So, I decided I would make one on my own. And to top it off I am going to make it Light Up!
What This project is is a Lego Beatles Abbey Road replica made in Lego and can turn off and on with a flick of a switch.
The idea for this came from many Beatles/Lego replicas online but, when i saw the real abbey road with the street lamps here I got an idea to make something better and unique.
This is a tad difficult to make if its your first time with electronics (like me) so if you spot anything that could have been done better please say so in the comments.
Ok, lets get started on building this!
