I didn't see the light until I was already a man. By then, it was nothing to me but blinding!
As always giving credit where it is due. Thank you goes out to Suijin and Bryan. Both came up with the LED idea. Tremendous thank you to Suijin for being a fucking awesome assistant in helping put this thing together. Swear he's more excited about it than I am.
|Used hotwire to make a groove for the wires go into. Plan is to make the wires flush with the surface. Not have any wires hanging loose.|
|A switch will be placed on the far left side. It will be the positive off for the board. More about that later.|
|Suijin is soldering the secondary switch under the board. Scrapped the blue coating off the nail so it would make a good connection for the circuit.|
Monday nights work.
|Suijin put in the positive off switch last night. Cut away enough material so the bare wire isn't in contact with the styrofoam. More for safety to avoid burning down the diorama and Grand Tournament.|
|Suijin pulled this from a computer circuit board.|
|Behind the scenes wiring.|
|Hot glue to hold the wire down. If I ever need to build my deck plating bases again, which I will, I'll use a hot glue gun.|
|First LED of six soldered.|
|Blooper pic. This is the secondary switch. Turns out these magnets don't like heat from a soldering iron. The magnets were much weaker after applying heat. oops|
|Ripped off previous magnets and placed new ones with aluminum tape. Aluminum tape should be conductive enough to complete the circuit.|
|Will need to cut out more space for the wire nuts. Perhaps a slot for each wire nut.|
