Default Round 2 alpha

My son is getting this for his birthday ( he was attracted to the small eagles), rather than just build it out of the box I would like to illuminate it.

Anybody done this? If so, how? Any fibre optic kits that can be used?

As for the LEDs, I have found them and many other electronic components from Tayda electronics.

LEDs are around 4 cents a piece depending on colour.
as for fibre optics, just cruise your dollar stores or 5 below for things like "finger lights" and other fiber optic toys and scavenge the fibres from these, there is plenty of space in that model to put the LEDs so you only need short optic strands and can save a boat load of money!

Hope this helps!

Good luck with your project!
