i guess these are from the remake from some times in the mid 1990.
I got loads and chose 8 of them and backed them onto a piece of card and used to have them on a shelf. they weren't getting looked at as much as i really wanted so recently i decided to see if i could make something more cool and useful.
This is how i went about making some film cell light boxes.
Step 1: Tools and Materials.
-craft knife or scalpel
-sand paper -soldering iron
-film cells of choice
-mount board or card stock
-large box frame 300mmx300mm
-paint for the frame (only if you want to change the colour)
-button or switch
-LED strip -resistors etc.
Step 2: Choosing your film strips.
the film cells i had were of three sizes 2 large ones and 3 each of medium and small.
i decided to use all of the one i had but split them into two groups.
one group of one long strip and three medium, the other group of the other large strip and the three small ones.
Step 3: Cutting the mount board.
i also measured out the size of the glass of the box frame as the card needed to be exactly the same size as the glass.
once i had all the measurements i drew out a large square the size of the glass and plotted out the four holes for the film cells.
I did this two times as each card will have different sized holes as the film cells for each frame are different.
once i had cut all the holes i placed the card in the box frame to make sure it all looked right.
