    Not sure, i'm not at home to check at present. I'll take a look later if nobody beats me to it.

    I know that it was mentioned on the model space forum that Deagostini were aware of the faults with them and it was due to the way there were packed. They were giving replacements to people who rang and complained as it was a frequent issue, in the US at least.

    I just figured that it had been so long since mine had been delivered (like 2 - 2.5 years) that it would just be easier to make my own especially as 99% of the time i won't have the lights running.
    Did you wire up 2 separate strips like the kit has or just one long strip powered buy the single plug

    I've not wired it yet, i cut a short strip the same length as the deag one and just did a touch test both on battery and adapter. I'm tempted to actually do two long strips to make the engines a little brighter and plugged seperately.

    It'll be a while before i get to it as I've only just primed and pre-shaded the bottom hull, once i get it basecoated and the coloured panels done I'll look at putting all the lighting in and then testing the engine setup

    It may yet all go wrong and explode as i'm not fully electrically minded, but injury during the learning process is usually expected when i'm involved.
