I think we might be!
But your lights will be entirely done with your skill & hard work, whereas, mine were done for me ...and I'm still daunted by this project!
I'm not going to do a build post here. I have a dedicated file at the bucket for it, but that's all
I'm going to need to be on my game.

Thanks for the link, I was going to ask for it. I have seen the base and love it. Mine will be on a "diorama" base, just have decided what yet. Are the plumes solid white resin or transparent? I know in the film the plumes were not "illuminated" but I would like to do something like that with mine.

I contacted Dan at ODG and he sent me translucent ones.
For some reason the seller asked them not to ship the base with hollow plumes. Fragility perhaps?
So the base comes with solid ones.
I think they are lovely..and will look great as you said, with some lighting inside.
I'll PM you with link to bucket.

You'd need to ask him, His vision was to cast them hollow.
But the vendor requested solid.
I'll take pics in a bit of the lighted primed plumes..they look very cool!

Now understand I'm putting a lot of lumens in the plume in these pics.
You'd need to test leds to get the desired effect..
This will give an Idea of the possabilities.

Here is a pic of the plume lighted from the top. I used a standard 3 mm bright white.
Drilling out the tops of the plumes took 6 drill bits and about 20 mins..you gotta work vewwy swowlly.
