Knocking back up to the first page after seeing the imgur post and Holy crap is that really a USS voyager engineering section bit of hull there? Did they use that in the original?
Yes they kit-bashed a lot of Star Trek Voyager models, namely Voyager, Kurzon and Marquis ships. Members of RPF spotted them first I believe.Knocking back up to the first page after seeing the imgur post and Holy crap is that really a USS voyager engineering section bit of hull there?

Cabling is much neater and goes through respective grommets...

..it doesn’t look like much but they are 4mm wide steel gears. Absolutely no chance of stripping themselves and no play whatsoever. You really don’t wanna get your fingers caught in that!
A quick walk around..

One of the last jobs is to secure the scope lid properly, probably with magnets and pins to allow access if necessary. I also want to program a scope only raise, as well as a scope and top bay raise, using the length the user holds down the trigger as the variable.
