We've all seen Monoliths lit up with LEDs.. Sure it's cool, but a handful of LEDs just aren't bright enough for my taste. So, instead, I rigged up my 'lith with a single 4" 45,000mcd CCFL tube, inverter, and 9v power source. It's turned on/off by a little red pushbutton on the bottom of the lith. Here are some pics of the wiring diagram and finished product. Enjoy.

Awesome...it truly does bring life to the model!
Did you use a purchased kit or did you have the CCFL tube and inverter laying around?
I got a kit for about $5 with the inverter and tube... It was meant for computer modding but I just cut off the molex connector and used electrical tape to connect the wires to the switch/battery connector.
You have done something excellent as well as exquisite! Well done... I hope I could light my my LRC! +rep
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Wow, that's one of the best light-up conversions I've ever seen. Rep for you!
The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
Sweet work man, its not that hard so more peopleshould be doing this to their monoliths and form armies of glowing goodness!
Thanks! I appreciate all the positive feedback. I agree, it really isn't hard to do... The toughest part was sawing out all the backing of the gauss rods, cutting out the squares in the bottom, and drilling the hold beneath the crystal. Of course this could have been a lot easier if I was using something more practical than an exacto knife...
yeah I've recently started to use electronics more often, my last project flopped somehow after the battery pack and the switch stopped working. but I'll get that shokk attack gun made someday!
But more people should really get into this stuff, it can make something so much more impressive, and who doesn't like a glowing monolith of doom?
