    Led lights

    Well the helmets definately look great and the cabinet too! But I presume they are led flooding lights 10w -30 w?. So they put out a strong amount of light and also some heat, when left lit.
    Color like paint fades more difficult than fabrics so i think just lighting them up onve in a while wont harm them.
    I am not sure if i would use them on Uniform or cloth items though.

    Anyway Fantastic collection of helmets!!!

    Fantastic work! beautiful ships!
    The first cabinet that has a wooden frame could be ideal for the led stripe, because you can hide it from eyesight and have a great equal lighting of the ship!!

    Exactly gregM! I did my research too. And as i wrote further down in my older post, the result is very satisfying because it spreads a soft warm light equally everywhere that also adds to the correct atmosphere of the display. Its very cheap (3.00 euros) and just needs 3 AAA Batteries. No cords and connections needed. Also no tools to place it. It is autoadhesive. I believe its the best idea for a cabinet.

    Cabinet Led striped lightning

    Thank you for your fine words Gentlemen!

    jacquesf
    Can you show a pic of the actual led cord or what brand it is. I am looking for myself. Yours gave me ideas. J

    Hi Jaquesf !
    Here is a photo of the device. It is a battery operated Led-Stripe auto adhesive 230cm in length. It cost me 2,99 euros!

    Nice display. But do these LED lights put out any UV??

    Hi Douglas!
    The light i bought has no strong leds. Its effect is an even, dim lightning of a warm white and doesnt produce heat I find it ideal for the cabinet and it gives also a nice atmosphere. As for UV it must be really minimal to zero against all other light sources.


    Here you can see my humble collection if you are interesetd! Have a great day!

    I tried lots of different lights before i ended up with the led cord.
    All other solutions either produced heat or were too strong, or lit up only part of the uniform.
    The light now is really soft, doesnt produce any warmth, is out of sight (not blending you) and uses only 2 Batteries, so it is not dependend on electro cords etc.

    Auto Adhesive led light cord

    I recently bought and installed an auto adhesive led light cord. I Used it behind the glass door frame of my wooden cabinet in which i have my infantry parade uniform. It was very simply to attach, gives a soft warm light and is hidden from eysight. It is operated with 2 AAA batteries, so, really no cost at all and ultra satisfactory! I attach a photo made with no other lights on or flash.
