Simply WOW! :jawdrop:

Man C75, you have hit this one OUT OF THE FRACKIN PARK - COMPLETELY OVER THE GREEN MONSTER! :buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock:

The incredible decal set and your excelent work just makes this one a museum quality work my friend.
My only carp is the switch for the electoinics on the bottom of the ship - thought this might be better on the base.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get some of these pictures and e-mail them to FINE SCALE MODELER and SCI-FI MODELER magazines. I know they will publish them. Might even make an article out of them.

Outstanding Work my Cylon Brother. :thumbsup:

I would have to run the wires down the tube and back up and that would have not worked so well. I figured that this was the next best option How ever i wish i could of found a smaller switch.Plus its on the bottom so it wont be seen that well.

C75,
Did you ever think of useing a slide-switch? If the hull would allow it you could mount it inside the hull and the switch could be made flush with the outside and only a small hold for the switch on the underside. Another option would be a pressure-swittch - this could be mounted inside the hull and accessed by a nail, allen wrench or something small fit through a small hole in the hull to activate the switch.

Just a thought. These are easily available in many small sizes.

Yea i looked at a lot of options but went with the easiest to install( my solder skills really suck) i figured that i was on the bottom and wouldn't see it any way for the most part.
