Star Trek Barbie: Almost Completed

Rate this Entry
I spent two days putting 60 lights in the warp nacelles but just as I finished a short or something else occurred and the lights failed. On two other separate circuits, the lights in the primary and secondary hull remain working.

Going to do another build of the 33 inch model, this time using cathode tubes to light the nacelles.

It is pity that the nacelles' electronics failed, as the lighting effect was fantastic.

Later on this week I'll start painting the model.

    The model is Polar Lights.

    All the lighting is my my own work, not from a kit.

    Short of buying a new kit and using just the new nacelles to repair the broken ones, I cannot fix the nacelles. The lights are impossible to remove once in place.

    That would be a $110 fix, so I'll just start over -- learned lots so my next build will be better.
