Just thought I'd share this mod with everyone. I saw numerous pinheads lighting the engines and/or adding wing lights - and I wanted something no one has done before...
Todd and the boys at TNT came up with this which I think is pretty awesome!
- 4 red led lamps on the front outside
-2 white led lamps inside the wings
-A "fire" led in the nose
-red and green navigation lights in the wing tips- which light when the plane takes off .
- I also painted new props which I think look much cooler

The game looks so much better now that captain walkers plane is tricked out!

Thank you TNT - this Tommy will never leave us!

Looks good. Any way you can change it to where the red and green are on all the time and the white only turn on when it takes off? That's the way it would be in real life.

Always a critic.... lol
Of course, you can light it that way - anything is possible!

Of course we aren't talking real life to begin with as captain walkers plane isn't a perfect replica of any known WW2 Bomber...

Next up is adding a spotlight on the mirror

Red Engine lights

Lighting the plunger plastic

And comet brites on the pop bumpers
