This one has been in the works for a long time. One of my big beefs about a lot of lighted starship models I see is how bright the windows are - they look out of scale to me. So, for my 1/350 TOS E model I wanted to be able to set the brightness for up to 12 LED strips which also lets me balance them out in the three sections: saucer, neck, secondary hull.

All the Arduino code, Eagle board/schematic/Gerber files and bill of materials are uploaded to my Google Drive folder:

Brilliant stuff, Ross! Thanks for the huge effort and sharing. When I eventually get around to my TOS build, your circuits will be at the top of the must-have list!
