It's 2 old fiberglass satellite dishes bolted together. 1 of the top quarter panels is the door opening. When it was first put together I had my husband and one of his borthers climb inside to line the inside w/spray glue and tin foil. I wanted it to be reflective for the revolving colored light ball that was placed inside. When they finally finished w/the glue and foil and climed out they were way woozy and were aggravated to have gotten so drunk without even having had a beer.
The ship is about 5 or 6 yrs. old and starting to look a little rough around the edges. I'm hoping to be able to spruce it up over the summer.
