Ira, you are going to have to go some to top this build. I have a feeling however that you will. Very cool build.

This is easily the coolest and funniest Diorama I have seen in a VERY long time. You should build a whole street with all sorts of wacky stuff happening.

Wow. Looks great. I think the lighting delivers the message just fine as is.
Great job, Ira!
Yeah, I am very Happy with the Lights...

Extremely well done. As a big fan of 60s SiFi I have enjoyed watching this build develop. Great creative skills, Ira. It's good to see a builder who isn't afraid to go way out of the box!
What's next? Army or Air Force to the rescue? Maybe Commando Cody or Flash Gordon?

Ira, you are without a doubt one of the most creative and imaginative builders that I have ever seen. Your scratchbuilding for your creations is just amazing. Fantastic work.
Thanks for the kind words Richard!
So glad you like it...

So glad you enjoyed it...

You can'nt get more creative than this !! Just an awesome, awesome job !!! I am sure you explained this but how does the house hold the weight and balance of the saucer ? What scale ? Love it !!
Thanks for the kind words Terry!
The House was mounted on a large base for added stability. Then the House was reinforced with two kinds of glue and plastic tubing was used to reinforce the major supporting joints and walls. The Saucer is held in place with magnets. If you check early SF vs FS construction steps you will find all of the building info...
