Torchlight for Lost action figures
I've been dreaming of this one for awhile, I finally got some time to try it. I took apart a cheap votive flickering LED candle for it's flame dome, bulb and switch. I replaced the coin sized battery with 3 1.4v hearing aid batteries so they could be stacked in a plastic tube I found. The scale may be a bit off, it's a thick torch, but that's about as small as it gets with those batteries. I'll keep experimenting with it, and also find a way to make it look more like a tree branch.
I dig the switch especially...
I tried an earlier version that was a thinner torch (a drilled out tree stick) but it meant having the batteries outside the torch attached with wires with the idea that you could hide the battery pack in a backpack or sidebag.
