Tricky wiring you say? ;)

Looks like Serenity had her guts blown out!


close up of the wires soldered in place and lovingly coated in epoxy to eliminate any chance of wires touching!


Now here is something I really wasn't expecting to do: One LED stopped working, so I had to dig it out and solder a new one in its place! I'm just happy that I didn't damage any wiring during this little adventure!

Thanks Igard!

I am so happy that part is out of the way! I was really worried that I would have fried the circuit card with an electrostatic shock when I cut it down! I had no easy way to test it until I had the wires connected!

But now I can concentrate on getting the rest of the ship finished (and the Delica!)

Wow Darph what a ton of work on that resin to get the engines to work. Can't believe I've missed most of this build.....don't know where I've been.

I can see those fraking Reepers hanging out all over that thing like filthy Klingons!

Serenity is just about ready to head into the black, so I've started on building a base for her,



An Ikea picture frame, a sheet of styrene, some paint and a tally plate from Qmx!

Amazing man! It was really enjoyable seeing you put this together.

Love those engine lights!!!

Shame about the Delica, but I'll be honest, I was here for Serenity. :)
