Patriot Lighting is a major supplier of lights and lighting fixtures to professionals and do-it-yourselfers. Their products include interior and exterior lighting gear and they are a prominent source of solar-powered lights decorating gardens around the country. Patriot Lighting Supply is a fully assembled and decorated low-relief background structure perfect for that spot on the edge of an O gauge railroad, or to fill out a shallow spot in a city scene.
The basics: Patriot Lighting is a compact, but fully detailed facade. The front is 11 inches wide, 9-1/2 inches tall and a mere 2-3/4 inches deep. Although narrow, it has enough weight in the base to stand on its own without screws or glue. The model has 20 LEDs for exterior lighting. Power connections with the Menards 4.5-volt Plug & Play lighting system are on the left side of the building, or through a drop down pigtail connection.
To power the lights, check Menards SKUs 279-4061, 279-4062, or 279-4050. You may wish to consider the 8- or 9-piece Plug & Play accessory kits (SKU# 279-4035, 4681) and to serve multiple structures and vehicles. All are available separately.
Why you need this: The warehouse packs a lot of detail into a small space. The front has vertical slats, suggesting steel construction. The loading dock has a cinder block foundation. Details on the dock include a trash dumpster, a hand truck, a trash can, two workers, and Jack at the ready.
There is a first floor entrance with an awning. There is also a warehouse door. LEDs provide light for security. A stairway leads up to a second story door, which a worker is entering. There are four 8-pane windows on the front of the second level.
Atop the second floor is a cornice. LEDs are positioned behind it. This lights up the company sign above. The third level has two windows bracketing the Patriot Lighting Supply logo. Another cornice crowns that level. Both the right and left sides of the building have a decorative window at the second floor level.
Patriot Lighting offers you an interesting design and credible place to spot a delivery truck or even a boxcar without taking up excessive space. The lighting will make this stand out in your cityscape.
