I did have a question for you. What are you using for your hanging lanterns in the Boot Hill Cemetery? They sure look good.

Doc Tom



Tom, that's a 3mm yellow flickering LED hanging from the tree with some bits from my scrapbox to make it look like a lantern. The wiring and resistor are hidden inside the tree trunk - so it's basically a lamp disguised as a tree!




Thanks Dave. Sounds very doable. Going to hang some kerosene lanterns in my 1910 Backwoods Engine House (no electricity @ the EH is way out in the boonies) and the flickering LED should work.Will give it a go. Doc Tom

Here's one of my lanterns that I built to sit on a barrel.









If I want a hanging lantern, I build it upside down and paint the diodes and base of the LED black to resemble a hanging wire like on the front of the saloon:

Those pics explain the whole process very nicely. I am learning a lot from your posts.

I did this foam rock carving from stacked 1 inch blue foam using your techniques with a dremel tool. I did color it to represent the limestone in the Appalachian mountains but it is your technique shipped to the east.



Thanks for all your help and willingness to teach.

Thanks Dave for the tutorial. It's a object/techniques which I for sure will use in my dioramas.
