Dave's Saucer City

Here's my diorama of an anti-gravity electro-magnetic hovercraft dealership.















The pictures I took while I was building it are here: https://public.fotki.com/daveintheha...s-saucer-city/

There's a slideshow on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/daveinthehat/

Flying saucers and steam locomotives... talk of a time warp!

One of the advantages of flying saucers, good in any time frame!

Extremely clever, Dave, and very nicely built...super details. Where'd you get the saucers?

I got the flying saucers from the toy machine outside the grocery store. They're made out of the same plastic as a Crazy Glue bottle. Very difficult to paint.

Scales Modeled: Heavily into semiscale 0-27 with a few scale 0 and some older HO, S, N, and one G and Z scale set.
Wow-ee! Talk about the epitome of out of the box creative thinking and model making. This is most definitely a great example of that in it's purest form. A fabulous idea and truly eye catching implrmentation. I love it!!!

A shame they don't have a scale kit of a Futuro house... would have made a great office for the business!
