Here is my entry for this year!



I will build those two tartan cruisers and add the lightning in them!

The base will be a town. :)

Thanks guys!

Little update:
I cleaned the part and start to remove the little gaps in the reactors area.

I also started to create a base adding a tiny 1:2256e Blockade Runner! ;D

I have been quiet on that subject, but still have made some moves!
It will be hard to end this project in time, hope I will make it!

I have made some detailling on the landing zone and on the cities parts.
Created the base and also have tested the LEDs and way to hold the cruisers.

Here are some pics:

here is where I am:

Gluing the leds in the engine rear part:





I added some plastic card to creat a support to glue the leds:



During the drilling process, I lost a reactor in the vacum cleaner... So I created a new one:



Leds glued:



I'm using a beard cutter as power supply, 7.5V, 1200mA!



And the steps before closing the ships! One ship is already closed!

Here are my last moves on that project:

Primed and paint the ships (flat black then medium sea grey)

Add some details at the base

Start the painting of some of the buildings.
