A project built and contributed by Joshua Jackson
This Battlestar Galactica is from the original series and was very easy to build and fun to light.
To create this effect I used two different colored LED’s and two different diameters of fiber optic filament:
- 5 feet of 64 strand cable with the .25mm filament and
- 50 feet of .50mm single strand fiber optic filament
In the pics I have shown the drilled holes with the fiber optic filament run thru them and secured with Elmer’s glue. The other pics are showing ship constructing completed with first coat of paint with fibers still protruding approximately 1 inch past the ship to allow for painting. All the fibers are illuminated with leds.
This kit with lighting took approximately 5 hours to complete.
“Nice Job Joshua ~ Thanks again for sharing!”
