I love the use of LED and cotton for these action shots! You did a fantastic and realistic job here. Congratulations!

The results are beautiful.

Hi Richard, glad you like it...see you at SMW mate ?

Thanks William, In fairness though, I didn't come up with the idea of the cotton wool lit up by an LED. I asked for guidance & suggestions on here & was pointed towards another website where the guy makes a fantastic job of similar work. Following his suggestions & examples I gave it a go & it worked perfectly first time. So full credit to the MilMod boys for the leads & suggestion ... & Tony Mousley Sahib for the sparky bits.   it is a MUST SEE !!!!!!!!!! smile dsmile d

Been away for my hols so missed the final reveal. I have enjoyed your build right from the start and to pull out the surprise of the rocket launch at the end is fabulous. A real show stopper and I hope you get a chance to exhibit her at some shows. Terrific work and a wonderful response from all the guys. Well done mate

Thanks for your kind comments Steve. It sort of makes me wonder if I could belatedly alter the Thunderbird SAGM build & stuff some LEDs up the booster rockets....being as those are all it uses for initial take off dont know

Imagine if you will the four boosters lit up in the same way .............hmmm, something to ponder.
