I think F-14 and Terminator 2 look great with LEDs. F-14's light show is great.
I have done multiple machines with Art's bulbs and I don't think I could ever do a kit. I like the customization, but it is a lot of trial and error. It's totally worth it in the end, unless of course you want the machine to have a more "stock" look.
Quoted from DefaultGen:
There are a bunch of pretty ugly games in this thread I don't want to call out. But we've seen 3 pretty great looking F-14s, that game is a frontrunner.
There is a lot of personal preference when it comes to LEDs. Lots of people hate machines with any LEDs. I prefer to used coloured bulbs in my GI, but I know a lot of people think it looks terrible unless they are white. Whatever makes the owner happy.
Quoted from Craig:
I don't think these photograph well. I know the pics I've taken of my lit pins (with or without LEDs) don't do them justice.
Most of my pictures have been with my S4. It is a struggle to get a decent picture. I found taking the glass off helps. Luckily, I was given a real camera, so I can try experimenting with it.
