Using LED’s and Fiber Optics for Scale Models

I have built many models using LED’s and fiber optic lines to illuminate them. I have many inquiries on how do I add the illumination and where do I get the LED’s and fiber optics to do it. I have created a tutorial that explains all the methods I use as well as some basic electronics on wiring up the LED’s.

Below are the links for the tutorial as well as the websites I recommend for sourcing the LED’s and fiber optics.

    I’m going to be working on the 350 scale titanic. Never put lights in a model. In train cars but not models. Dont want to do alot but I want this ship to light up. Any info to help me that you may have would be greatly appreciated. I dont know how you hook the lights to the power. I’m used to the train track. Sandra
