A Sci-fi terrain piece with LED

I’ve got a friend who loves putting LED’s in terrain, and encouraged me to build another lit terrain piece.  I realized I could do a small one without difficulty, so here it is.

I also used it as a color test for a possible scheme for my other sci-fi pieces, but I think it turned out too dark.

The LED is a simple blue LED taped to a 3V watch battery.  The windows are tinted plastic from a three-ring binder divider.  You can get four different colors together and more plastic than you’ll ever need for just a few dollars at any store that sells school supplies.
