CONCRETE WORK!

I am going to add a Patio in the back yard, define the Driveway Lines and add some Sidewalk Detail.
I started by measuring and drawing the lines for the Patio.

Next I started Scribing the lines. The first line defined the little Grass area between the Driveway and the Stairs.

Here is the same area after all the Lines have been Scribed.

Here are the new Patio Lines!

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!

 

Thanks Mike!

The Saucer is a replica of the Saucers from the movie "Earth Verses The Flying Saucers". The Saucers seem to change size, or there are different sizes of Saucers in the movie. This one is HO Scale, it would probably hold a lot of Martians... B)

A LITTLE DIRT & GRASS!

I found a bag of HO Scale Grass at our New Hobby Shop, Fundemonium Hobbies! The Grass is very realistic, it can be applied to the model with paint or glue. It's kind of like, working with flocking.

Here you can see it pretty good. Instead of just one color it comes with several all in the mix!

I also got a bag of Dirt at our New Hobby Shop! I drilled holes for Trees to be added later. Then I painted a Brown Circle around each hole and sprinkled Dirt over the paint.

Great work Ira! One of my favorite movies.

But I have bad news. Here's come the truck to shoot down the saucers!

And it's 1/25th scale!!!!

SPACE PEARLS!

I have been looking for a while, for some half round shapes for the Saucer. I found these at a Michaels Craft Store on Clearance!

 

DSCN6317S_zpse0ba3902.jpg

 

After figuring thier positioning I glued the Space Pearls in place with Formula 560 White Glue. I used a toothpick and filled in any gaps with Formula 560.

LASER LIGHT!

The Laser Beam will be a Big part of the Diorama. I am using parts from a Dollar Store Flashlight for the Laser Light. I will be using the Lights and the Battery Holder from the Flashlight.

 

 

DSCN5850F_zps57020843.jpg

 

 

I found an old Switch from a RC Radio. Later, I cut off the Plug and RC Battery Holder.  Perfect for the Laser Beam!

 

 

DSCN5852F_zps2c2042c4.jpg

 

After doing a lot of testing, I figured out how to solder the switch between the Lights and Battery.

It Works!

Ira, I am one of your biggest fans and love everything you create but I must say to me this is one of the most interesting and can't wait to see it finished. Carry on.
