X-wing board videos

Posted by Lightbenders On October - 13 - 2010

These are lighting kits for X-wing models (but they’d work with any space ship, really). We stuck the lights into PVC so that we could show what the engine lights would look like.  It’s hard to believe, but they are even brighter in person.  One of the other things we did is adjust the algorithm for the console lights.  Instead of going completely out, they dim.  We felt that this better simulates the interior of a cockpit.  Of course, we can always customize them to do whatever you’d like!
