Hello! My attempt to build this fantastic ship as authentic as possible although the model has it's limitation according to details. I Used 30 warm led lights that I covered with reflectors to spread the light as natural as possible. Tried to get as close as possible with the colours. Painted the walls inside only to effect the dynamic of light.
Have seen models where the light is too white and in general too strong to look realistic. Reflectors can be made of ordinary white paper. The light for the funnels is the same, but as I couldn't cover it for the sake of the look I painted them with a yellow/white colour to mute the light to some degree. Overall i'm satisfied with the result.

Thanks! I will post some daylight pictures too even if it's mainly build as a kind of decorative light in the evening. Why so? Well, the details Isn't stunning on this model since it's very basic with no extra features as I know exists but havent used.The light was my main challenge and to get an overall natural look in a dark room.

As promised some daylight pictures. Hard to get a camera to duplicate the colours exactly though. The funnels are a little more yellow in reality and the whole ship has a more faded white tone. But it's pretty close. One of the ladders snapped when I built it so one is missing unfortunately. . Anyone knows if someone have made people in the scale matching a 1/400 model? Saw some for 1/350 scale. Would be pretty cool.
