Starship Modeler Starfighter Contest Entry


By Joe Huddleston

There are no major changes to this model other than possibly the lighting. I had read of several methods but decided that I wanted the option of turning it on and off. I decided to put a red "bright" LED in the control panel of the cockpit. I sourced the Blue LEDs from Radio Shack and used 5 volt incandecant light bulbs for the reverse thrusters.

I made few other modifications besides boring out the six guns and placing LEDs in them and adding fiber optics to blinking LEDs for "action effect" in the cockpit. I want to thank Jim Davis for his advise with getting the "weathering" effect. His web article was excellent on that subject.
