Not really a proper update on the build itself but I did get my circuit board from Ant through which he has set up to match the strobe and flashing lights seen in the movie.
Ant has recently produced his V2 LED Driver (http://www.antsnest.net/blog/) and I thought of this when trying to work out how to do the double strobe flash on the kit. So got in touch and Ant pulled together an amazing job of fixing not only the double strobe but also the single pulse lights which are seen on the bridge and by the shuttle bay.
So one of the small omissions on the Revell kit is that there are a string of lights along the raised area behind the bridge. You can see these in the image below.
For some reason Revell didn’t do these ones as windows and instead just moulded the shapes onto the parts. As I’m lighting it I need to cut these out. So using a 1mm drill I chain drilled along the windows and then cut through them with a scalpel.
