|Notes||I saw this idea for illuminated engines mid-liftoff on the web and decided to have a go myself. I took it a step further and used one of my LED drivers to provide an animated flickering to each rocket nozzle blast for an even more lifelike effect. The base is custom made from laser cut black acrylic and has an engraved nameplate along the front edge. It houses the batteries and electronics for the lighting.|
A video of the lighting effect can be found here.
