I picked up some tiny lights at Hobby Lobby today to use for the backlighting.

I made a cardboard backdrop, lined it with aluminum foil and place one string of 30 rice lights in it.

Here is a closeup

I then connected the power with alligator clips and did a before and after picture

lights off

lights on
It looks like there are a few hot spots but I will ad a difuser between the glass and the lights which should even it out better.
It also looks like the blacks could be darker but this is going to have to do

:shock: :o :jawdrop: As if I wasn't impressed by the model itself, you're taking the display stand to another level
