0.5m x 2mm Side Glow Fibre Optic Light Tubing. This tube emits light along
its full length rather than at just the ends.
Fibre optic cable is ideal for illuminating and producing a wide range of lighting effects in small models. It can quickly and easily be used for spectacular effects lighting, car headlights, building lighting, nooks and crannies.
The material is a type of plastic so it can be cut easily with a sharp knife.
One bulb or led can be used as a light source for many optical fibres. White and coloured LEDs make an ideal light source.
The size of 2mm diameter is also a good choice for model railways layouts.
The fibre is very flexible and will bend to around 15mm radius and possibly even tighter curves than that, although if bent too tight it will become permanently bent.
LEDs make ideal light sources. A piece of heat shrink sleeve is ideal to hold the fibre in place at the end of the LED - although you can get away with nothing more sophisticated than a piece of sticky tape.
