If you use an office chair mat, they come in large sizes btw, makes it safer against paint spills, and easier to find parts that fall off the table and onto the floor. A goal of mine, is to try keep that (my) room tidy, so that I can easily clean the dust on the floor. I have positive pressure I am sure (filtered vent blows air into the room), so that helps prevent dust from the living room going into the hobby room I think.

Thanks, we've used chair mats, the last ones being more-expensive thicker mats, and just don't like them. I've got nearly a full case of leftover carpet tiles so if there is a paint spill or something it will be simple to just swap out the affected tile(s). This carpet has practically no pile to it so in the unlikely event a small part does escape from the desktop it should be easily recaptured. One good thing about a darker hue floor like this is that any "foreign" material stands out obviously - this I know from the two days spent laying them down, where each little spec of wood, carpet fiber, etc kept showing up (probably tracked in from my socks as I was in and out of the room) and had to keep getting picked up so the floor could be pristine at least once before all the furniture is moved in. I think dust and cat hair will always be an issue, and maybe will need to be running an air purifier in the room - we'll see.

My new desk isn't estimated to ship until Dec 4th, so this gives me a little time to sort through some boxes putting away the various photoetch, decals, and resin parts that didn't have access for storing in their respective kit boxes when they were stacked in the closet. Finally everything can get put away properly as I fill the closet back up.

Vintage rocker switches, the same kind used on the original "Star Trek" series, arrived today along with a laser-cut black plastic bezel. The fun part now is getting paint to adhere to the rockers. (They're a type of nylon plastic that won't want to play nice with paint.)

Amazing project. Looks like you got it down to a science. Excellent workmanship.

You could have a motion detector outside the door, warning of intruders..
..with matching red light and alarm sound to go "Intruder Alert". :D Maybe a low volume sound effect would do and no flashing red light.

Do you have any 1:350 Enterprise NCC-1701A refit kit in your stash?

I did some preliminary work on mine, planning to fit it with led's some time in the way future. I will use a christmas tree clear "ball", cut to shape and painted matte, for creating an interesting diffuser object inside the bright deflector dish, and maybe add another layer as well to diffuse the light. Stopping light bleed is important, so use of metallic paint and black, or maybe foil, and thicker black paint should do.

Ah, on the flip side, an intruder alert might be faux pas if you are supposed to share the room with your better half.

Anybody building Star Trek models who wishes they could get DLM detail parts for their kit(s), it looks like a new company Lake Monster Models is now producing some of the DLM products. They are available at CultTVman, get them while you can.

I'm looking but can't found anything?

Okay, found it now, THX for info

Lake Monster Models supposedly has more DLM re-issues in their pipeline.

The next sets soon to be released are for Excelsior and Enterprise B, C, and D. The quality of the parts I've gotten is better than the original DLM parts, clear parts are actually clear instead of yellowish-tinted, and they don't reek of cigarette smoke. :)

Torsten Wendt
Sounds good, thank you very much for the infos :)
