    Hi Gang!
    I bought a new Dremel 400 the other day and as I was unpacking it, being the packrat that I am, I tossed the plastic trays that the little tools were packed in on the workbench for deposit in the “Sometime Made” box later.
    When I got around to straitening up the bench just enough to get one of my projects in working position. I got to looking at the plastic trays and decided to toss them and did. The project is a building that I wanted to light up. Thin I thought it would look kind of strange, just an empty building, It needed something to be light up for.
    I got my “Sometime Made” box out and did not find anything that looked like it might be machinery of some type. Awhile later I happened to glance down at the trashcan where the plastic trays now resided and had a brain fa&%. The rest is history I thank the pictures tell it all.

    PS. DON”T THROW ANYTHING AWAY!!!
    Goat.

    I finely got my pictures to upload.
    I had to go to my laptop to do it.
    I deleted all my cookies on my other computer and it still didn’t work
    Any one had a similar experience?

    Neat idea...Can't wait to see the building lit up.

    Oh...By the Way.."Don't throw anything out", is rule number one in model railroading.
