"Chippy Ho!" 1995 - Academy 1/32 F/A-18C
Written by Viper
This is my first large-scale (1/32) aircraft model.
Made for the 2010 National Airfix Aeronautical Model Engineering Competition held in June, this was built in four months.
This model has surface-mount LEDs and fibre-optic filaments embedded to light up the LEX, wingtip and strobe lights.
Power is supplied from 4x AA batteries beneath the base, through sockets embedded inside the two main wheels, threaded up and into the circuit inside the fuselage.
