I must admit, that is really cool. I hope you continue to post updates on your project. I'd really like to see how it turns out.

That is EPIC! I've been looking for a website that will explain LED wiring in a manner that and idiot like me can figure it out. Any leads on that?

As for painting the inside of the thrusters. I think silver/aluminum should work just fine. You could also try putting clear blue over the metallic color. I'm not too keen on the idea of white just because I don't know how great that will look when the LEDs are off. Also, I'm sure there is a way to do this, but do you think you could rig it up so the light turn off and on by closing and opening the thruster pods? That would be great!

I look forward to more on this, sir!

ive been looking into it but im not sure with my current skill level if i can pull that off. I think im going to have it permanently attached to a base and have a switch in it. For leds you should check out badgrendels channel on youtube. He is where i learn all my stuff from. He has a lot of videos on the subject
