Yah, Finescale Modeller has lots of nice and interesting tips.
The last one I saw was:
Aircraft lights from pin tops:
The curved tops of translucent pushpins
can be cut to look like wingtip lights for
1/32 and 1/48 scale aircraft.
When my 1/32 scale F-14 Tomcat did
not include translucent plastic for the
lights, I quartered the pushpin tops and,
with a little fine tuning, had realistic lights
— and even a taillight. After sanding down
the bottom of a purple pin, I also had an
aircraft sensor light.

I think Holger could use this one in his 1/48 Italeri helicopter
