William Hayden’s photos guide us thru how he incorporated single strand fiber optic filament into his impeccable build of the 1/72 Fine Molds Tie Interceptor ~ Remote Interceptor Base Lima.
William: I built this project for a Star Wars group build last year.
It took over 100 hours to build (Nobody ever accused me of being fast).
Key take away here is just how much lighting you can pack into a very small model using fiber optic cable and some ingenuity.
This build was fully documented, but here are some choice shots of the process.
Thank You William for your excellent contribution to our site! May the force be with you!

UPDATE DECEMBER 2016: In tribute to the world wide release of Rogue One ~ A Star Wars Story, we created three new Hobby Spool Combo Packs. Each of these combo packs feature our popular 1.5mm filament. Click on the images below for more details:
