derex3592 Posted February 1 Share Posted February 1 I have used these in my Bandai Star Destroyer, the Runabout, and the Titanic. They come with a dimmer knob, and they are marked where you can cut them, You can airbrush Tamiya clear acrylics straight onto them and also use cheap Home Depot spray can frost to make them look smoother. I'm SO not good at math so I'm not they guy who's gonna figure out resistance, wired in parallel or series, my dad knew all that and tried to teach me as a teenager, yeh I blew him off and now I regret it. Now I don't do battery power, I cut the wires and re-solder them the way I need them to be to get into the model have the dimmer switch about 6-8 inches away from the model then a few feet of cable to get to wall power. I will say if you pay more money from hobby websites you get more LED's per square inch Double Density I think they are called. Also I buy PRE-WIRED 12V LED's for things as well, the red bussards for the runabout for example. They work great and you don't have to put your own resistors on. All lights of any kind will eventually go out, I don't worry about it, if it happens it happens, just enjoy your kit lit up and turn it off if you aren't in the room or at home.
