Thanks, guys :)

Found some time to dissect the tomcat today. Drilled a pair of holes and threaded wires through:


Soldered on the LED for one engine and pulled it all the way in:


Too bright. The superbright LED is living up to its name and reminded me of the Falcon
and hyperdrive:


Cut up some cellophane and glued it inside the tailpipe to diffuse the glow of the afterburners
and change the Star Wars hue:


Now that's better:

Thanks 3d-builder : )

Re-checked my measurements. My tower was too big so I made a new tower.



The Tomcat was probably more than a hundred feet away during filming?

Looking good!

Some common things found hanging from brackets and the ceilings of control towers are binoculars and light signal guns.

Hey guys, thanks! :) Monster Dave, I was wrapped up in some RC stuff - the SCX10's wonderful! - but I should be back on this soon.

Yes, the control tower is still in the mix but the F-14 is being superseded by by an Eagle...:)

Seriously though, how did I miss this??? Awesome idea!

Nothing, Monster Dave, sorry. Too wrapped up in my lunar module build which I started without finishing this first. And now I want to build a hover pilder next. I need to learn how to focus.

Amazing. I am a huge fan of dioramas and this is one of the most original ideas I have seen. Love it.
