Default Wing Tip Smoke systems options?

So not for a jet, but you are more likely to have answers. Im building a T28 Red Bull Replica for scale contest, unforntenitly it has wing tip smoke vs from motor like most.

So Im looking for options to get smoke in my wing tips, what are the options you know of?

I'm ok with a chemical smoker if this an option?

My jet buddy recomended https://www.smoke-system.com/smoke-el.html system, it looks very cool and almost perfect, but at $900 WOW this is more than some spend on a plane LOL.

there are a few options with smoke cartridges.. the ax-18 seems to get positive response. there was a german (?) company who had a "smoke writer" cartridge i heard good things about before.

Sadly that plane just crashed 3 days ago and was totally destroyed. Pilot was killed. Very tragic. 😢

Mike,
Be careful with what you put on the tips for smoke. AMA used to have a safety rule that said something to the effect of not having anything thing on the plane that burned. I set up smoke colored smoke cartridges years ago on an Extra. I even used the igniters from model rockets to lite them. I was never able to fly with them on the plane because of the one safety rule.
Only option I see is an electric style heater cartridge that would inject smoke oil in to it. I saw them somewhere for electric planes but I cant remember where.
