Scope rear

The rear scope box was again from 60th plastic card made into a basic rectangle, then angled pieces added to the sides and two end pieces made. Two pieces of half round large bore tube were added to the sides and covered in thin das clay, above these were added two pieces of plastruct tube with part of them covered with plastic coated copper wire and above these two pieces of evergreen tube.

In stages the das was added and shaped until the shape was close but over size, which allowed for final shaping and sanding. The eyepiece is from 40th card shaped and then covered in das and blended into the rear. The eyepiece detail is from a curtain ring and smaller pieces of plastic rod.
