FIX YOUR LIGHTS

Model Rail (UK) - - WORKBENCH -

gen­er­ally speak­ing, there is only one way to fix a minia­ture street light to your lay­out: drill a hole through the base­board, feed the wires through and fix the post with PVA glue. Lights from gauge­mas­ter and Wood­land Scen­ics have a rigid metal ‘pin’, through which the wires pass, that needs to be fixed in a hole in the base­board. how­ever, other man­u­fac­tur­ers have de­vised their own ways of fix­ing the lamps in place. At­las, for ex­am­ple, has a screw thread and nut arrangemen­t, whereas Viessmann uses a plug. When drilling a hole, make sure you get the bit size right. Too small and your light won’t fit; too big and your light will wob­ble about. A set of cal­lipers will be a big help. You can dis­guise the base of the light with scat­ter.
