This is the 18' Curved-Neck Streetlight Kit with Incandescent LEDs (8-Pack) HO Scale Model Railroad Streetlight by Ngineering.
This kit includes all tubing, lampshades, wire, LEDs and instructions to build eight streetlights. This curved-neck streetlight is a replica of a very basic style that has been around for more than 75 years and is still manufactured today. It can be found in towns and cities, waterfront areas, industrial areas, trackside at train stations, parks, and residential areas.
When I think of a kit, I think of pre-molded parts that must be glued together and painted to make a complete model. This, however, is a bag of metal tubes of various widths which you must cut to the right length, bend into shape, and solder together. If this is how all Ngineering kits are, then I was simply unaware. I do not have the time to cut, bend, and solder a few metal tubes to make six matching street lights, so I returned this item and will look for something else. Unless you have a lot of spare time, are good with a soldering iron, and enjoy scratch building, which is essentially what this kit is, I would not recommend this product.
