Good question .. I tried a couple of things, but I do not get much closer.  I think the key here is to model as much as possible similar to how these things work in real life.  Meaning hollow shell box letters, with neon-tube inside .. question is, how deep are they inside and is there a milky plastic "window" in the back or not.  etc etc.
