Trapped

May 15, 2021

Two HO scale (1:87) figures trapped in a light bulb. One is swinging on the filament, while the other failing at climbing out. Probably my most frustrating photo. Everything was difficult. Removing he metal base, breaking the bulb to get the tube out, and trying to get the guys to stay in place. The climber guy kept sliding down the bulb, leaving a smear of museum wax. The guy on the filament kept falling so he was upside down. I put the whole thing away for a couple of weeks and didn’t think I’d go back to it. Eventually I gave it another shot, and this was a result.

It’s amazing how you can clean the bulb, and within a minute, it’s covered in specs of dust and cat and dog hairs. Sigh ...
