You do realize soldering LEDs and using a 6v wall war to power them is dirt cheap

This method requires no tools and is super simple. Could probably do it in a different way, but to be able to light up your city in less than 10 minutes is fun!

Beautiful looking model! In the past I just used old white led Christmas lights.

How long have you been working on your model?

Have a great day! :-)
