That is great!
Now where in the heck do you store it?

Susan...thumbs up to your husband! That looks like all custom aluminum framing. Very nice! Do you have any aliens to hang out with the ship? How do you plan to display it?

storage is a problem, lol. it used to fit in our haybarn... until we put it all together! now i am going to have to just tarp it behind the barn i think.

it is made from 2 of the 11 foot old-style (huge) satellite dishes. i got them for FREE!!! a couple of silver tarps and a can of silver spray paint later and there you have it, a UFO!

we are currently building it a landing gear, so it can sit out in front of our house to draw maximum attention. i also need to get going on making a couple of pilots for it!

My husband made me a UFO several years ago. You should get some of the strands of chasing Christmas lights. Makes it very realistic.:)

years later... i have pics. my apologies!

this landing gear didn't work out, but the lights did!


on it's proper landing gear


there's good news and bad news.
the good news was this eventually even FLEW! >:)
the bad news? it was during a tornado, and it was destroyed, wrapped up in a tree top. RIP my U.F.O. i miss you still...

set up in my friends trail


sorry about the bump, i was looking back at my old posts and realized i'd never shared 'finished' pics of it.

Oh man, what a shame it was destroyed in a tornado - but I think you have the sentiment right, in that it FLEW.... I'm sure it was how that UFO would have wanted to go. LOL.

Glad you have a lot of pictures to go back and google at! :)
