This is a cool print for anyone that wants to show off there printers capability.
I haven't tried printing this in other colors besides white, but i'm sure it would look cool in different colors as long as they let light through. i personally like the glowing look of the white, and I think it looks more realistic.

I would recommend no infill because it lets the light through better, and it saves filament considering this is a larger model.
I would also recommend that you use as least supports as possible to insure good lighting.
