I'm mounting the aircraft as if it's just taking off from the deck.
I found some old Christmas badges that light up. They have leds and a compartment for batteries and a switch, I'm thinking of adapting one of these to fit nicely inside.

Love the Necron light show...

If you are interested I think I got the rods from the http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk .

I remember you saying you were having it mid take off with the rear wheels still touching the deck [smile]
was wondering what your attachment method is going to be [smile]

Anyhow cool beans for the link, saved in my bookmarks for later [biggrin]

Christmas Badges !! of course !! why didn't I think of that ?!? [biggrin]
They sound perfect for this [smile]

Paul, thanks for comments. Now you can recycle those Pound Shop tacky Christmas decorations, and Charity badges. Also those damn novelty ties (but make sure you disconnect the sound boxes) [wink]

I'm going to have a clear rod securing the model, like the flying bases for Games Workshop flyers/hovers.
I've just found that the Delta wings are such a good fit that I'm going to leave them unglued...this should allow me to put in a few of those Leds, and gain access to change batteries etc...

Looking very good so far.

What about scratch building the main landing gear with some conductive wire?  you could continue it into the deck to provide hidden power and it would also strengthen the support for the plane in it's posed position.

cant wait to see how this comes out in the end

Funny you should say that I have a couple xmassy plastic ice cubes that flash on and off [biggrin]

Nice that the wings fit well, an easy access panel is the way to go for sure, this is shaping up to be an awesome build [smile]
I was hoping you might portray it mid rotation so the rear wheels are still on the deck so you don't have to fill up the rear pipe with plastic rod so we get to see inside the tail pipe for the neon engine glow.

Anyhow, which ever way you go I'm sure it will be cool as ffff [biggrin]

Just a quick update...

I've kept the wing section seperate, the fit is so good. Here you can see the upper and lower detail. Pylons have been attached and the forward slats will be painted seperately (I'm thinking a bright red).



I have also started the front landing gear, and is currently dry fitted to get the struts glued in the correct position. I've also attached the gear doors as the complete underside is going to be white.



Thanks for looking.

Latest update lite...

Phew, it's not pretty internally, but it's worked.

I have lights on and easy access.



Thanks to you all for following this part of the build.

I still can't believe that I got away with this in 1/72 scale.

Hoping to get everything primed up later, and then serious painting tomorrow.

Christmas has come early for me on this build....bit of tinsel in the cockpit...a layer of snow on the deck...

Wow Nigel ! You are ripping along at a rate of knots with this build mate.

I really like how you have done the jet pipe glow too, very very effective !

I was heavily into RC trucks up until a few years ago (electric then nitro/petrol) but I always struggled with the electronics side of things. I reckon if I dug out my soldering iron now I would end up picking it up by the hot end :-D

If you told me I would be adding lights to a 1/72 scale model I would have laughed at you, unless of course it was the USS Enterprise!

I know that feeling about the soldering iron (it has a hot end ? Omg).

Why is it that when you do something for the GB you always end up doing something strange.
I hope Luke doesn't decide to build the rest of the carrier deck, like his dad...you will probably get a visit from NCIS and JAG !
