Just A Few More Bits And Bobs As it Were...
Twice in a day would you believe!
Well in order not to bore you silly, here's the skinny gang.
Forward spotlights simply done with some 12mm (about 1/2") plastic tube cut and shaped then glued into position and the hold it there/light bleed stop gunk liberally applied.
The two 5mm mega bright white LED's attached to a rough circle of 1mm thick plasticard.
This glued in and wired up to the spare leads left from the panel lighting wire run.
Hooked up to a battery for testing.
A slight change of plan to the top fuselage hull interior.
Decided to use the same ribbed plasticard and a spare hatch wheel.
Fixed in and a coat of stone liberally airbrushed on.
Once the paint had done it's work, time for some extra stuff to be a slapped on.
Some drybrush doodad action and a dollop of silver with some tape and pencil lark to give the suggestion of a hatch.
At the angle this sits at and for viewing purposes, this is about all that's needed.
So bits and pieces like the fire extinguisher, rear hatch wheel and ladder all added and in position, then ceiling plates all added in.
LED setup and EL inverter all wired up to a small chunk of veroboard gunk glued to the rear interior bulkhead.
So then, just time enough for a quick lighting test methinks...
Just slapped some black paper on top and got to it with the camera so nothing that special.
Not so bad all in all, still an opportunity to add more lighting if the client deems in necessary so no harm, no foul.
Well gang that's about it for now.
Some fiddling about and a full test of battery life when it's all hooked up and running and of course the crew figures to arrive so when they do...
Another update should occur shortly thereafter.
With any luck.
Until such a time is upon me and then yourselves, you lot take good care and go easy now.
