After the printing of the panels was done, I put them into place
for a short test fitting.
To make a glow effect, I installed LED stipes to the bottom side.
The main body had to be prepared for the paint job. For that, I covered the
entire body with two layers of spray filler. Smaller gaps were also closed with some
Also the panels were primed and painted.
Cause the entire monitor should lokk a bit used, everything got some layers of weathering.
Then the first panels were attached to the also painted body.
To control the liall the light effects, I prepared a switch panel.
Here also an RGB LED will switch from red to blue, when the controlled effect is running.
I also found this little LED blinking kit in my electric drawer, so I thought why not try it out.
I will add some more details and a running light effect.
Next up will be final pictures of the monitor, then I will work on the X-Wing again.
