To load a video, you need to either upload it to youtube or some other similar site like Facebook and then post the URL link here.

I do have instructions on how to embed the videos on here, unfortunately the flash needed is disabled for the non mods, so people will have to click on the URL link to view
Completed Builds Hachette - The Black Pearl
Completed Builds DeAgostini - Build the Millennium Falcon

Always thinking outside the box....!

To embed a you tube video you need a flash BB code. However, it doest work and needs to be manaually adjusted. Drop the admin a note and speak to him, Ive found him to be a very helpful guy.

These are the motors driving the operating parts! Internal lighting will be controlled by the IR control as well.

Received my pack 2 at last! this comprises of 8 issues as I will now get pack 3 in two months time because I'm on 24 month subscription. It means Ive got a long wait until the next pack but this is the way they work the system. The first parts are the window covers. I'm modifying these to have clear Perspex, cameras, and lighting!
