How to Add Lighting to a Model Building

How to Add Lighting to a Model Building

If we want to add an extra layer of realism to our models then you can’t beat light effects.  This video shows how easy it is to add an LED to a model building.

The first step is to solder leads on to the LED but if you don’t fancy that, then you can buy ready soldered LEDs from suppliers like LedBaron.de.  If the LEDs are any smaller then I always do that.  My days of soldering 0.4 by 1.4mm LEDs are done!

If you want to know how to solder even small LEDs then check out MicroLumina.
