OUTSTANDING ! I like how you mixed up the colors and didnt stick to a basic white light source. The drill point positions are spaced very nice n straight :thumbsup Thats what I love about OT models is that your able to see all the so called "guts" exposed which were sadly lacking in the newer episodes. Gorgeous :salut

Thanks man. Yes I tipped a select few of the cool white fibers with a transparent red paint made by Tamiya. Worked like a charm. Cool white is like normal incandescent lighting and not bluish like most white LEDs. That makes a huge difference with OT style models.

That's something for the old-school people. That's pure original Star Wars. Think it was retouched/removed in the SE versions.

When the tractor beam is engaged, it is extended. It retracts when not in use.

That shot of it lit is killer.
May I suggest a stand with a gloss black acrylic base and clear acrylic rods or struts for support. Would have that old school futuristic vibe.

Love it!
