Am going to give this GB a shot. Here is what I am starting with. An old asthma inhaler. Actually I'll use at least two becauatse there will be some cutting and pasting as I go along.



And once you remove the cover and pull the sides apart, this is what you get.



Then pull out the guts that you don't need.

Cool! A great over-all shape to start with.

Guts into the spares box, I hope ... 'cuz there's some great looking bits in that collection too  :smiley:

Cut and paste time. I cut out a section of one body and replaced it with a section cut from a different body. The idea was to make one fully round body with out the finger holds. The photo shows one piece marked with the part to cut off with the finger holds. The other shows the new piece glued in place. The cut job wasn't so good so it's PSR time.

What kind of plastic is that case made of? ABS?

Not sure. But MEK works as solvent to glue styrene to it.

Just so you know how crazy I've gotten. Here are a few more of the items to be incorporated into this project.



These include some cheap throwaway razors, a Plastruct cylinder, an old clear Legg's panty hose egg, some small easter eggs, a couple empty sewing thread spools, some Kinder Egg inner containers and an old Monogram space shuttle.

WAG - Could be spaceship to Mars with Monogram space shuttle that lands on Mars base runway.  Something along that line.

With a collection of material like that, I've no doubt you'll hit it out of the park, Ed!

This one looks like a lot of fun. Will enjoy seeing where it goes!

Definitely following this one.

A quick update. I have several of the major subassemblies put together. Still need to add a lot of details.

Yes, this did expand significantly after I started. I originally thought a simple flying saucer would be fine. But then inspiration hit me (with a 2x4) and things changed significantly. So this is a real "seat of the pants" build. Usually on my WHIFF and SCI FI projects, I do lots of preliminary sketches and then detailed drawings. This is strictly putting parts together based on a fleeting mental image and see what fits and looks good. It should be fun.

This is the way I work on this type of project, start with a rough idea and let it morph as you construct. As old wombat said creativity on the loose and wild, enjoy the ride.
