    Hey everyone!
    I work at Target here in Dayton, Ohio, and we have started carrying an item that would work well for lighting up a model. It is a small plastic cone base with a bundle of fiber optic strands mounted in the base and they fan out like a willow tree. There must be a hundred strands, all lit form inside the base by 4 LED's. The strands are 10-12 inches long and the unit is powered by a small adapter.
    All this for only $7.99! They come in silver, red and blue. The blue is perfect for spaceship lighting. They are on a back end cap in section 'C', over by the lamps.
    Cheap and useful- love that Target. Just a quick heads up.

    Hey, another Ohio man trapped
    in this godawful State !!! LOL...

    I have a Target a few block's
    from me, I'm curious though ?
    When you say in differnet color's, do you
    mean the DISPLAY'S are different or the led's
    are differnet ? And since there are three
    color's, are they EACH three color's?

    Or is each one ONLY one color and you need
    to get all three for the different color's ??

    There is an all red one, an all chrome one and an all blue one.
    Each unit is only one color.
    Sorry for the confusion!
