heh... ACTUALLY... there was going to be some tiny little SMD LEDs in there... but I got impatient waiting for the order to show up from eBay, so I just went analog... ;)

It's probably for the best though, trying to feed the tiny little wires back down through the smoke might've been more trouble than it was worth.  And after I ended up punching the tail LED all the way into the middle of the closed up fuselage and then had to try and fish it out again... I decided not to push my luck with this build.
Thanks!

Good call, and less is sometimes more...

Still looks great, though.  :thumbsup:

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