Making a periscope

RELATED TOPICS: DETAILING
Looking for something to portray periscope glass on my Tamiya 1/35 scale M113, I discovered holographic paper at a local craft store. It has an image that changes when viewed from different angles, there are different colors, and it is thin and self-adhesive. It’s easy to cut to shape and glue in position. For the inside, I used aircraft formation-light decals; they’re about the right color of yellow to look like daylight coming through the periscope. When I took it to my hobby club for show and tell, the other members were impressed with the results.
