When you don't know what else to do go play with boys...
Over the last couple of days I've been thinking about the best way to put a light in a display cabinet without wiring it to the main wiring for the house.
There are two main requirements: (1) a very small power source I could hide within/behind the cabinet somewhere (2) a light source that is bright but won't get hot. That led to two thoughts: (1) watch battery (2) LED lighting - voila here it is! Coin ceiling lights like those shown here in a 1:144 scale bakery and available for sale on a model makers website that primarily supplies "boy stuff". The link to the site is here.
They also have a range of other LED lighting for mini uses, as well as other potentially useful products, so it's a website well worth taking a look at.
And another great thing is that these guys WILL SHIP INTERNATIONALLY, AND they give a 2 year guarantee AND they'll replace the light if you break it during installation! All round good guys - I think I'm in love! ;)
I'm not sure if I should describe miniatures as a hobby or an obsession, but it's the best escape from the cares of the world that I know - and an opportunity to indulge a love of vintage decor without breaking the bank.
