|A silvery green finish with irregular dark markings gives the deck an eerie alien look. NOTE the four LEDs that light the deck |
area. Each is set in a half-round support with a silver metal lining that acts as a reflector & directs the LED's light toward the
center of the deck. ALSO note the three LEDs set into the centers of the control console bases. Each of these LEDs has a
silver backing to direct its light into the control panel on the front of each console.
|FLIGHT DECK just before the seats were installed. NOTE the highly detailed control panel on the pilot's console.|
|CLOSEUP view of the |
pilot's control console.
The radar screen area of
the control panel is lit by a
white 5mm LED and
flashes / blinks.
|THE FINISHED UFO with its see-through 'windows' and odd blue panel. Note the clear 'window' panels. It took several hours |
just to mask these so the hull could be spray painted (inside & outside).
|ENGINES - 16 LEDs set around the underside of the model provide the main lighting effect. These flash & chase around in |
automatically changing patterns.
