   For those of you who have put off building your 1/350 KBOP for the right time, your time has finally come.

Starling Proudly introduces the only available Plug-n-Play AMT 1/350 KBOP Lighting kit.

   We go E/FX™ all the way with this kit.
This complete kit features Disruptors and Torpedo sound and visual effects as well as Engine effect, taken from Star Trek III The Search for Spock, mimicking the scene where the KBOP destroys the USS Grissom that is orbiting the Genesis Planet. This is one awesome kit, easy to install with very limited soldering and no electronics skills necessary. You will be able to attach a 9v battery and test the kit right out of the box. Detailed instructions include many photos and techniques on light blocking, drilling windows and installing fiber optics.

Kit works with any of the 3 posing positions.

Effect features 2 settings:

1.) Press the button once to fire Disruptors ending with a torpedo.
