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!

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.
