Finely detailed scale model miniature floodlight with adjustable angle
. Half the size of this other floodlight set
. Small enough to be suitable for 1:100 to 1:500 scale airport modeling as well.
Just add a 0402 SMD LED
, also known as a nano LED or pico LED (not included in this kit), for a very realistic looking tiny floodlight to light up your model railroad layout or diorama. This listing contains 25 sets
of floodlights, consisting of reflector and adjustable base! Can be used for HO Scale, N Scale, or Z Scale
, as well as for 1:100, 1:200 or 1:500 scale airport modeling
The reflector snaps into the base mount via the hemispherical studs on each side of the reflector, allowing adjustment of the floodlight angle from nearly horizontal to straight upward.
Simple assembly required: The base and reflector are sprued together in a frame. Cut the sprues off, sand the sprue points, then snap the pivots of the reflector into the holes in the base. You may want to cut the sprues of the base, at the frame end, so that the sprues themselves can be used as mounting pins. The sprue on the reflector must be cut as close to the reflector as possible, and the cut-away surface polished a bit by hand. For realism, paint the inside of the reflector with silver or metallic paint, and the outside black to prevent light leakage.
The floodlight reflector front aperture is 1.7 x 2.575 mm, and can fit SMD LEDs of size 0201
(0603 metric, picoLED) through to 0402
(1005 metric, nanoLED). Use epoxy glue or hot glue on the LED's connections to prevent the wires breaking off over time. Two holes big enough for fine magnet wire are provided at the back of the reflector and a wider hole for a pair of wires runs through the base of the mounting, to pass the LED wires through. Use a warm-white SMD LED for realistic "white" floodlight color, or an amber LED to simulate sodium vapor lamp floods used in some rail yards.
For an idea of size at your modeling scale of choice, the floodlight front aperture in these scales is approximately:
Only one supported material
- N Scale: 10 x 15 inch - Small size floodlight
- HO Scale: 6 x 9 inch - Small size floodlight / accent light
- Z Scale: 15 x 22 inch - Medium floodlight
