Beautiful job there. I like the stand you built. What did you use for that?
That would appear to be the Spacedock stand from the Polar Lights 1/350 refit model.
Yes I swapped the dome stand out for the refit stand and added the spotlights at the corners. The stand has three switches for model lights, spotlights, and nacelle motors. I also upgraded the 12V 850mA supply from the lighting kit to a 2A power supply so there's plenty of juice to run everything at once.

Re: The Grey Lady-TOS Enterprise-1/350 Scale

Here are a couple of top and bottom pics. These were taken in bright sunlight and illustrate how bright light washes out the weathering:

Re: The Grey Lady-TOS Enterprise-1/350 Scale

As one who barely has the proper patience and manual dexterity to paint a model, let alone get one looking like that, I'm constantly in awe of folks like yourself and Forbin. Fantastic work!

The sunlight shots are particularly interesting, in how they show off the weathering. I know some people don't like weathering, but I think you've got it just right.
