Thanks for the comments guys, very much appreciated.

Carl, I found the graphics on line. Paid for the licence, then had it printed on acrylic board.

Okay, so this must be the smallest PE, I’ve ever done so far.Crying The size of the bridge itself is smaller than a five pence piece sitting on a base that fits into the top saucer section. There are about 15 PR parts to fit, the smallest are the size of a pin head, the seats, which need to be bent in place.
Once fitted together, I primed the part before painting.
The last few pictures show the part temporarily in place for a test fit. This will be lit, and you should just about see the whole bridge area when finished.
Now for the Shuttle bay, thank got that’s slightly bigger.Laugh

Mark, there is a rather stunning set of transparencies for the various view screens. See here;

Thanks Mark.
I did have a look for some, but they don’t do them for the 1/600 scale, must be to small to produce.

Cheers

A few more electronics done on this build. I have started building the Bussard lighting. First, was to solder a resistor to each orange LED on the positive terminal. Next, was to make eight 3mm holes into an internal circular part of the kit where the LED’s will be inserted. These were glued into place with the negative terminals facing towards the centre where they were then soldered together after bending them in place. Using a rainbow ribbon cable, the different colours were soldered in sequence to the positive terminals, whilst the black cable was then soldered to the negative centre terminals. The other ends of the cable will eventually be attached to the mother board so the lights with flash in a circular motion giving the appearance of movement.

More soon.

Many thanks Alan, your comments always appreciated.BigGrin

Doesn’t look like a lot done, but I have been test fitting and working out how and where the electronics will be fitted. After some dodgy kits recently, it was nice to have a kit that fits correctly. Last two days I have been contemplating how it all comes together and at what stages I put the electronics in and when to start the painting. Anyway, I am getting there. Here are a few pictures with the Bussard lighting in place and some priming to the hull has been done. I have also experimented with the internal saucer lighting and how it will light up the bridge.

Loving the build so far. I am generally no use whatsoever at electronics, so will be watching this intently from now on.

However, I do have one question.

Wasn't the Enterprise of Kirk's era a Constitution class starship?
