Hi all-

got some paint on. Now I’ve got to fill in all of the details- lots of wire harnesses, components, and black boxes in every open portion of the ceiling..plus the fast-rope and crew seat supports..and all the other “stuff”

Looks a little rough right now- the camera is brutal- but I’ve got a vision! Stick with me :)

thanks for for checking in 

 

cheers

Hello all!

the slow scratch building march begins!

just have to go void by void- the cable ties are just strips of decal that go on after the harness section is in place, then a wash- you can see the difference as I plod along.

Still plodding!

the fat wire harness sections are simply picture wire cut to length and painted white. The smaller sections of harness were made with Timmy’s! Super awesome technique..folding over lengths of beading wire, twist and cut, then apply some of this nifty rubberized super glue. I use a micro brush to apply it then wick off the excess. It’s cool because your harness is now bendy but won’t come apart. Paint it up and yer good!! Thanks Timmy! 

 

Cheers

Your work is splendid.  Besides all of that wonderful detail, love that weathering.

 

'the cable ties are just strips of decal'

Nice transfer of knowledge.

 

'the fat wire harness sections are simply picture wire'

Great tip, thank you.

 

"Timmy’s! Super awesome technique'

Thank you, both.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

 Hello all!

slow grind on this, but am chipping away at it! Might not look like much progress, but I have spent waaaayyy more time looking at obscure reference photos of the ceiling, (most shot at weird angles) than I have building components.. more to follow!

Thanks for all the words of encouragement!!
