5 Steps To Ordering A Bespoke Light Kit
In order to make a bespoke light kit that will best suit your requirements, I'll need the following information:
1) Power Source
You can choose from either a standard 9v battery clip, a 9v battery clip with separate switch, a 9v battery box with integrated switch, a screw terminal connector (for patching into existing circuits), and for smaller kits a Futaba lead.
2) Power & Switch Lead
Decide where you will be housing the battery in the model or display stand, and decide on the length of the wire lead needed from that point to the point from where the leds branch out. If choosing a seperate slide switch, I also need the length of the switch wire.
3) Individual LED Wires
Each LED has its own wire run. I will need the wire lengths required for each led (from the point where the leds branch out, to the led itself). Remember to allow enough wire length for ease of fitting in your model. If in doubt, allow a bit extra.
4) LED Colours & Effects
I will need the required led colour for each wire run, and if they are static or flashing, or if other effects are needed.
5) LED Sizes & Fixings
Finally I'll need the diameter of each led (most commonly 3mm, 5mm or 10mm), and if led clips are required for fitting.
As standard, we supply 1mm fibre optics at 100mm usable lengths in bundles of five or ten - connected to your chosen light source. When ordering fibre optics, I need the quantity of fibres required and the lengths of the fibres (if other than 100mm), along with the required colour.
