Working deck lights
« on: April 29, 2009, 07:00:02 AM »
Does anyone know a UK source for fairly large working deck lights?

The Sir William Wallace paddle ferry that I'm building has two large deck lights to illuminate the decks, and I'd like to add these to the model as it would look impressive in a twilight sail...

Can anyone help?

Regards
Eddy

Thanks guys,

The ones Kim gave a link to are pretty much what I'm after, except that I need something a bit larger.... I can see that I'll probably end up making my own, but I wanted to try and save a bit of time so that I can get the model on the water for our Paddler Day in september.

Nevermind, if the model doesn't have all it's lights and other odds and ends fitted it's not the end of the world...

Regards
Eddy

Sadly no, Stuart....  I'll see if I can find one, but it may be a day or so as I'm out all day today and most of tomorrow. That's assuming I can find one of course! It's amazing that there are so few photos of these boats when even though they were used by thousands of people each day....

Are they like those supplied (apparently) with this mast? http://www.alwayshobbies.com/Store/Model-Boats/Fittings/Graupner-Mast-
1/20 scale so might be large enough, though they are non working it could be possible to fit high-brightness LEDs in them....
