A local model maker created really nice replica gems (green, red) with silicon RTV molds and pourable casting resin (epoxy I think) for Pampanito.  If you do create drawings, please share.

Ha!  I should have known Rich would have something up his sleeve!  I was actually looking for drawings of the red/green plastic pieces though.

Jim, a guy made some replacement lenses for the Drum as well. People steal them like crazy.

And our tree is lit constantly... so you don't miss it!  But in all the years we've been open for tours, nobody has taken one, thank God. I think it has something to do with how the public perceives your ship...  :knuppel2:   And how well armed the tourguides are...    :police:
