SMD LED HO Conductor & Lantern

SMD LED HO Conductor & Lantern

This shows how I drill a HO conductor figure to thread fine wires through the body and make a SMD LED working hand lantern.
Add a lighting decoder to turn the lamp on or off will see him on a caboose later.

    Very nicely done and explained. Thank you for sharing your techniques. Do the smaller 0402 LEDs come in a warm white color similar to the 0603 you show in the baggie?
