I’m powering my lights using both sources, the mains plug for all the standard supplied lighting, and iv’e got 2 battery packs with rechargeable 9V batteries hidden inside where the supplied battery pack is supposed to go. 1 pack is for the main hold custom LED’s which I only need to switch on when I open the top off to look inside, and I have 1 pack leading to a switch inside one of the engine recesses to turn the cockpit fiber optics on whenever I want to.
The only one thing i’m worried about is battery corrosion if they’re left in for a long time, but at least on the plus side battery packs are cheap and can be replaced and there won’t be any direct damage to the model itself if that ever happens.
Hey Subzero, you wouldn’t have any plan or pics of your lighting setup would you ? I’m trying to work out how to power additional lighting for the cockpit and hold area. Not sure if you can PM on this forum ?
