
    If i may ask and if you'd like to share your techniques,...how do/did you manage to cut the fiberstrands so cleanly and close to the surfaces of the model?
    I really like the paintjob,..could you share the choice of colours you used and did you aply a scale color system to it?
