This is my build of my Moebius advanced raider Its a nice kit i would like to put a roving eye in it, but I'm not that talented so i will have to wait to see if someone will make a kit that will do that. If that happens i will make another raider that i can put a roving eye in. Until than I'm going to put a static eye in this one to mimic the scan done to Anders in season 4 and also light the engines. Kinda started putting some of it together before i shot these pictures so some of this dose not come together as shown.

Glued in nut so i can support it and run the wires for lights in a tube:

OK its time to get modified for lights I bought 3mm led's for it (2 white and 1 red)I haven't received the red one yet in the mail
1st made a blank piece to put the led in, made it at the end of the engine piece to be just in front of the clear lens.

For the eye I made a piece that goes right behind the eye opening and drilled a hole in it in the middle of the opening, still have some work to do here i have to seal it off after i get the led in it .

This shot is of the seam that was fixed and you can also see the end of the guns that i drilled out to make it look a little more real.

Got a lot done this afternoon,my red led came in for the eye. I installed that and was able to prime it and a coat of color. As far as the eye if your doing a static eye as i am bring the led right to the middle of the eye opening directly behind it if you don't you wont be able to see the light from the sides.
Here's some progress shots:
