Hi everyone. I'm back once again with yet another project that involved adding lighting to and this time I picked the MiniArt European Tramcar in 1:35 scale. I liked the idea of being able to create a small diorama with the included base and figures and was going to build it right out of the box. But once I looked closely as the instructions and then the actual parts I thought there was the potential to add some lighting and so it all began. The kit itself is quite well made with very little to no flashing and the level of details throughout is excellent. Some of the tiny parts are hard to cut from the sprues and the rails have far too many sprue joins to hold them in place. Why do you need about 6 joins to hold a thin rail that is about a half inch long? Other than that everything seemed to fit very well and I only had to make a few mod changes to incorporate the lighting. I don't pretend to be a pro and know very little about electronics and I may have used a little poetic justice with this build but I hope I have created a scene with many 'stories' within it depicting life in 1940's Germany. The German soldiers were a late addition to use up some of the spare space on the base and to give it some atmosphere. Anyway, on with the pics. I hope you enjoy them and thanks for looking.
