    What I use in mine is baby oil and kerosen mixed 50/50 does have a little smell but works, you could use varsol instead of the kerosen like what they use in coal oil lamps

    Re light switch, on my Brooklin I use a push on push off switch or you can go to Hansen Hobbies and check out there Pico Electronic receiver switch that you can use to turn lights on or off from your receiver
