LED Projects

Recommended Posts


Finally pulled out the box of LED I bought a number of months ago. Before going into N Scale I thought to try something easier, HO scale ditch lights, It looked like a simple task so I gave it a go. The first iteration was ok but had a few issues. The next one came out better shown below.


The sad thing was it took 2 days to create and 1 milli second for me to slice an edge with my exacto blade. Fortunately it was the bottom base and its still usable best of all I made 2 sets. Here is an image of the shells on a GP38 front end.




One front case was missing as I lost it but I have since found it. (Crawling around for 10 minutes). I need to make the lens and then some kind of mount for it. The back piece snaps into the front and holds pretty good. Over all it was a good exercise.


I will eventually get to the station platform and have a working platform light. I pulled out my 20-806 to give me something to think about as I do this. I think its possible to replicate the existing light with a working LED. The only issue is how much can you increase the size without affecting the visual component.


In any case I need to get these HO pieces done first.




Oh yeah, this as insane. To put thing in perspective, the smaller LED are on 32 gauge wire.

This seems interesting. Any chance you can put the pictures back up?
