Resistor value on the 1:350 TOS Enterprise lighting kit?

Post by MillenniumFalsehood » Wed May 22, 2013 2:30 am

I'm doing a bit of custom work on the lighting system for my 1:350 TOS Enterprise and I'm replacing the lighting strips for the nacelle grilles with an LED light tube. The thing works by pointing two LEDs into the ends of a plastic tube to disperse the light evenly along the length of the tube. I'll be adding a couple more LEDs in the fronts of each grille for more light.

Thing is, I need to know what the value for the resistor on the strip is. It is SMT, and has the number 131 on it.

That should work out to be 130 ohms.

This is a good site for working out SMD codes:
