Happy New Year and all that.:)
As a challenge I volunteered to build and paint a model of the K7 Space station from the Star Trek episode The trouble with Tribbles for an upcoming game of Attack Wing at my local game store. I am not playing in this game but thought it would be fun for the guys to have a model that better represents the station than the DS9 model. It was interesting to build as I decided to light it using a lighting kit from Power play I had from a previous NOVA Open. I had to reorder the instructions to allow wiring and I ran into a problem with the length of the wires themselves, but I came up with a solution that worked. I hope the guys like it on Tuesday. I also had to paint each part separately before assembling. I started the kit Friday evening and finished it at 1 AM Sunday morning.

|Plastic rods helped make the lights better.|
|My solution to the short cables|
|Battery hidden under base|
|Decals in place. Just need a few more coats of Micro Sol.|
|my painting choice for the cones forced me to put the section labels in different locations|
|Ready to go|
|Kind of sneaks up on you|
Not bad for a day and a half.
Till Next time
