These are lighting kits for X-wing models (but they’d work with any space ship, really).  Master model maker Jason Eaton consulted with us on the creation of this board.  Features include:

  • On / off switch
  • 8 – 5mm LEDs in a random flickering pattern (red / orange on a movie board, white on a McQuarrie-style board)
  • 2 – 5mm warm white LEDs that are steady on
  • 4 – 1mm LEDs (red, blue, green, yellow) with random blinking effect
  • All LEDs are high-intensity
  • All LEDs Connected via cable and pin connector
  • PCB supports two possible power sources – 9v battery or 9v plug pack (aka wall wart)
  • Small size:  2″ x 1.5″ x 3″
  • Professionally manufactured circuit board using fiberglass FR4 stock, soldermask over bare copper (top & bottom), plated thru holes, solder-able finish, and silkscreen
  • All parts used are first grade, new, manufacturers product meeting the full manufacturers specification.

Of course, we can always customize the LEDs performance to do whatever you’d like!  Just contact us.


Customizable programing available at an additional charge.

(Note:  In the videos the LEDs have been placed inside PVC to simulate the engine cans.)
