Overhead Light Frames


My next layout covered an area of 4'x8' and I wanted to have LED light strips spanning over the modules that made up that layout. So, I bought these LED strips.

I used several pieces of the aluminum window-screen frames to build these cantilevered ones that could hold LED light strips over the layout.

I took two full 7-foot frames, and then glued a strip of LEDs to each using 5-minute epoxy, which has proven to be very effective even with the warm LEDs. This provided enough lighting for the entire layout.
