TBH it looks like you gone from Zero to Hero in the past 10 months AlanI didnt know a thing 10 months ago about all this arduino stuff, I've gone from zero to this in a few months. I am willing to help if yu want to have a bash, or I can do one for you. Im in Leeds, helps if you're nearby?
Hey not too far away - get down to Leeds for a weekend and we can play some pinball and also put together a display circuit. the arduino Nano boards are more than eough for these sorrt of projects. If you want to do LED strings andd then LCD or 7 segment displays then an arduino Uno or even the Mega boards are a bit more meaty and have more inputs and outputs. The nano boards are like £3 each, then mega boards £8 - so none break the bank.TBH it looks like you gone from Zero to Hero in the past 10 months Alan
I’m in Sunderland which is not quite local enough to pop in and if it was I’d be having a bash on your LOTR which has eluded me over the years and of course POTC . Lucky you!
As for the light box the woodwork side would be a doddle for me and TBH I would love to have a bash on the lighting as it sounds like it will either stimulate my brain cells (what little I have) or drive me nuts hehe
Do I order any specific Arduino board and are those string leds the best option after your experiments over the past month
