really nice Tim, i wish i had the guts to try lighting mine before i built it, what lighting set did you use ? and was it user friendly ?

The set was from Evans Lighting,though, I dont see it on his site right now, and it definitely wasnt user friendly, especially the instructions.

And that is why I'm intimidated by these light sets if you find one that is relatively user friendly please pass it on, i have a reliant that i would love to light up it adds so much to the overall aesthetics of the display

Hi Tim,
the illumination looks awesome!
I have not seen this kit here in Germany. :/
How much do you think, this model would be cost?

I just got this kit from Squadron.com, in fact I was just called and told it arrived today. I cant wait to get home and check it out, then put it in the closet while I figure out if I can afford the light kit!

This is looking great. I must drag out my Millennium Falcon and get stuck into that, I want to light up the engine area with pale blue light and add all the landing lights around and under the body. I was planing on using a small neon or fluro tube to light the engine area but that would require a transformer to power it. But i got some offcut strips of prewired RGB (red,green,blue) LED strips from work. (I work for a company that makes lighting equipment for film/TV concert use) We made a lot of dimming equipment for a "little sci-fi movie" being filmed at the moment, Can't mention the name...? Anyway but episodes 7,8,9 are being filmed at the moment... These strips come in a roll prewired. You can pick them up on Ebay for only a few dollars and can be cut to length and powered by a small 9V battery. The Great thing is that each color is wired separate so if you light the Blue and Green only i can get a lovely pale blue light just like the real one! so I'll use them instead. Might even light the cockpit with some fiber-optic to light up the controls.
