Thanks guys!

I picked up some of those paragraphix led strips. The spacing of the LEDS matched perfectly after a small adjustment for the one side. (I'll have to replace the other though since the holes don't line up enough to salvage)

I'm not sure about the brightness though. It seems like it would be blinding for the scale it's at. It's not too bad in dalylight like brightness, but in normal room brightness I think it's a bit too much. Any thoughts on how to diffuse it? Maybe add a bit of clear styrene that's been clouded over? Or maybe its really ok and just leave as is?
at any rate...outdoors in daylight

If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

I got most of the interior done and test lighted. I need to make a few tweaks and touch up some painting still. The hull isn't glued on yet, it is just dry fitted

It was hard to get pictures though because of the depth of field, but this was the best I could do. The other angles just turned out too bad, but at least these give a half decent view.

Thanks guys.

I managed to get some salvagable shots of the other angle. I have to get ths side of the boarding ramp glued on better and touch up the paint in the drilled holes. RIght now it is just taped in place so some light came through the top that shouldn't show. I also have to clean up the fiber optics for the cockpit and hide them better under the consule
