Updated Dog House

I realized 2 days ago that the dog house I built was not large enough so I added a 1.5mm strip of styrene to the side and redid the supporting structure.


Having stopped modelling for a week due to a summer trip to Cuba I came back and continued where I left off building the photo-etched radar for the tower I build back on August 5th.

Radar Tower

Using photo-etched after market parts I built the radar tower to be eventually installed onto the dog house structure of the island. The fence on the top was particular challenging and ended up doing it twice.

Dog House

While the kit has a nice island structure it of course is not accurate to the Midway I visited. In the very early 80’s the island was extended with what was nick named the dog house. I used various types of styrene sheets to reproduce this structure using reference photos I had taken ok my trip to San Diego.
