    i got this from a member a couple years ago, its fiberglass. :)

    last week i got the light bars from Jason at ASAP . :D

    His site is WWW.PROPSDONERIGHT.COM

    the leds are from Walmart christmas section :eek

    i am still doing the cleanup but i had to show it.

    i recessed the bars in the top like the early episodes. it aint fun cutting on $400 helmet. :cry

    sorry for the crappy lit pics. i forgot how to cut off the flash so i held my finger over it. :lol

    they show a bright yellow in a lit room.

    i did add a few more bulbs than correct but i wanted a more even glow, not gappy looking. :angel

    here is a pic of the lights as they come at Walmart. :)

    a penny is for size.

    i used my yellow ones so these are colored. they come in clear or colors.

    i used a 1/8 drill bit and they fit snug in the hole. :thumbsup

    they were in the Christmas light sectiion for smallll trees, :D

    Hey battery powered. Neat. :thumbsup

    I got some LED lights at Target this year, but they are the normal plug-into-the-wall kind.

    though not accurate to the show, i always wanted to use the vac formed bars and put el sheet inside to give a continues glow.

    i always assumed the lightbars are suppose to represent force field generators that projects an airproof "visor".

    like the landing bays for the vipers.

    Wow, I love it. If I ever have the time or the inclination, I hope mine comes out 1/2 as good as yours.

    Excellent work.
