Product Description
Vintage style industrial flush-mount lamp-shades in HO scale (1:87), ready for installing nano LEDs, set of 40.
Lampshade diameter: 6 mm (scale 
20.5 inches), lamp height from bottom of shade to wall flush mounting: 6.133 mm (scale 21 inches).

The lamps are sprued in a tree so they do not get misplaced or damaged in the manufacturing process. Use a sprue cutter to snip each lamp off the frame at the flush mount fitting. Each lamp stem has a 0.4mm hole through it that may require some cleaning by hand with piano wire or a 0.4mm drill bit, to remove any left over plastic powder. The hole is wide enough to pass a pair of enameled wires ("magnet wire") of 32 to 48 gauge, to connect to the nano LED.

To make a realistic looking bulb out of a nano LED, use warm white or amber LEDs of 0402 or 0603 size, and dip each LED in clear or preferably translucent glue, such as gorilla glue, after soldering the magnet wires to it. The glue should leave a somewhat globular drop around the LED, thus making it look like a classic light bulb once it dries. Pass the magnet wires through the stem of the lamp, such as to partially insert the LED into the lampshade. At the ether end, hook the wires to your power source in series with an appropriate resistor.

The model arrives unpainted and can be ordered in translucent Smooth or Smoothest Fine Detail plastic. For realism, it needs to be painted and a nano LED added, before installation into your model railroad layout or diorama.

A smaller sized version (14 inch scale diameter of shade) is also available: Industrial Lampshades, HO scale x40
