AMT Enterprise with Lights and Sound
« on: October 15, 2017, 04:31:40 pm »
This is the 537 scale 'brick' pattern kit.

Does anyone know if the lights are LEDs or actually really small light bulbs?  The reason I ask is because they do not require resistors (at least none are with the kit) and more interesting, they do not seem to be polarity specific.  They will light no matter which lead is connected to positive or negative.  They will definitely burn out with too much voltage, but run off 4.5VDC and as I mentioned, with no resistors.

I'm starting to think these are bulbs not LEDs

They are small incandescent bulbs.  LEDs did not exist for hobby uses when that kit was produced.
Go ahead and replace them with LEDs.
