It's about time for me to get moving on this year's special Camp Merz lantern. This one is starting out as a 228J from Gary Coleman (LakeGeorge):
100_3043.jpg 
The conversation went something like this- 
Gary: (Brings lantern over to Bill Sheehy's tent where I'm eating pancakes) Is this the kind of thing you could use to make your Light of Scouting?
Me: That's exactly the kind of thing I would make it from!
Gary: Well here, take it!

It took me a couple weeks to figure out why the vent wouldn't sit right; I should have figured out immediately that it was a 228F vent. So Thanks also to Greg (Rubing) for a 228H vent that actually fits.

Step one, then, is to remove the fuel that's in it so I can tear it down. I could just take the cap off and drain it, but...

This seems like a better way to start this one off!


NOTE: Every year of Scout Camp has its own theme. This years theme is Star Wars...

I’m sure my son who is both an Eagle Scout and a Star Wars fanatic will help me come up with a great globe design for your 2019 award.

This is a preliminary sketch for the front of the fount:

The extra year is me experimenting with hand drawing the style I want. I'm going to attempt to freehand this, so there's a lot of practice going on out of view. I'm currently thinking gold, on a black starfield.

Bill, that would definitely look cool on a globe. And maybe some X-Wing Fighters along with the Death Star in the background. Maybe even the Millennium Falcon. Heck I would even buy one.

It's black, with "stars". I'll let this dry for a few days, then start with the letters.

That's nice.  I've been thinking about having our Royal Ranger boys paint up a couple something special for lighting the entrance to our camp.  Never though about frosting something into the globe for that extra touch till I saw this. That's beautiful work on both sides.

Will, did you get the globe from Mr. Wilson yet?
