Ahoy Verne! Greetings from the mighty Robert E. PEARY in overcast Earle, NJ. Here are a few pix of the diorama with the figures that you graciously provided me a few years ago. The diorama is located I the Officer's Mess aboard the PEARY. Above it is a sterling silver tray from the previous FFG- Robert E.

The entire diorama is a free standing display, built on a custom stand by the ship's carpenter. The nameplate is affixed to the top of the display. Just thought that you'd enjoy seeing that we put the figures to good use.

Thanks again—Steven Burdi
