    From the album: Making mini stuff

    More mini electronic experiments ! This is my attempt at one of those blob-kitty shaped night lamp for children. I encased a rgb led in a big blob of hot melt glue, leaving only the outputs pins behind. Now I can make it change color with an external arduino ! I need to see if I can use smth smaller that could be hidden in a bedside table. Oh, and its much less bright in reality. Hotmelt glue really gives soft diffused light.
  2. Help! I started my first dollhouse and FINALLY got to a finishing point after about a year and a half. There are still a few minor things that need done but it’s finished enough for now (I needed to finish it by Xmas for my daughter). I have made dozens of little 1:24 models in the past and am a little knowledgable in electrical (aircraft electrician over a decade ago) but have since become rusty in the topic. I opted to install 6, small LED lights into the dollhouse, connected by a series of 9v batteries. Since my other smaller models have included similar setups with the LEDs and batteries, I didn’t think this would be an impossible task. I have ordered 9V lights and hardwired them into the house, connecting them in series to 6, 9v battery housing and a switch. It had seemed a bit of overkill to me, since the smaller models often used a single AA battery for often up to 4-5 bright lights. Except, it was very dim (which I don’t mind too much, as it’s more for effect anyway) and lasted maybe 30 minutes before dying. I’m lost now on what to do. I would have to completely cut into the house and moulding to replace the wiring. Thoughts? Did I completely mess this up? Help!! I will try to post pictures of the setup.
  3. Good day! This is my first post in the forum - go easy on me! I'm an absolute beginner, currently building a 1:18 scale recreation of a local heritage house that was torn down 4 years ago. So far things are going well, but like MANY miniature newbies, I am absolutely confused by the wiring aspect of the build. I have done as much internet research and forum reading as I can, but I'm still not sure if I'm doing the correct thing. So, here it goes. These are my supplies: Cir-Kit Basic Wiring Kit Transformer (FIFODR® 12V 5A 60W DC Power Supply Adapter(Input 110V-220V,Output 12 Volt 5 Amp 60 Watt) DC Converter LED Driver Lighting Transformer for 12V 5A Flexible/Rigid 5050/3528/2835/5630/5730 LED Tape Strip Light FD-ADP60W) Lights (Pre Wired DC 9-12V 3mm Water Clear LED Diodes White Light) First question: Will the lights I purchased work with the tape wire kit? Second question: I will obviously need to purchase extension wire for the lights - what type of wire am I looking for? Third question: My house is mostly foam core on the inside, but the outside walls will be wood. I'm thinking of only installing the tape wire to the wood outer structure and laying/hiding the wire through the house, linking to the outside tape wire (does that make sense?). Will that work? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!! Cheers Jen
  4. I'm working on a new 1:48-scale dollhouse and I'd like to have plenty of lights inside. Plus I'd like to have some 'canned lights' coming out of the ceiling in the kitchen work area. But I was worried about needing the lights in such confined and small spaces that getting the wood walls/ceilings might be dangerous. I used a 6-light set of battery-operated LED lights for a smaller 1:48-scale house and they worked fine but with this house there will be a lot more lights. I'm thinking at least a dozen, possibly even up to 16 or more with the kitchen lights. Has anyone done the larger-scale lighting with battery-operated LED lights? The 6-light battery-operated set I used had a 'coin' cell battery. But would that be enough for 16 lights? Maybe even 18 lights? I'm still working on the blueprints right now but now is the time to figure this out. I'd appreciate any hints. I purchased my last two sets of the battery-operated LED lights from Evans Designs - any other suggestions?
  5. This looks amazing! I am going to have to give the system a try! Had to share! Light Genie is a wireless miniature-lighting control system. The transmitter/receiver combination operates at 2.4 GHz and has an operating range up to 90 feet. The receiver has 12 outputs grouped into 5 zones, and controls up to 24 miniature light bulbs or 48+ LED's. Each zone independently turns lights on and off, and dims or brightens them. Light Genie offers more than 20 different lighting effects, including sequential flashing, strobe lighting, fire effect, double strobe, and random flash. Two zones can control a complete traffic light system. Light Genie works flawlessly in tunnels, and penetrates walls without loss of signal. Multiple Genies can be used at the same time without cross interference.

  6. I picked up a poorly constructed dollhouse from a friend about a year ago. It was missing a few pieces and was completely glued together without first sanding and painting the wood. I'm about 100 hours into rebuilding this thing - its both therapeutic and stressful at the same time. The rooms are pretty deep making them poorly lit, I figured adding lighting would really spruce things up. While searching for lighting kits pretty much everything out there is made to plug into the wall for power. I plan on giving the house to my daughter, currently 3 years old (likely to be 20 before this thing is done) - plugging it in would be an accident waiting to happen. I decided the only safe way to light the house up would be with a rechargeable battery. After some careful research I decided to go with an IMR Li-on 18650 Battery. Being lithium it can hold plenty of juice and is "IMR" which is somehow safer. My knowledge of battery chemistry is greatly lacking. I built a simple circuit to connect the battery to surface mount LED lights. The LEDs were then inserted into the ceiling of each room. I hid the wiring by chiseling grooves into the walls and spackling over them. All the wires terminate at a single point in the roof at which I'm going to build some sort of a box to enclose everything and somehow make it look like its supposed to be there. I still have hours of spackling and sanding to do, but i figured I would share my progress.
  7. From the album: Christmas Surprise for our niece

    A $15 garage sale find that I decided to "build" for my niece (now that I have the time, ha ha). Young nieces don't care that the roof and front porch aren't on, or that the door is missing - just that it is three shades of pink and it's a dollhouse! Finishing it this week during Christmas break. The best part was find a string on miniature LED lights and miniature iridescent tinsel with tiny plastic white snowflakes at Craft Mart. We presented it to her Christmas day, and the exhilaration of a running jump and hug so tight I could not breathe was priceless... Thank you to everyone who kept me going through un-square pieces and crooked corner posts. I discovered the wonders of spackling compound, glue and paint and bless the dollar store for sanding blocks! I am so thankful for this forum.
  8. From the album: A haunted Glencroft

    Made from a cork cage and some Dollar Store items. The skull is from one of the 5.5 inch skeletons that come 4-6 on a card. The light is from a battery powered L.E.D. t-lite candle that I dismantled and reconstructed to fit the lantern (cork cage).
