Hello,
 
I have added some more parts and details on the lower part of the hull... the area around the engine is nearly finished ...

For the illimination of the engine I have used the kits part (a box light part which is mounted behind the grille). I have removed the back of the boxand painted the rest in black. Then I have glued the clear resin parts at the backside of the frame (rest of the "box").
The box I have extended on the backside with plastic sheed about 1cm, parallel to the backside of the box. Then I have glued the blue LED-stripe on a plastic stripe in the high of the box. painted this and the extension in silver. The stripe with the LEDs Ihave glued on the backside of the box as back panel.
I have used Tape to fix the back wall better and to close all remaining gaps. Then I have glued Aluminium foil with super glue all around the new "lightbox", the wires leaving the box on the side and will go through the hull later.
 
That's how it looks like ...

Misha,

 

This is fantastic!  I just found your build but the detail work is really something.  I have to say, the light is perfect for that engine and your description of the build is informative - thanks.  Looking forward to more of your work.  Keep it up!  

Chris

Hello.
 
all the kits parts of the underside of the hull are mounted and the holes for all the LED lamps drilled inside the hull.
 
I have installed the wiring and the LED for testing ....  lot of wires (without the LEDs for the engine). Next I will make the base and the stand which will include the wires then.

Some nice small figures are included with the kit, it is even possible to recognize the persons.... I will install Han Solo the captain, Chewbacca and on the seats behind C3P0 and Luke Skywalker.

Hello,
 
after having added all parts as far as necessary I have sprayed the inside of upper and lower hull in black before gluing the LEDs in the holws with white glue.
 
Around every LED I have added a piece of plastic pipe which was glued in place and filled with white glue from the top side...  Then the lightbox for the engine was installed...
 
... and all wires put together.... finally, there will be four wires going out from a hole in the center of the bottom, inside the display stand...

Before having installed the lightbox, the rear side of the hull was painted already ...

Once all the glue was set I have painted also the plastic pipes and the filled white glue in black....
 
Now there is no chance for any light shining somewhere where it is not planned :) A testing and everything works as it should :) 
 
Also the LEDs for the cockpit were added now, the lower cockpit area glued to the lower part of the hull.

Once everything is finished in the inside of the hull the upper hull was put on top.... testing, some wires putting in place.... testing, some plastic removing from the lower side of the upper hull at the center of it .... testing ... fits.
The upper side was mounted on the lower one with scews... then the lights tested again ... works. :) 
 
After that I have added all the  side panels full of added details and the upper part of the cockpit. The docking ports left and right were replaced with 3D-printed parts, painted also black from the inside.
Also the radar on the top and the engine nozzles were 3D-printed parts with correct size and better details. The engine will receive some etched grills later after the primering.

With the Dremel I have added some damages as it is seen in several pictures of the movie ... some holes on the upper side nect to the radar, some scratches on the lower side.... 
 
Now everything is ready for some first primering :) 
 
Cheers
