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!
If you saw my Eaglemoss Enterprise D Windows mod page, you know I have been sanding all of the saucer windows down to be more flush with the hull plating.
I was trying to put a ‘group buy’ together to get this little metal creation of mine into other builder’s hands. However, my CNC shop did not get back to me about it. I decided it would be even better just to publish my 3D files to everyone. With these, you should be able to find a local CNC/Waterjet shop to have these made locally.
