Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

It turns out that lighting a model with fibre optic is a very tedious process, so I got on with a few bits and pieces at the same time. 

So, here is the viper cockpit painted and done with all fibre in place. 

And here's the lighting test. 

You can't really see but the fibre ends have been tinted with inks. 

And while all that palaver was going on, I've been working on the Carnosaur which is about 80% done. 

Next up will be soldering the lighting circuit together for the viper so I can assemble it.

    1. Thank you kindly. The basic technique will look really cool in a warjack, dreadnought or any sort of diorama I think. But lordy me, it takes a while.

  2. My goodness you're a talented chap. Brilliant stuff and that dino is a nightmare.
