zombie hotrod flying saucer by amoebabloke zombie hotrod flying saucer by amoebabloke
hi deviants, heres the latest effort from the chaotic junk filled world of amoeba, saucer x4, x4 being the fourth one ive built, bin a long time coming this one, started it ages ago but only just finished it
the saucer body and fins are hand beaten steel,it has a few brass doodads, and cut down tv antennas for landing struts.
the perspex dome comes from a vile fluid / po puri filled condiment jar bought in a local pound shop.
the cockpit and pilot are sculpted from milliput epoxy putty.
its chock full of led's activated by a small toggle switch in the moony base stand, when switched on there is brief period of twirly cycling red light in the cockpit floor and the dome on the underside, the guns also flash via fibre optics.
the red flashing light slows and stops leaving the two tail lights a white cockit light near the floor and a green halo inside the zombie pilot helmet.
the finishing touch genuine 1960 ford consul emblem from a car i restored in the late eighties
you can see a bit more of the lighting effects and general construction over on my blog.

Cute, reminds me of the "Mars Attack" toy saucer movie tie-in released back in the '90s.

Megafied boggleosity!

The zombie's glee reminds me of a Gary Larson cartoon:
two aliens drag-race a UFO down an urban canyon, scattering crowds and traffic; the pilot has a huge grin on its face and crows, "WHEEEEE!"
