They do know about LED, rope lights and other such things that do bend. Unless you can permanently establish that the later does not bend, the illusion does not work. Steve, I would do some goggle searches for old showcase or display companies. There is a chance that they might have some old bulbs in the back. It will take a lot of leg work but it might be worth it. The other option that would involve a major rework is to make a poly carbonate (or something similar). Fake the inside illumination with some kind of miniature rope light that would be suspended like the filament in the tube. I am not sure that you could get enough light from that though. You may have to combine it with a light at the base (kind of like a milk in light bulb). Use a Halogen lamp. Richard [/quote]
