Well I did the hard part tonight. I used a 1/16 inch drill bit and drilled out the center of the main guns. then used a 3/8 inch bit to drill from the back side forward.
Then I strung the fiber optics threw the guns and tacked them in place with a dab of glue.
If you look closely at the picture you can see the back drill holes and the 2 fiberoptic cables showing threw.

I have heard the saying, "Don't eat yellow snow.", but black? :)

Well I found out the hard way Fiberoptics do not like model glue. LOL
I need to find another way of tacking them down.
Maybe that was a good thing, because now each gun has 4 fiberoptics instead of one.

Here is one lighted up in blue and then again in yellow.
They are not centered yet though.
What do you think? What color should I use?

Well, the lasers that shoot out and hit the shield generator are red in the movie. So, the blue might not look right. The yellow looks kind of dull to me though. No red?

Well I increased the optics to 6 per cannon and tried a single red LED light.
Here is what that looks like.

Here is a look at the gun lights and one of the eye lights together.
The eye will have 3 lights when done plus a de-fuser to even out the glow evenly across the whole eye. Right now it looks to much like a Cylon eye. LOL

Thanks for all the interest!
I do Snow Removel in the winter and it has been snowing a lot so it will be a day or two till any new photos.

Anyway I was on the R2 builders websight and got another bright idea!
Im thinking of putting a sound board inside so it will make all the sound effects and have the lazers blink to the lazer sounds!

If I keep it up I might half to motorize the head too. LOL
