In The Works

Out shopping for more vintage finds last week we stumbled across this wonderful old lantern. It will be ambitious but we are going to mount a beetle inside and use some fiber optics to light it.

In all it's glory.

Taken apart for its first cleaning.

So far its cleaning up nicely. But I'm sure this project will present some unique challenges. Will keep everyone posted as to how it is working out...hopefully we can have it all sorted before Seattle's SteamCon II.

If you have any ideas feel free to share either here or on facebook.
