Bell Balls

Work continues on the diving bell project. The yellow diving bell has been painted once but will probably need at least five coats of paint to fully cover the surface.

One of the large bells in primer gray.

The black bathysphere has been finished. The yellow one is in the progress of being painted. One of the others will be painted blue and there will be one left in a navy gray color. These started as wooden balls. It makes sense to make these out of wood because they are strong enough to withstand handling. I chose this over Styrofoam and over ping pong balls because I don't think they would be strong enough for wargaming purposes.
