Managed to get a bit more work done on the flying saucer last night...
Part 1 can be found here...
First up I felt that the side wall needed some embellishment - this was provided by some old games workshop bases I had knocking around.
I then turned my attention to the landing gear. I decided quite early on that this would be a separate piece - that way I could display the saucer both in flight and on the ground.
The 'legs' are actually plumbing fittings - a bag of ten cost around £11. These were fixed to a card disk (on which will sit the saucer). To give them more weight I added a 25mm washer 'foot'.
Once these were dry the whole thing got its first primer coat and then the first 'silver coat' - metallic Volvo Silver from Halfords
I still need to complete the paiont job but I thought you might like to see the craft with some of its occupants...this is a big saucer
I should hopefully get this completed later in the week...
Until next time
