Lighting a model with a Tesla Coil?

Has any one tried this just glue the bulb / LED in place no internal wires.
just put it near the field and it lights up?

It won't work with out wiring, the LED needs a direct current. It won't work to induce a current through coils you need AC current. Then a few diodes in the model. Possiable to do but not easy
KEEP CALM AND CHIVE ON!!!
