Doug, Hulls were made both with and with out the crimped collar. Mine is with a crimped collar. Bill said he will post a photo of his.

There are many differant glass bodies out there... maybe we could do a globe of the month just on globe bodies from 12 metal to 16.5 metal. There should be at least 15+ differant bodies.

Here is a photo of two different Hull bodies.
The one on the left is a red Hull body in a slightly larger size. It is about 5" wide and takes lenses that are 13.75". The white one takes standard 13.5" lenses and is 4.5" wide. I also have a Hull wide body that is about 6.5" wide for 13.5" lenses. None of my Hull's have a metal base.

This is the other side of the red Hull. I am looking for a 13.75" (not 13.5") lens like this one to complete the globe.

Tokhiem:

Thanks, Dave i think the globe looks good, the collar has a bend in it. Ask the other guys if that's an easy fix or not. The globe body is a hull, just like John and Bill stated. So you have two out of three pieces being a hull. I'll stand by my dollar value. But i'm a push over for hulll and gills.

Good luck with it, Doug
