R0-D4 dome upgrade 2017 - 1.4 - LED panel

I installed a second diffuser panel (plastic cut out of a large Milk bottle) to help reduce the LED's hot-spots. After testing the LED's in the last post R0-D4 dome upgrade 2017 - 1.3, I still wasn't sure if I liked the amount of flashing. It looked a bit too much.

So I removed all the 3mm ones and wired up just the five tri-colour LED's. I then hot glued them around the outside of the screen to help distribute their light. Having them face on was no good as these are clear type ones.


This seams to give a more subtle, subdued light display.

And here they are viewed from the inside.
