VOYAGE FLYING SUB DIORAMA #09
A Monogram ® model replica of the FS-1, newly built
during the past 20 days.
NOTE: The top hatch, front window panes, and hull
strips are in fact blue, although they appear black
in some photos. The model is NOT the original plain-old
yellow color. Acrylic paints were used, and the model's
color is sealed in a lacquer top coat.
Detailed lighting effects featuring:
Reactor panel lighting with plasma effect (not circular
effect like Star Trek warp engines) Right and left side
control panels have fiber filament lights timed in 1 and
3 second on/off effect. Smaller rear control panel on
left of cockpit engine door hatch is fiber-lit. Right
thruster engine fueling-effect; red fiber lighting feeding
into reactor tube.
The model and base is powered by a 12volt wall adaptor, and
an easy male/female adapter is attached from the model to
the base. Power is push-button activated.
