BOTTOM-CENTER!

I found that the Top to the Costco Salt Shaker was the perfect diameter for the Bottom-Center Section of the Saucer. I held the pencil and turned the Top to make a cut line...

I cut the excess off with a Cut-Off Wheel.

I sprayed a little Primer on the Top and after it dried I found center on the Top. Then I scribed a Circle for the "Elevator". The Laser Cannon will be located in the Center...

PRIMETIME!!!

 

I applied a few coats of Dupli-Color Filler/Primer to the Saucer. Top View!

The Top-Center Section will not be glued in place, so I can access lights & batteries.

 

DSCN5746E_zpsc7dc1cbf.jpg

 

The Underside!

 

DSCN5754F_zps8a878ddc.jpg

 

The Bottom-Center Section will attached to the Saucer with magnets, no glue.

PAINTING THE HOUSE!

This is a Great kit. The Plastic is molded into 4 different colors plus clear. I painted the house with my own flat colors, then added washes and sprayed with Dullcoat.

 

DSCN5886F_zpsfe50016a.jpg

 

The Roof was sprayed with Grey Primer, then I brushed on The Detailer-Black. Some Dullcoat was then sprayed on the Roof.

 

DSCN5682F_zps903c8460.jpg

 

I replaced most of the plastic kit windows with thin clear plastic sheet. I did use the kits Bay Windows.
Four different styles of Curtains came with the House. I cut open some of the Curtains so we can see inside. Then I taped them inside of the Windows.

Here is what it looks like after the Windows and Curtains have been added.

The saucer looks a little generic ... it's a GM-Mars Saucer?  ... what's the mileage?, HP?, how many passengers? :D

 

Your builds are such fun, Ira ... and looking great!

THE BIG BASE!

This Base and another Flat Base came with Plastic Display Cases for 25th scale cars.
This is the extra Base, I'm using it for the House. I fit the House Kit's Base on this one and Cut-Out an access hole.

 

DSCN5648F_zps5c4c0545.jpg

 

Here is the Grey House Base glued in place on the Big Base.

 

DSCN5653F_zps9a8a7e84.jpg

 

 

I cut-out Sheet Plastic to bring the Black Base height up to the House Base, so they are level & flat. Then I sprayed some Grey Filler-Primer over the Base. I needed this larger Base because I will be fitting the switch and batteries inside.

Oh boy !!   I remember that movie. Pretty bad. Typical 50"s sci-fi.  Looking forward to see what your mind comes up with.

 

Yeah if you Google "Earth Verses the Flying Saucers" you will see several of Ray Harryhausen's Movie Models... B)

THE PEOPLE ARE COMING!

I found some old HO Scale Pre-Painted Metal figures in my stash. These are Weston Figures, I found a few of these Great Figures on Ebay too. They come on cardboard with a Rectangular Clear Cover, Save the Covers!

 

DSCN6241S_zps53720143.jpg

 

The Clear Rectangular Cover is the Perfect size for HO Scale Doors or Windows!

 

DSCN6244S_zps54b3668e.jpg

 

Here is the guy glued into the Cover, with the Cover taped in place.

He is a little hard to photograph, but here he is in the House!

ON BASE!

Before gluing the House together I taped some Tan colored paper behind the open curtains. This gives the illusion of an interior wall seen through the window.

 

DSCN6275S_zps20353064.jpg

 

Here are the 4 walls glued in place on the New Base!

 

DSCN6288S_zps2a5ee0a3.jpg

 

This House will be going through a lot of Stress, so I am adding interior bracing to keep it together. The Big Round Tube added quite a bit of strength to the structure.
