Here's the first of the LED's going in. Progress is even slower now (back at work).
Making the lights work is the easy part, constructing a model around them is the tricky bit.
The wings are designed to detach for transportation which complicates the wiring further.
Ahh well... he who dares Rodney!!!

That's impressive!
It's a good idea to design the wings to be detachable.

It is a good job, that they are.
Andy is planning to partially 'fly' his latest creation on completion by adding them to the upper of the car.
I remember a certain trip to Huddersfield with a 'Concorde Casket' balanced on the laps of those in the back.
This is much bigger, so the wings need to be able to be removed.
Cheers,

I remember it well, I don't think Ron was too impressed. That model still exists in Col Tony's collection.

I've made some more progress on the lighting...Although you cant tell.
I have found that getting the fuselage halves to fit together whilst juggling with the wires will be no mean feat. Learning on the job.
The control board will live in the bomb bay so I can get to it for any future fault finding. Of course this means no bombs or detail but I don't want to bury every thing away so I cant get at it.
Thanks all.
Andy

Coming along great. The internal painting looks fantastic when you zoom in.

Looks like you need knitting needles Andy. Looking brilliant though.

Hi Andy,

That looks very nice and complicated.........
Good idea about using the bomb bay as a home for the control panels for the electrics.
Watching this one with interest.

They need to know where they're going, right...
Just when I'm about ready to put the fuselage halves together, I find something else to do.
