I finally finished my Real Sound Action Set release of Tamiya's beautiful A6M5 kit, after having sat on my shelf of doom for about 18 months.  This kit version includes a working propeller and fiber optic cockpit and navigation lights, all synched to a superb-quality recording of the startup and wind-down sequences of a real Sakae radial engine. I decided to give this a factory-fresh finish, and am delighted with the overall outcome. Crank up the sound on the video below to see this thing in action!

Tirydium (sp ?) make some nice LED light sets for SF and aircraft models, with flashing beacons etc.
I think they add something rather than render them toylike. Propellers that don't turn and so forth are the products of six year old boys who use too much tube glue.
