Red lighting would be best to keep with the Military Theme. We only use red lights in combat because of it's inability for red's wavelength to travel long distances. I white flashlight in Afghanistan will be visible miles and miles away... a red flashlight or dome light is only visible within a mile or two normally, depending on intensity. Also, our eyes perceive night vision through varying shades of grey and green/yellow/white light has been know to cause glare and severely effect a soldier's night vision. Red spectrum light doesn't cause your pupils to shrink, therefore preserving your natural night vision. Really, you guys should get red flashlights for emergencies. It will help you out and it won't cause anyone you aim it at to go blind for a few minutes while walking around your yard/house/garage, etc.
And keep it dim. That way you will still have some lighting effects to keep the kid happy but not wash out the OD Green and hazard yellow scheme.
Would love to see a build like this with Flat Dark Earth and Coyote Brown shades...In fact... I think I will.
