Hey, Welcome to the Zoo!
It would be pretty tough with a black case, unless you put something white behind the screen, but that would make it no longer transparent, which kind of defeats the purpose. If you were able to get enough light in there, it doesn't really matter what color it is, it's just that getting a lot of white light is easier than most colors. If you could get it to work, that would be pretty awesome going around the front and sides. One in front and one on the side, so you get a front and side view of the rocket launching would be sweet too!
If you do give it a shot, I'd love to see it in the project logs here
