Thanks guysSmile

Just a quick one as I got my lighting sorted for the cut-away section.

Leaving the lighting installation as an afterthought - or more like "shouldn't be too much of an issue to fit it later" - turned out to be very silly mistake...

Glueing the LEDs in place not so much, but concealing the excess wiring and preventing it from dangling down was more than a frustrating challenge.

My thought was to hide it all between the upper deck planking and a second ceiling but as it turned out, some of the supplied figures already touch the upper deck planking and lowering the ceiling would prevent me from showing the crew at allHuh

Now I'm left with the exposed wiring. I think the only option i'm left with will be to paint the wires in a light wood colour in order for them to be less obvious...

I'd like to disguise the LEDs with some sort of cover to make them look more like lanterns. Anyone any ideas where to find some which I might be able to use?

Of course! That's such simple jet effective solution!!!

I initially thought of cutting slots into some brass tubes but your suggestion Martyn is so much better and easier to do. I've got a few brush covers and they are slightly opaque, just needs the lantern frame painted on LOL

Woot Woot Woot that just made my day Martyn, thanksThumpUp ThumpUp ThumpUp
