Hey all, Long time lurker, etc. etc. I've been inspired by chaff.g's 1/48 build and decided, for my big summer project, to customize a Hasegawa 1/48 YF-19 with both photo-etched parts and LEDs. I've never put LEDs into a model before, and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction or assist me with translating pages 063 and 113 of the Variable Fighter Master File - VF Modeling Manual. While page 113 is specifically for the YF-19, I'd like to have page 063 as well just as a reference. I apologize if this is the wrong forum to ask. If anyone has any tips or tricks to share about installing LEDs into a Hasegawa model, I'd really appreciate them.
So, for my current build, I'm toying around with the idea of adding a few LED's to spice it up a bit. Just looking for a few warning lights, and such. Problem is, I'm one of those people whose lighting/mechanical endeavors in model building fail 98% of the time. I couldn't even get the monoeye of a PG Zaku II to light! So, does anyone have some idiot-proof (or at least very resistant) LED products, tips, or tricks to share? Thanks!
