Re: WIP - USS Enterprise: the R-Protocol

Kaiser, thanx!

Publishr - I've used Scotchlite, both for the windows on my 1/350 E buildup and for the interior "lighting" on my Jupiter II. It's probably do-able to make large scale applications on something as large as an Enterprise model, but haven't tackled anything like that yet. Going by what those Scotchlite sheets on the linked website you posted, these will likely cost more than painting, but you would get some benefit making the model self-illuminating to a degree. The one obstacle is that you would have to seal the decals once applied and my experience is that acrylic enamel clearcoats dull the reflectivity. I had to mask all the windows on my Enterprise to prevent this and handpaint Future over all to seal them. Maybe airbrushed coats of Future would work.

No progress, other than pulling parts out of the box, wishing for a little spare time to work on it, then going back to the workbench to finish some paying projects.
