The 1/48 Eduard F6F-5N Nightfighter with Illumination is finished.

The F6F-5N Nightfigher is now finished. I had a brass nameplate made and used it as the front of the battery box. The box was built out of sheet styrene. The end caps just press in for battery access. The end cap on the right side is just temporary. I will be adding a switch to turn the lights off and on. The switch is on order and then once it arrives, I can design the end cap and I will 3-D print it for a better fit and to make the power switch not so noticeable. Overall this is a very nice kit with the exception of the decals. Even though I had to build it in a different order than the instructions due to the lighting, everything fit well. You can see all the build details and photos from start to finish in the build log section. 1/48 F6F-5N Hellcat Nightfighter

    As a follow up to my comment about the base you have used…

    Any thoughts on Eduard carrier deck bases I have bought?
