Aircraft Recognition Lights


Recommended Posts

Many aircraft have lights. On WWII aircraft they used a series of lights for night time recognition and many have various lights for formation flying at night. Many times these are represented on models as mold lines or molded in the plastic. I came up with a tutorial on how to make these more realistic using Acrylic Gel Medium and Tamiya clear paints. You can see the tutorial on my website at https://davidsscalemodels.com/tips-and-tricks/recognition-lights/

Here are some pictures to see how they look:

Many aircraft also had a red "passing light" in the leading edge of the left wing.
