Falcon Mod Step - 26

After you’re done rebuilding, turn on your eLite Jr.’s and enjoy! The LEDs have a very slight blue tint to them, magnified by the white balance setting on my camera. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and I realize that my mods may have some room for improvement. This is merely an account of how I modded mine, you may find better solutions on your own. The modding evolved as I was building and photographing; I originally had thought about using a 20L fiber optic cable threaded through the tubing for the engine glow, but the light output from the cable wasn’t nearly as bright as direct exposure from the LED. If you can only get one kit, I would suggest using it for engine glow as the temptation to swoosh the model around is too great not to pass up.
