Tape Wire - What lights do I use?
Good day! This is my first post in the forum - go easy on me!
I'm an absolute beginner, currently building a 1:18 scale recreation of a local heritage house that was torn down 4 years ago. So far things are going well, but like MANY miniature newbies, I am absolutely confused by the wiring aspect of the build.
I have done as much internet research and forum reading as I can, but I'm still not sure if I'm doing the correct thing.
So, here it goes. These are my supplies:
Cir-Kit Basic Wiring Kit
Transformer (FIFODR® 12V 5A 60W DC Power Supply Adapter(Input 110V-220V,Output 12 Volt 5 Amp 60 Watt) DC Converter LED Driver Lighting Transformer for 12V 5A Flexible/Rigid 5050/3528/2835/5630/5730 LED Tape Strip Light FD-ADP60W)
Lights (Pre Wired DC 9-12V 3mm Water Clear LED Diodes White Light)
First question: Will the lights I purchased work with the tape wire kit?
Second question: I will obviously need to purchase extension wire for the lights - what type of wire am I looking for?
Third question: My house is mostly foam core on the inside, but the outside walls will be wood. I'm thinking of only installing the tape wire to the wood outer structure and laying/hiding the wire through the house, linking to the outside tape wire (does that make sense?). Will that work?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!
Wall Sconces and adapters -Rookie mistake
OH MY. I'm a doof. I took a loooong break from minis and am firing it up again, but have had to refresh on many things. I did the biggest rookie mistake. i spent so much wasted time meticulously installing wall sconces so the wires were under wallpaper and just realized they make ADAPTERS for them. i'd only done ceiling lights and wall plugs. duh me. They look good but such a royal pain to noodle it all through the hardest way possible. ugh
