Bussard dome diffusing

Besides sandpaper and steel wool, is there something that can be applied to the inside of clear bussard domes to diffuse them?

I found some on EBay...would you be able to post a link to a photo of the bottle label for the dome diffuser? I could narrow my search then. Thanks for your help.

Flowquil for bussard dome

Has anyone used Flowquil paint to coat the inside of clear bussard dome to give it a diffused look...so you can not see the led lights until illuminated?

Bussard light kit failure

The spinners use a wall wart power supply. I have tested each spinner independently...the left one works fine, but the right one fails as described.

Bussard light kit failure

Hello. A problem here for the electronic wizards. I have a bussard LED kit that uses a 4017 and 555 IC chips. Left and right are separate PCBs. The right side stopped working such that it does not rotate, but the LEDs stay on. If I turn the power on and off fast, the LEDs appear to rotate as normal....

Bussard spinning circuit

The circuit uses a 4060 and 555 IC chip. The leds rotate clockwise. I am not that good with electronics. I want to make two led circuits that spin towards each other.

Greetings,
I have a bussard circuit to make spinning leds. It spins in one direction...how do I build the other to spin the opposite direction? Are the leds wired to different pin outs or ?

I search for this topic but could not find info. For LEDs in a model, using a wall wart for power, is it better to wire lEDs in series or parallel?

Any idea why the NX impulse engines stay illuminated blue when the ship goes to warp drive....as opposed to changing color to a more subdued glow when going to warp?
