Lighting Help!!!


Recommended Posts

Recently, I "G-Scale Weathered Brass Lamp 3mm Bulb:12 volt 60mA" from Locomotive Joe on eBay.  I plan to use the lamp on a build.  Although I have done dioramas before, I am new to lighting.  Where can I get a power supply for said lamp.  HELP!

Hi Chappy,

You've got several options here. You could go force transformer to take a mains supply down to 12v (might be over kill) or what I would do is go for a 9v battery and switch hidden either under the diorama or in something like a chest or behind a wall. That way you can swap or remove the matter easily.


Good luck
