The other afternoon I built a couple of street lamps -
Built from 0.6mm. 1mm and 1.6mm metal tube with the base from 1/8th Plastruct. The head is shaped from microstrip and the access panel from paper.
Regular visitors will know that because the layout is set in the day, I dont need the lights to work however I fancied a working one to match the one above. Of course the finished item had to look identical so -
The inner workings, A surface mount LED soldered to the 0.6mm tube with a single strand of coated wire fed down the middle.
The finished lamp as lit. I am assuming that one lamp has gone a but wrong and will stay on!
