Once again work prevented me from completing this. I may still do it, just a little late.

Re: Team Hosers! (or whatever...)

So I just came across the bag with all of the bits for the second model here. I have done a little bit on the first one and intend to finish it. I'm thinking I'll send the second one back to Johnnycrash? Is that still cool with everyone?

Blaponian Intergalactic Space Saucer

Here is my basic starting point. I've had these for a few years as they caught my fancy for some kind of a saucer so now I can make use of them.

I'll probably grab a few more goodies at the dollar store for it.

I've had these kicking around for years. They are about 14 inches across and made of Styrene so bonus on the material.

I'm in!

Nothing has happened. I had forgotten all about this thing until just a few days ago I came across everything in a box.

I'll send the second one back to you. I will leave the almost done one out and finish it some time this year.
