    Nice find R-F! thumbsup

    I have downloaded the Bubble Ship, as I seem to have various size clear balls, left over from the Discovery project....... :):)

    Mmmmm, now....... What size to make the 'bubble' ?????

    I have plastic balls ranging from 4mm up to 14mm diameter.......:eek:

    How big could you go, I wonder, before the weight of the plastic ball overcomes the strength of the paper .........?

    We'll find that out in the future, I am sure.... ;)

    I would highly suggest getting some wire from a welding store, that kind used for Tig welding, the thin stuff will be enough. By incorporating that into any fold or crease, or doubled part, not only will you be able to give it strength, you will be able to "tweak" it. You don't have to stretch this stuff to harden it either, it's pretty stiff as it is. :)
