Lights for the 76023 Tumbler
The only options I've found from other manufacturers is light kits that only light up the 8x front lights in different color options (I would prefer the cool bright white)
I'd like to also have warm white strips or some sort of lights for the interior, and a flickering light for the jet nozzle, and maybe more I'm not sure I just started thinking about it....
Thanks for the message-- we don't have this model in our shop but I downloaded the instructions tonight and had a quick look through. This looks like it would be VERY easy to light up using our off-the-shelf parts. The headlights use LEGO "headlight" bricks so placing our Pico LEDs inside would be a piece of cake. We have cool white Picos so no issue there.
For the interior, maybe a blue Pico LED or two? There's a crossbar that runs along the top of the roof in the center between the seats-- a Pico LED or two under there, held in place with a transparent boat stud, would do the trick. Possibly also look at a few flashing red Picos somewhere down under the dash, by the screens?
As for the engine in back, that's just a barrel on top of a plate, so one of our flickering orange Pico LEDs would fit perfectly there.
I assume there's room inside to hide one of our 3xAA battery packs? Or would you want to have it USB-powered instead?
If this sounds good to you in terms of a setup, let me know and I can make up a quick custom pack for you.
Because of the size of the interior, and how it is kinda split up, do you think 3x pico leds would be better, or too much? I attached a pic, i could place them on the underside of the marked areas with clear 2x2 sliders/boat studs.
I like the idea of one or two red blinking ones, somewhere in the bottom of the cockpit (also marked in the pic). Or were you thinking on the throttle lever or under the transparent red grill in the center console?
If I put some lego fire pieces in the barrel at the rear, would the 1x pico still be bright enough?
The battery pack will be fine. What are the overall dimensions of the battery pack? If i can't hide it in the set, I know I can hide it in the base of my display case.
Thanks for all of your assistance!!
William C Cheezum Jr Thanks for the photo. I think you could position the lights internally wherever worked the best for you. Without having the set myself, it's hard to tell what position would be best, even with photos.
Here are the battery back dimensions:
Dimensions: 6x9x3 LEGO® studs (LxWxH), or 2.75x1.875x0.75 inches
RE: the fire pieces, if you were able to position them directly on top of the flickering Pico LED, the light would illuminate the flame pieces nicely.
What do you think?
