I have a F-14 Tomcat that I will say has a nice patina. Due to monitory issues I don't see a full restoration in the near future. Years ago I guess that the beacons failed and someone removed them and covered the holes up with a piece of plywood. Since I am on a budget I assume a set of original beacons are out of reach. I don't have any of the becon parts except for maybe a stray wire connector and a set of belts that came in my rebuild kit.
Has anyone come up with a reasonably priced alternative for the beacons or should I just get a nicer piece of plywood and call it done.
