Add Light to Work Settings with a Miniature Trouble Light

By January 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Lamps are useful in miniature and model scenes for pulling a viewers eye, but regular lamps don't always suit the scene. If you need to shine a tiny bit of light in an attic, the dim recesses of a model or die cast car engine, or under a sink to show off your scale plumbing, this miniature trouble light might be your best fit.

Made from an LED, the light can be set close to plastic models without creating heat problems. You can run it off a battery for an easy way to highlight your modified or highly detailed car engines, as well as small workspace models, or tiny details, like the mouse family who live in your miniature attic. Choose an LED size which suits your model scale, as these lights can be made for 1:24 and 1:18 scale cars as well as for larger scales.
