Just fantastic. Is this with the Tamiya lighting unit or one of your own making?

Thanks guys - the lighting is all scratch built with things (LEDs, switches, wire) you can buy at Radio Shack.
The strobe features are controlled by small 3V circuits (3) I robbed out of cheap $5 toy ray guns and the like. Some strobes actually use 1.5V grains of rice bulbs that work better then LEDs for viewing from all angles. They hold up pretty well for the intermittant duty they see. I'm aways looking around for things that might work for the RC projects. I may detail this system with a few pics and explanation later.

Simply stunning lighting effects. I would love to see a brief tutorial on how you achieved such life like effects. Fantastic
