I never thought about LEDs. If I do nothing else I think I will try a smaller meter….something like on the radios would be perfect. But...before I make any major design changes to the ship…I would like to hear from Philip on the subject.

Gentlemen…weight is my enemy. If I add anything, I have to remove something else. I can’t remove any more ballast. Have you seen the way she heels? I know these pics are out of focus, but you can actually see the water on deck, running in the gun ports and over the bulwarks too. She rolls very realistically but it is getting a little hairy. I sure don’t want her sails in the water…

So...if I add a servo...I need to remove the meters or some other form of weight. Like I said, I don't use the squares and maybe I just need to try to use that's already in place.
