For those of you who are experienced with lighting, can you give a novice some idea on how many lights to use, and what exactly to use LEDs or mini lamps. I am currently painting/building an AMT/ERTL Reliant (as some of you know from the other thread) and haven't got to the lighting stage yet, but just wanted a little help on what to get etc. I have painted the insides black already, so I have done that. I understand LEDs need resistors to limit the flow of electricity so they don't burn out. I have bought most of the lights but am not sure if it is going to be enough to light it. I have bought 4 mini 6 volt lamps and 2 5mm Red LEDs and 2 5mm blue LEDs (Red is 200 MCD and blue is 2600 MCD). I have a 6 volt adapter and the end you use to plug the adapter in that I will add to the ship's lower hull. How many regular mini lamps am I going to need to light this thing? Also will 47 ohm reistors work or do I need to get higher ohm resistors for more light intensity? I am not going to add any of the running lights or anything, just the basic lighting as on impulse. Also I have 24 Gauge speaker wire, will this stuff work? Basicly anything you can tell me, would be benificial since I have not lit anything except the Bandai model enterprise, but there were instructions. Oh...and yes I have soldered quite a bit, that isn't a problem.
