I decided to add some lights to the transporter.
I had to drill loads of holes to pass the wiring through, I also found the limitations of using pre-fused LEDs which was a bit annoying as I had to created several separate parallel circuits.
The lights are mostly on the outside as running wires into the interior was a bit too much to deal with on a first attempt as using LEDs.
They do all work, I just needed to make the battery compartment removable. I also need to hope that none of the wiring or LEDs fail in the future as it will not be possible to access them again without removing the deck and that is not going to happen.
Some magnets have been added to the underneath of the hull and now the landing gear will stay in place.
This gives me the height I need to construct a decent boarding ramp that will run between the rear struts and into to middle of the hull.
Almost ready to start on the interior of the transporter conversion. The various resin bits from Ainsty and Antenocities will be used to support a couple of internal walls and then around the edge of the hull.
I have not stuck anything down yet as there is still some preparation to complete and holes to drill and decisions to make before the deck goes down.
I have started work on the landing gear for the transport ship, I have a pile of bits and I am seeing what takes shape.
It needs to be quite strong, not to support the weight, but so bits will not drop off after the first game. I also want to make it removable so it will pack away easier.
