All the windows cut out on the upper and lower saucer sections HOOOOORAAAAAGH!!!!
The detail on upper section around the bridge is far too thick and needs removing and replacing with photo etch detailing. Same goes for the Captains ready room and Briefing room either side of the bridge.

Removal of upper hull detail.






Ready and Briefing rooms.

Thanks Buck.

Alot of aftermarket improvements going on the Voyager and I have fitted the Auxiliary Navigation Deflector (also have the main Deflector) in blue resin. The kit parts are clear. The studio model allows both of these to light but hardly anyone bothers to light the auxiliary (small) one. I think this misses an opportunity to include a great feature as when lit it illuminates (passively) the deflector array in front, which looks brilliant.





Another small detail relating to the sensors array pallets requires work. The instruction suggest that the colour details should be painted in, however the studio model shows a very tiny amount of illumination so i have drilled and cut out the relevant sections and replaced with Micro Crystal Clear glue which obviously dries clear, and painted it with transparent colours, which allows a small degree of light to filter through.






Very roughly put the metallic areas in for effect.

Its far from my comfort zone Buck, but I couldn't say no when my friend asked me to build it. To be honest Im enjoying it apart from the windows.

This looks great with all the work on the lighting. I'm like Buck, a car guy, but am enjoying watching this come together.

Keep it up. I am sure it will be awesome in the dark, all lit up with the different lights!!

There are windows missing from the bridge deck which I have put in. Also making a start on the photo etch brass details.

I never ever considered the amount of work you would be doing on this Gary. You are in the process of turning out another museum quality piece my friend.

I am amazed by this build. I am going to be looking for one of these kits at shows I go to, Not my genre of models but the Grand Kids will love it. Thanks for the Build.

Gary, looking really good. I like all the lighting and the photo etch details. Like Buck, this is not the type of kit I do, but I love the Star Trek series!! Keep it coming.

Wow, this is looking interesting. There seems to be a lot more delicate detailing needed on this especially with regards to the windows than I would have thought. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
Great work!!

Drilled the windows on the upper bridge deck in the wrong place so some filling and sanding practice.





I didn't like the light effect on the sensor array so Ive blocked it out with primer so I can re-do it.



Got some paint on the small deflector. There is ribbing detail missing in a couple of places so I need some 1mm half round profile styrene rod so I can put that in.

Put the missing ribs on the photo etch bridge window with 0.30mm styrene. All the large windows have this detail missing.
