A big part of the project is going to be the lighting. The three main types of lights I am going to modify is the navigation lights (third from the left), spotlights (fourth) and bulkhead lights (fifth). I plan to use 3mm leds. The first is an unaltered led, the second is slightly shaped and roughed up with sandpaper to make it omnidirectional. I got the idea from a website.

got a late start so wasn't able to do much. Cleaned up the handrails from yesterday - sanding, then putty. Same with the tops of the funnels.
