Let there be light!

I'm part of a great model club here in NS, and one of the members was kind enough to walk me through the basics of adding LEDs to models. Such things as positive, negative, 3 volts, and and the dangers of soldering irons were learned very quickly by me...its amazing how quickly something is demystified when you're shown how its done. Anyway, this is my first foray into actually rigging up custom lighting...and I'm reallly excited by the potential of it here. The cove lighting was purposely designed to be translucent in case I decided to do this, and I'm glad I had at least that amount of foresight. I may add the wacky colors as a clear coat to the light panels, but for now I'll leave them clear.
