After my first foray into the wonderful world of electronics, I decided to up my game on and create a clock/base for the Tintin rocket.  Almost all the work in progress pics are the of the back of my head as I slam it down on my desk trying to figure out the correct current resistance for each LED... and then break a leg off the transistor in the process.

However, the final result can be seen in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xLPtkSW7oo
Thanks!

Looks good.  If I had built it there would have been a real ignition as the electronics burst into flame.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Despite working at first, the button has developed an attitude.  It only works when it feels like it.  I'm not sure what the problem is thouh, so it may yet achieve real ignition...  :banghead:
Thanks!
