Iíve been steadily at it working on the Enterprise. There is an arboretum that can be seen through the hull and Iíve put in a bunch of tiny bushes and flowering trees. (Looks like the gardener has been on vacation for a while! )

Iíve also been working on installing a shit ton of tiny windows and doing modifications to accommodate the electronics. Iím using magnetic winding wire that is about the size of a human hair and realizing I canít see shit.

But Iíve got the neck pretty much wired up. I put a conduit in there to make it easier to run the bundle of wires through it later (thatís the tube in the neck photo. You can see there is a lot of stuff in there to get in the way.) the red lights are photon torpedo launchers.

One thing that is very cool is the teeny tiny SMD LEDs. Super bright, the light up the dish and registry number (NCC-1701) on the top and bottom of the saucer. Thatís a bandaid on my thumb. Jammed an Xacto knife into it.

Iíve spent a ton of time just soldering resistors to LEDs with leads. So many tiny LEDs...

More to come!
