As they are just bulbs , there is no + / -  to worry about , only with led's need  is there a problem.
Just a hint to prolong the life of the bulb, as these are rated at 6v try using a bit less if nicads use 4.8v (4 cells) or dry batts use 4.5 V
 (3 cells) the drop in light is not a lot and they tend to look a bit better as they can look more realistic.

I think they look about right , if you have them brighter the light shows through the plasticard and the backs of the lights, the pictures of full size ships I have seen taken at night tend to look similar.
