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.
The board itself is really tiny (36mm by 20mm) and so will fit easily inside the model and can be hidden away in the saucer. It can be set to run 5 different sequences I believe, so has a lot of flexibility to run different lights within the same model.
So I pointed Ant at the video of lights flashing and he synced up the circuit to match them exactly. The video below isn’t the final version (it was tweaked a tiny bit after that) but shows the flashing that this will drive.
So just need to solder up the wires to run the LEDs and this element will be all sorted.
