Thanks BS!

I need some input on the next stage. The airframe is mostly finished, a clean canvas for a night flyer masterpiece. Considering how to do the LEDs. From all the pics I have looked at, white covering lit from the inside seems to be the way to go.

The fuse should be easy. White covering lit with white lights from the inside. The tail feathers will have to small pieces of LED strip or individual LEDs.

The wing has options. Cut notches in the top of the ribs and run LED strip, like on the glider, or light each "box" of the wing structure separately. I can use different colors and my RGB LED controller can make patterns. I wish I had made the wing tips out of 3mm depron. Then they could be lit from inside.

Besides LED strip I have some Cree lamps, used to make flashlights. Very small and super bright. Also I go some 3 and 5 watt assemblies to experiment with and this other little component.
