3 Masted Square rigger  inside an Unique flashlight lamp:


A truly small model is this  3 masted square rigger, built inside a unique pocket flashlight lamp. The challenge here is to find the adequate paper for the sails (i.e. Japan silk paper). A trick is played by static electricity. If the paper is charged, it will have the tendency to fly from the mast to stick to the glass. Funny! The rigging was cut to size before mounting, and it is painting brush hairs. The town depicts a north european seaside village with main street and church. Please note each house measures 1mm width.
