  1. Curiosity about 1/2" scale

    For the office, it is attached under the desk (the desk itself was sealed up long ago). For the dining room, there is a small rectangle of wood glued behind the little Eastlake side table...that is where the battery is. For the spare room (in my gallery), it is in the hutch. For the small bedroom (in my gallery), it is behind the vanity. I needed to make the tiny switch and battery holder accessible but hidden. I have the rest of the house wired with ambient LED lighting that is hardwired through the house as I built it. But these lights were a later addition after the house was complete.
  2. Curiosity about 1/2" scale

    Handmade lights installed! 1:24 lights are hard to come by and with limited selection so I highly recommend trying this out. It was also super economical to use 3D printed lamp bases and LED lights. There are also now super small batteries so you can hide them easier (I challenge you to find where I hid mine!). Here are a couple of installations - see my 1:24 Victorian Townhouse gallery for more.

    WOW WOW WOW!!! Beautiful!
  9. 1/144 Northeastern scale kits collection

    I bought this Northeastern Scale Models 1:144 Beacon Hill kit when they were closing shop a few years ago. I didn't realize what a deal I got. I always wanted to build my very own Beacon Hill and knew this was probably as close as I would get! If I had known that these kits were so good (everything was made of wood - all different thicknesses and types - such good quality), I would have bought more.

    I couldn't resist tricking out the inside...1:48 wallpaper surprisingly works!
  11. 1:144 Beacon Hill Exterior

    From the album Little Projects

    I always wanted to build my very own Beacon Hill and this is probably as close as I'll get! LOL. This was an incredible kit by the (now sadly) defunct Northeastern Scale Models. If I had known that these kits were so good (everything was made of wood - all different thicknesses and types), I would have bought more!
  12. Curiosity about 1/2" scale

    Yes - Shellie from MiniEtchers. I think if you email her she can put 1:24 together. If I remember correctly, I got them in an online mini show that she was doing. It is also possible to order just the 3D printed lamp and shade if you have LED lights. I have a bunch of LED supplies from Evan Designs that I forgot I had already. I used them for ambient lighting on the Lisa since is gets pretty dark inside. Anyone else have any cool half scale projects going on?
  13. Lit up Victorian Lamps 1:24

    From the album 1:24 Victorian Townhouse

    Next step: Building some furniture to hide the batteries and wires for each one!
  14. Curiosity about 1/2" scale

    I've been working on some functional Victorian lamps for my 1:24 LDD Lisa. The kits were 3D printed from Shellie N., using LED lighting. I used a combination of fabric, lace, and paint to make them frilly like my Google Images Victorian inspirations. Now I have to build some furniture/trunks to hide the battery and wiring for each one.... They look a bit better in person than the photos!
