Rhombic Triacontahedron (Internally supported) - Glow

Since it's nice and sunny out, I finally got to try and take some decent pictures of glow-in-the-dark Geomag:

Since the outer layer (blue metallic) doesn't show anyway, I peeled it off for the next picture:

Then I opened the door to let some light in, which resulted in the following picture:

Finally had a punt at one of these last night...

What a total nightmare :cry:

Had to go the dodec route, then poke the rods though then remove the dodec. :lol:

Got there in the end though :mrgreen:

Wim, what are you using to charge your glow up so successfully??? :?:

Sunlight. This past Saturday it was quite sunny out. So I took the model outside for a few minutes, then moved it inside and quickly took some pictures. Then back outside to peel the shell off of the model and recharge, and back inside for pictures...

It's a very cool model, but initially difficult to build. So I've built it a few times by now and it's a lot easier once you know what you're doing in making it. :) But it's also why I put the post about it in the building challenges/instructions earlier. :oops:
