A very easy to use fibre optic lighting kit suitable for a range of model kits from Warhammer to model trains. Kit includes 2 x fibre optic strands and can be used with 3v or 12v power supply.
1.0mm strands are very flexible with a minimum bend radius of 20mm.
This is PMMA cable which is industrial grade fibre.
Perfect for providing small pinpoints of light where LEDs would be too large.
Possible uses include:
Warhammer models for console lights, buttons, cockpit lighting, guns, figure eye pieces, terrain details etc
Model train layouts, all scales (N, HO, O etc).
Sci Fi models, spaceship windows, running lights.
Ship portholes, aircraft lights, car headlights, dashboard lights in vehicles.
Installation is best done before gluing the model together so wiring can be hidden in the shell of the model. Holes are best drilled before painting.
Fibre optic strands will be left 5 inches long for trimming to correct length after installation.
- 1 x 3mm LED with 2 x 1.0mm fibre optic strands attached with choice of colour
- Available as 3v or 12v option
- Additional fibre optic looms can be run off the same battery. For a coin cell I suggest a maximum of 4 additional looms to prevent dimming of the LEDs but for an AAA battery box there's no restriction.
These are simple to install. Installation is best done before gluing the model together so wiring can be hidden in the shell of the model. Holes are best drilled before painting. Choose where you want the fibre optic strands to go and drill a hole of the appropriate size, glue in place with hot melt glue and connect the LED wires to the battery wires using the connector block.
