Default Tiny Snowspeeder

I bought this excellent little Snowspeeder from Reto SF ages ago but only started it the other day. Anyway I didn't want to do a straight from box build (hardly ever do) so I drilled out the guns for optic fibres. It was a slow and steady job but I managed to hollow out all the components of the guns even some of the tiny detail. I've swapped the barrels themselves for 2mm aluminum tubing. there's a tiny led imbedded in the engine block ready for illumination.
Here's the pics of work so far and one to show just how small this tiny miracle is.

wow that is small - lots of patience required but I am sure it will be worth the effort
look forward to seeing it lit.

I've done a bit more on this project now, but with the tiny dimensions and tiny wires keep needing to be re-soldered it's proving to be a right pain in the ass.
There's some light leakage but I'll deal with that later, anyway here's some pics.
