Hard to believe Gary, but I'm sure this will be your usual outstanding work.

Hi Gary,

I'm in on this one, especially with all the extras going on too her, she'll look stunning...

Do you have a drill press, should make drilling a heck of a lot easier...

My only advice is to run a level 3 diagnostic before lighting it.

After much diversion and considerable procrastination I have decided to crack on with my friends Voyager. Its not that I've been totally ignoring it as Ive sourced and bought a lot of stuff.

Decided to light the kit through a PCB with a remote control mains powered via a 12V DC transformer.




Cutting windows out continues.





Im lighting the impulse engines but cutting out isn't easy. Also started drilling out for the flashing anti-collision beacons.








Ive been kicking around ideas for a plinth base to contain the wiring and display the small shuttles etc.
Im going to backlight the logo's and text. (I Hope LOL)

Gary: It is looking great! Cutting out the windows may be driving you crazy, but when backlit believe me it's worth it. I knew you would be able to turn this into something exceptional.
