Mick,

Try mailing the photo to yourself - you will probably be offered an option to reduce its size, then you will be able to post it here!

Go in to your local "Everything a pound type shop" and look for keyrings in the shape of a climbing carrabiner with a small compass and small torch built in. They are normally made from aluminium and the compass can be cut out and used. The clear dome can be cut from any suitable shaped/sized clear packaging. The compasses come in two sizes and I used the bigger one for my 1/6th scale Mersey so the smaller ones should do for 1/12th scale.
