Tie-Fighter

An impressive wee kit with well fitting parts. Requires carefull forethought before assemble or painting is impossible! I used pearlescent blue/green over black for the solar panels. You'll have to make a jig to get the panels to glue up square.

There is no free space inside for proper lighting, so I solved the problem with fluorescent paint and an overhead u.v. l.e.d..

Here it is glued into place. Note the pre-masked top window.

The complete cockpit, an impressive 3.7cm wide inside!

The power is transferred to the l.e.d. through two of the three pins.

The l.e.d. is shown here wired to two of the three pins.

Spectacular!

It's really difficult to show off the instrument panels by photographing in near darkness with u.v. light - trust me, they are quite effective.
