I was recently asked if I could share the window lighting pattern I have been using on my Enterprise D build to match the 4-foot studio model. As I originally created them on paper, I needed to convert them to a easily consumable digital version. I hope I was successful in creating this GUIDE for you all!
In Part Five of my Enterprise D Model Remodel journey, we complete the electronics and lighting of the Saucer section. This includes adding custom light circuits, attaching our electronics to custom 3D-printed mounts, and finishing up the rest of the wiring. I also added another Arduino page about how to add sounds/music to our project!
In Part Four of my Enterprise D Model Remodel adventure, we fully modify the Battle Section Neck and I share more information about using Arduino including Custom Functions, Booleans, Dimming LEDs, and how to switch high currents. I also included a third Lighting Test video which shows some new features I have added as well as a sneak preview of the mobile app I have been working on!
I was disappointed with the stock lighting of my FDNY Tower Ladder 9 fire truck, so I have been doing my own thing. Using the great components from Light My Bricks, I have been heavily modifying the lighting throughout the build. Of course, I have been documenting the progress and am sharing it with you all!
Part Three of my Model Remodel series of articles is now available for the Eaglemoss 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork build. This part includes learning about using LEDs, resistors, and a bunch of Arduino pages. I delve into creating our first sketch, first circuit, using variables and if/else statements, as well as adding event timing and infrared remote control!
Part Two of my Model Remodel series of articles is now available for the Eaglemoss 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork build. This part includes my modifications to the Bridge/Deck Two windows, a new Beacon Light, re-lighting the Warp Nacelles, and reassembly of the upper saucer while eliminating light leaks!
The time has finally come in my Eaglemoss 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork adventure for some serious modifications. To document this, I have created a new Model Remodel series of articles around my journey to add more details, realism, and accuracy to my model. Fair warning though, I am going crazy with this one – including everything from resin windows to new lighting and sound effects!
Part One containing my modifications to the reflectors and creating UV resin windows is now available!
