  6. Hi Mike Thanks for commenting on my new Build Log - Thanks for the pics of your build - It is almost a shame to cover up all the detail on the inside of the cabins - I am putting Lighting in all the inside cabins - I got miniture LEDS from a hobby lighting shop and they are going to work out great !
