Radiator panels letting out heat is also a bit silly in space... There's no airflow to help cool the panels so you'll need a lot of them - well, having them on extra folded wings makes sense there. You'll also be alight like a christmas tree for any heat-seeking missiles.

One would think it made more sense to somehow convert the heat into energy that the craft can use.
