Try these.

This guy Henry is a good friend of mine and will treat you right! He makes sure his customers are completely satisified. These LED lights are bright, can be cut into three LED sections or kept in their full length.

The strips also have an adhesive backing to make mounting these lights easy, convenient, and easy to conceal. Tell Henry that Bert "Model Maker" told you about his lights.

I have to admit, I've had incredible luck getting various LEDs on eBay out of China and Hong Kong for next to nothing. They can really spruce up any model that needs lighting.

I'm about to embark on two major projects that will probably use at least 100 LEDs each. If you see a puff of blue smoke coming from the direction of Connecticut, don't worry, I just plugged something in to test.

Alex, what type of supports did you use on your horizontal Bandai Saturn V? I am wanting to display my 1:100 Famemaster 4D Saturn horizontally also.

All your models are terrific and the LED's add a great wow factor.

Those supports came with the Bandai Saturn V model.

Yep, SuperKungFu was right they are part of the Bandai package.

I am sure that with a little effort they are not difficult to do. Wish you luck.

Check out this photo of my 1:144 N1. I wanted something similar to my Bandai Saturn stands so I made some out of brass tubing (soldered together) and painted black.

Another one of my LED lit models is a Skilcraft 1:72 scale Hubble Space Telescope (HST).

This model was built by Pascal Hecker and coated with one layer of copper plating then coated with two layers of silver. It is lit up with four Micro LEDs and a copy of a Sally Ride signed picture is set in the background.

Has anyone got a current eBay link for these 45 degree LEDs? The one mentioned earlier in the thread has expired. Thanks.

Thanks Pascal and Norman, BrianB unfortunately these LEDs are out of stock at the moment as I bought the last dozen he had but he promised me that he will re-stock them in a few weeks time. Here is his eBay listing.
