That is really a great job. I had some thoughts of doing the same thing with some flexible plastic. I hadn't gotten the ad glass figured out yet. I had even considered a white Pyrex Glass Dish upside down!! Ed.
Well guys, I have GREAT NEWS! I am dropping out of the Shoebox Globe Hunt! My friend Pumphunter in Wisconsin found me a NOS Flying A Shoebox Globe IN THE ORIGINAL BOX!! It only cost me my first born male child, but afterall........it's a Shoebox!! See you in Des Moines. Ed in Tucson.
Ed, when you get your globe and put it on your pump send me some pictures. I will take a picture of your picture and post it for you. Here is one of the ones you sent me. Not as good as the original but it works.
