All the holes are filled and it's primed
I cut out that navigation hatch panel for interior access
15 fins on the fusion core had to be re glued from too much handling!
Gary Oldman? What the...? Wrong show pal.
New (bright) warm white LEDs added to the chaser circuit board
These are about 4 times brighter than the incandescent lamps
Silver paint applied
followed by a coat of clear matte finish.
I added some pseudo landing gear to give it some depth
I also glued down the fusion core
Painted and lit
This completes phase one. Done, for now...
