Scale Aviator International Magazine Issue 3 - Page 21

Here’s a view of the landing light assembly. And There is only one on the P 47 on the left wing. The small servo moves the light in the down position and a micro switch applies power. This view shows the landing light in the retracted position and off. These are really bright LED lights and visible even in the daytime. The landing light adds another scale dimension to the P 47. These are the holes for the formation lights on the underside of the right wing. I was able to find red blue and amber lamps that fit perfectly at a local electronics store. I modified them to fit inside the wing and installed 10MM LED’s inside each lamp. For the rear cooler doors I removed the vacuum formed part that came with the kit and made metal doors with magnets that I can set manually for a more scale appearance. 21
