Fibre optics and LED lighting at LEGOLAND project in Dallas, Texas

It's always a pleasure to work with acknowledged experts in their field, so we were delighted to be able to supply the skilled modelmakers of LEGOLAND Windsor with some lighting components for a project that they had been commissioned to do at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Grapevine, Texas.

The project was in the 1 to 45th scale miniland  area within this popular visitor attraction near Dallas.

"We used your LED tapes in warm white and pure (cool) white to simulate lighting in the various types of model buildings," explained Guy Bagley
Chief Modelmaker of Lego Studios Windsor. "Warm white to denote domestic lighting and pure white for sports arenas etc.

"The street lights and other accessory lighting were supplied by your LED driven fibre optic units - perfect for the task!," he added.

These LED fibre optic light sources are compact units which we recommend to customers where a small size is a prerequisite. They don't offer the versatility of a halogen light source with its large fibre capacity and twinkle and colour options, but they do fit the bill in some circumstances.
