Very cool build, my only minor gripes are :the lights on top of the saucer are rather large and stick out, and the window lights are way too bright, I can Imagine the crew squinting all over inside her...but still, a great model, way better than I could do..

You know, I've had the same complaint about some other builds. Steve Neil, for example, who is a professional model builder with experience dealing with movie and television studios, frequently turns in projects with what I'd consider to be over-bright lights. He explains that his cameras tend to over-expose, rendering his lighting effects much brighter than they are in person.

It's possible that secretreeve's Voyager doesn't look so bright in real life.

Re: USS Voyager Revell model with custom lighting

nah they're pretty "in scale" as far as brightness goes.

can't disagree with the size of the leds though, if i ever do another one i'll be using fiber optics instead.

digital cameras don't handle dark and very bright at the same time well.

Yeah, unless you can actually pull off a composite image like they do when filming lit miniatures there's no way you are going to be able to film it accurately.
