Thanks guys will have a go at adding another resistor.

. Or even add a 500 ohm trimpot, and vary the brightness to your desire.

Not seen these before very interesting, I will look into using these. Thanks. 



For now testing the lights, you see the upper cabin is going to need some filler.

If possible, try and add material to block the light from entering unwanted areas.

I had used a sheet of card, glued next to the LED, as a blind.

Also have used aluminium foil (don't short the LED leads with this!), to block areas out.


The trimpot has three connections. You only need two. One must be the centre connector, the other can be either one of the other two.
