Default Re: REL 1/350 Botany Bay

Really looking forward to your 1/350 build, this pairing is classic !! and you got a great start on it.. your brass work is cool....
and like so many.. I am not too excited about the panel lines..
Maybe they will re-issue with a smooth version in the future

I'm working on toning them down. You can see the difference here. A faint line only visible when light hits it right could look better than adding pencil lines later.

I see what you mean that would be easier than drawing them on.

About the fifth time I've done a dry-fit.

Spot putty and red filler paint. The spidery spots are from spotting only the lines instead of the whole surface. Live and learn, I guess.



Foil tape all around. Waiting for my light kit.



Really won't know how the light blocking went till I test the lights. Can't wait.

I don't know what gets in my head that I manage to miss threads like this!

Those grid lines are annoying, but what I really want to know is---what's up with that grainy texture on the upper saucer?

Maybe it was in case the builder wanted to do a vinyl top option?

Looks good!

Doing as much prep until my light kit arrives. Testing some LEDs to get an idea how many reflective bits I can add to mimic the mirror scraps in the studio model. There's a brass tube in the first pic I will attach stuff to. Also scuffed the dome layers to see if diffusing the bulb bits is needed. Might prefer some hot spots.

Default Re: REL 1/350 Botany Bay and PL Enterprise

It seems that puting something reflective in the middle only succeeds in blocking lights from the other side. Looks better without it IMHO.
