ok, this is something I have been working in between my car projects, the alpha centauri UFO's. The scene depicts two aliens surveying earth, when one gets too close to a car and scratches the back of it. To show that not all alien life is intelligent the alien gets his ridiculously big implement to scratch a note into the cars paint. i came up with some hyroglyphs for the alien language, and scratched it into the boot lid, basically saying, "sorry I scratched your ship"

the alien's tool/weapon is made up from scrap parts from various sources. The wall and pavement are made from Chemiwood, and the base has two pieces of 1/35 scale cobble stone roadway, on top of Modroc and perspex. The alien ships, are lit with strands of electroluminescent wire and powered with a 6v inverter.

You know, allegedly, a UFO did buzz (and damage) a police car in North Dakota in 1979...

None whatsoever.

I give the copper props for even attempting a story like that.

I usually was "cut off" by a black sedan that failed to yield............................................
