Light Over the Door

These are readily available in N Scale, but not Z, so I had to make mine from scratch.



I started with a piece of brass wire bent to shape.

I soldered one terminal of a warm white 0402 SMD LED to the end of the wire.

Then I soldered a piece of very fine wire to the other terminal of the LED.

I carefully bonded the fine wire to the side of the arm with super glue.

I then attached the smallest Ngineering lampshade they make.

This styrene escutcheon may be one of the tiniest parts I've ever fabricated.

The finished lamp was painted and ready to install over the door. Here it is compared to a Z Scale figure.
