Somewhere in the Pacific……….
September 29, 2014 in Uncategorized
There is this isolated cove where the smaller boats and landing craft traded supplies and what ever contraband they could get there hand on. Mostly fruit, beer , and movies. Commander McHale and his crew have been known to be regulars. Highly guarded and with the latest high powered radios many thought the Pacific war was controlled from this tiny coral island. Corn Cobb pipes have been found strewed around. But that probably is just a coincidence.
My diorama is made from coffee sticks, and basswood. The roof is (paper) corrugated aluminium roofing. A single LED was wired underground to the lamp on the dock. And the (are you ready for this) lighting for the command post is illuminated with battery powered pumpkin LED candles, so they flicker like a lantern, A really cool effect.
Now the ship… That”s for a later post.
I hope I can take you here for just a moment. If not, have a beer and come on back later. Haa! Haa!
