Wow, I am amazed...  :twitch: So much detail in such a small area, I am impressed with your dedication to this project. I love all of the extra internal detail that you have added to the internal bay of the Meteor unit.

Keep up the great work.

Wow WB this is an ingenious idea!  I think you totally solved the problem of wiring and moving parts as well.  Imagine the socket can be used as a joint for not too heavy parts, preserve both electrical and mechanical connection at the same time!

Wow! I haven't checked in on this project in a while. Impressive detailing all around. The light from the LEDs look great, I like that you toned them down with the white Plaplate. I've seen some kits lit up  in a way that looked like spotlights shining out of the model and thought it was too much.

My only complaint is the use of the rare and sought after Dengeki Primrose part in the detailing of the beehive! That's not right!  :P  :lol:

thanks guys...

Major Blah - yeah, these are pretty useful! Another good option are stereo mini jacks (those used in headphones). Better for more complex circuits, since those come with 1ground and 2live connections. I'll probably be using some of those in the other parts of the meteor later

Funaka - Hahahaah, I don't think I'll ever get round to building a hazel with the primrose add on. figured I'd out those part to good use :)

hehehe...

The more Hazel/Primrose units the better...    :P  :-)

I love the progress you have made so far, especially all of the work done with the LEDs. I am amazed at how much work you have done for this model, especially the lighting.

Keep up the great work.

Very interesting  the use of the jack for the electrical connection, they help a lot for the painting of the parts. I like so much the tons of deatail and the hight number of opened frames. Do you think to add some figures, or leave it alone?
