Default Project Akali - Proof of Concept

Well, I finally developed a proof of concept for the project I've been working on... The objective is to add steady and flashing lights to a 1/200 scale 737 by a reasonable and repeatable method.

This model is a 1/200 scale 747-300... ICT and fiber optics provide the action.

A YouTube link to video of the model, and pictures...

Any comments, criticisms, or suggestions are welcome.
