OOOOOO. Thats a tuff one. I looked all over google without any results. Where arethe sparks going to be located?
THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY LIES IN MY PANTS
Personnaly I would try and avoid it, sparks are effectively motes of light floating in space, any attempt to create a time transistion will look more like an odd piece of wire than a spark, particularly since there is no time trasition on the rest of the model
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Well, f you are going to use them in this situation, painted static grass sounds about right - if not too generously applied, that is.
the grass is the only tdhing i can thinkof, but the wire would be to thick
get some co-ax cable (aerial cable) and when you strip off the outer sheath of plastic, you should find some very fine silver wire that might work

Or if you are a particularly crazy modeler, you can go the high tech scary way.
Take the wire and whatnot, get a power source, and when you turn the switch, it starts sparking. I can't remember exactly how-to do this, but anyone with some minor electrical experience could tell you how to do it. And if you do figure it out, post it here, as I have been thinking about trying the spark thing in my cityfight board.

Could you possibly rig something up with fibre optic cable and some LED lights, all powered by a watch battery in the base? Fibre optic cable is a glass wire that transmits light and shines it out of the end. The cable comes in a variety of thicknesses, so you could choose one for the right size sparks, link one end to the LED and poke the other end out of the model from where you want the sparks to appear.
I remember seeing a Star Trek USS Enterprise with LEDs for window lights. It looked very impressive in the dark.
Perhaps you could try to give the grass a color beforehand. I'm not exactly sure how you'd do that, but I've seen some guy at the local GW shop who had a tub of flock all dyed red.
