  1. Hello Everyone, I have bought the MOEBIUS 1/8 scale space pod. Injection mounded. I also obtained from the US company Tenacontrols (not the pants!), their lighting kit. the total cost of kit and lights around er,eum. about £350 for both after import taxes etc. so I have to do a good job for such a wad. I have checked basic fit of pod parts and they are very good. taking stills from the movie 2001, the interior is ls pretty near the movie prop. I have begun masking off the interior to prevent light bleed from the LED lighting kit. I also have an ARDUINO to be used
  2. May I present one grand old lady - Galactica: Got this a while ago and grabbed all the electrics to light it when I did my Viper. Taking what I learnt from that I invested quite a bit of time trying some more complex lighting and used some fiber optics and micro led's to get the scale right with this. This is the Revell copy of the Mobius kit and aside from some flash and rubbish decals, it's a great kit. I cocked up the order of one side of the landing bay arms but I was too far into the build when I noticed it to correct it . I spent quite a
  3. Hello everyone. My name is Andy from Scalectronics, and I've spent the last 12 months developing a new lighting & sound solution for scale models called Inner-Light. I believe it is the most advanced and flexible solution currently available, and has several cool features, namely: It is suitable for any model. The LED lights used are interlocking, so you can add as many as you need for your build. Each one can generate any colour. Only 3 wires are required in total - no matter how many lights you use, they are simply daisy chained. Colours and effects
  4. Hi all i also have the RN Fg.1 thread going just below. Im also working on an 1/48 Airfix Lightning F.3. Do the wing flaps droop when at rest. All the photo's ive seen show me know. But as some of you have more experience with the Type i thought i'd ask ? Dennis
  5. Hi all This is my attempt at lighting the Revell Neoplan Cityliner. After lighting the Routemaster Bus it gave me the confidence to attempt the same with this kit although there wasn't so much space to work in, with such a large cluster of lights. To find out the external lighting setup I contacted the manufacturer and someone was kind enough to send a picture of the front and rear with every light function clearly marked. I also had to find a way of lighting the floor passageway and the internal roof lights but found something on the Internet that helped to achieve that. It is
  6. Hi chaps. I'm nearing the end of my current build,so have turned my mind to my next build. Ed-209 is on hold, at the moment, kinda burned out with sorting his legs, so I'm trying some new things. May I present the pegasus mercury 9 rocket kit..... I've had this kit for a bit now, so thought I would pull it out of the stash and dust it off. Going try some new things, to me, as the kit comes with out buildings I'm going to try a diorama! Now I think this kit has been designed with lighting in mind. It is a 3 engined rocket, and each "nacel" cont
  7. Afternoon, I've finally given into temptation and made a start on this one. I have some big(ish) ideas to go with this kit - we'll see how many of them come to fruition. Things I definitely want to do are: - Drop the flaps - Separate all the flight control surfaces, - Add external (and possibly internal) lighting - Motorise the props My inclination is to keep all the doors closed up - out of the box the cargo hold is fairly plain, and I think it would take a lot of work to get it in to a state that I would be happy with. Also, I'm inclined to do it 'in-flight', so whilst the ramp could
  8. Hi Folks, My trusty old angle poise lamp just gave up the ghost with a considerable bang! Has anyone got any experience of buying and using the magnifying type lamps which seem to be quite plentiful on e*$y or is it recommended to bite the bullet and go to a specialist dealer i.e. is it a case of you get what you pay for? I would be grateful for any thoughts. Cheers, M
  9. 1:32 Hawk T-1 lighting kit Tirydium Models Following on from his fibre optic lighting sets for sci-fi subjects HERE, Tirydium Models has released this set for the Revell 1:32 BAe Hawk T-1. Packaged in a clear zip lock bag the set comes complete with all you need to light the following: Nose Light (White LED) Wing Tip Warning lights, (White LED’s with 2 x 0.75 fibre guides) Top Strobe Light, (Red LED with 1 x 1.0mm fibre guide) Underside Strobe Light, (Red LED with 1 x 1.0mm fibre guide) There is also a controller chip on a board for the flashing strobe lights. Everything comes p
  10. Wondering if there is a lighting expert in house? Converting this to a spray booth and would like to mount a light(s) on the top portion. Lots of options, LED, Halogen, fluorescent.......input appreciated. Robert
  11. Hi guys, this was a bit of an experiment ive been wanting to do for some time. Below is a screen grab from the Battlestar Galactica Mini Series, it shows a Battlestar similar to the Galactica hit and adrift, and it gave me an idea. I thought to myself, hmmmmm ...so, rather than posting all the photos, here is the end product, and a link to the folder with all the WIP photos for your viewing pleasure. http://s181.photobucket.com/user/chris1984_99_99/library/Battlestar%20Titanic?sort=3&page=4 I still need to get a base made for it, but I think im finished with the kit itself. Its my f
  12. Hi, I'm aware there are a couple of companies out there offering ready-made aircraft lighting sets, but I'm quite keen to have a go at doing something myself. My chosen subject is the Revell 1/72 A400M - I'm not sure any of the off-the-shelf sets cater for the size or complexity required (wingspan nearly 65cm). Can anyone suggest any good resources on the subject, including circuit design, component selection, achieving the appropriate frequency for flashing beacons and so forth. It's been a while since I've wielded a soldering iron, but I'm up for a challenge! I'm also planning to add motor
  13. Hi everyone For those that saw my post with the pictures of the finished product (Ready for Inspection - Maritime / Revell 1/400 scale Titanic with lights) I thought that the diagrams below may help them to see how fairly easy it is to do. Below are the pictures of how I cut away sections of the kit to allow light to flow from the hull and throughout the ship. The worst job was to drill out all of the portholes and the windows along the walls on the decks. I covered the whole of the inside of the hull with silver foil to reflect the light upwards and then just added about six 5m
  14. Having recently developed the lighting kit for the 1/32 scale Revell Hawk I've been asked to develop one for the 1/48 Airfix Hawk kit. This will have the same lights as the 1/32 kit, ie nose light, wing tip lights and strobes. This thread is to show the development of the lighting kit but I will use one of the Airfix kits to work out how it needs to go together. Firstly on the 1/32 kit the nose light is a small SMD LED which sits within the nose section, on the 1/48 Hawk kit there is not enough room to install a LED so the nose light will have to be a fibre guide. Having built up the cockpit
  15. My model club is considering buying a video camera to help display modelling demonstrations. We already have an excellent screen and projector but are a bit clueless about the other kit required like a camera and lighting. Any advice on what is the best sort of camera, recommended models and lighting would be much appreciated. I think we will also need a tripod. Our budget can stretch to several hundred pounds. Thanks, Nigel
  16. I have been thinking about my current Dalek build and it really is crying out for some lights to be installed. My thoughts are two red flashing LED's on the dome and possibly another in the eye stalk. I can probably manage to wire up an LED but how do I go about creating a flashing effect? I would guess that I could get some sort of module from Maplins (there is a handy local store in Aberdeen). I think I will also have to create a base as somewhere to install the batteries. Any tips or advice from electronic wizzes out there would be appreciated. Nigel
