I've started a project to build all the ships seen on the original Star Trek series. I am still working on a kit of the Enterprise in this scale, but I actually finished this scratch-build first. This is the Warning Bouy from the episode "The Corbomite Maneuver." I built the cube from styrene and painted it with acrylic to replicate the textured, mottled surface of the orignial model used on the show. The original was lit from within, which I think I managed to capture in paint. For the photographs, I lit it very brightly from both sides with full-spectrum lamps. Makes it look lit from within to my eye.
