Default Re: Advise needed, Kazon Fighter

That looks really good! If you wanted to light it I woudl suggest drilling some holes for windows and inserting a short length of acrylic rod flush into each hole with the hull. The acrylic rod will pick really light up nice and bright. Your light source could be a 3 or 5MM Superbright white LED mounted on a brass tube inserted in a wooden base. The LED woudl be mounted in some type of collar made from styrene tubing that inserts into another piece of tubing mounted in a hole in the underside of the ship. You could take a short length of the same size tubing you have glued into the model and use it as a stop; slide it down over the LED stand collar far enough so that the model tube slides down over the LED collar until it butts up against it. Sadly, you'd have to ditch the kit stand.
