Lidl have those magnifier led lamps for 36 euro in again. Has anyone used these lamps? Are they any good?

The light from them is really quite good. The arm and clamp seem sturdy. When you move the head of it there isn't much bounce back, as in it stays where you put it.
The magnifier seems good too but I haven't used it much yet.

Excellent,just got one for 35. Well worth the money when compared to what`s available elsewhere. My gig is 1/72 and the white light from this is ideal. :o)b

I have two daylight type lamps over head so light is not the issue. I am thinking this will somehow help with 1/35 figure painting? So kind of more interested in that magnifier bit too lol.


I'm hoping it could paint the faces for me he he. Am I wrong thinking this is what it is for?

Thanks guys

The magnifier ,particularly with the lights around it is ideal for detail painting. But beware of the tunnel vision i have knocked over more bottles and other bits using a magnifier.
