Lighting options.

Post by Oze-build » Thu Jan 09, 2014 12:30 pm

Hi guys and gals,

Just wondering if anybody has any thought on what appears to be the two main lighting options for 1701 (refit or A) 1:350 from polar lights... Either the kit from monsters in motion or the lighting from trek lighting ????

They both appear to be about the same price...give or take...

But wondered what other peoples views are on the two kits.

I believe the trek lights one takes 6 to 8 weeks... Don't mind the wait if it's worth it.

Thanks heaps...

I did a Trek Modeler lighting kit for my 350.

About the only recommendation: Even when the instructions say that you don't need a resistor in series with an LED, put one in anyways.

:evil: After replacing the LED 3 freaking times from an assembled model later...

Thanks heaps... Electronics are not my strong point... So I plan to go with either kit...

I'd like to here from somebody who's used the monsters in motion kit, but I do like the look of the effects from trek modellers.
