    Thanks guys for the compliments on the Hangar Bay!!!

    The hangar bay light are dimmed considerably. I have them dimmed to 25% on a 10 volt power supply. I put separate dimmers on the hangar bay, main lights and engines figuring they may be too bright. The main lights and hangar bay are dimmed to 25% while I have the engines running at 100% I can up the brightness at the show when the overhead lights are bright and dim back down to 25% when showing off in low light. That needs to be considered when lighting these ships.

    Lovely follow up photos Scott , thanks for sharing

    I’d like to know if possible please , the more ‘ prominent ‘ lighting as seen approximately midway down the side trenches in pic.#4 what did you use , and are they meant to resemble floodlights as seen on some film reference stills ?

    Hi Ged........Those are 0402 cool white micro SMDs

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/10PCS-Pre-S...8AAOSwqrtWneLx


    After I closed the hull up I seen pictures where I they should have been spread out in 3 or 4 spots along the trenches on both sides. Not so accurate but it looks alright. I was following along robiwan's Star Destroyer build and he had those 0402 SMDs in those 2 spots and I did the same. There was so much to do that slipped by. Some SD's have them and some don't. I can turn those lights off if I want to.

    A super cut clip of SDs from the various Star Wars movies. Some have the lighting and some don't. See 8:19 and you can see 4 or 5 accent or spot lights along the trench

    Hey there brother, it's been a week or two...what's next on the agenda for you? I've been putting pieces together for my Echo Base dio. Have you decided to take a break? My wife wishes I would, so I can work down her list of honey-dos, which I've pecked away at, but I still need my table time. Holler when you can, and don't forget to take a post pics of that show of yours that's coming up

    Hi Ross, the Noreastcon show is in 2 weeks April 27th & 28th. I will take some pictures of the show and post. I took a break since the finish of the SD and will resume after the show. Probably do a few small builds followed by another bigger lighted one..........

    Escape does some fantastic work, his NCC-1701 refit is incredible as well. Award winning builder, and I'm sure his ISD will be no different!
