    A little model I built over two stormy evenings. Model by Mike Hungerford.
    Base by myself. Really neat model and look impressive when finished. The
    UFO was a little tricky but generally not too bad at all to build. Thanks
    Mike!

    That looks great, Louis! I always found that making the cutout in the Monument fit the profile of the saucer was the hardest part, myself. :)

    Would you be willing to share the base? I'd be happy to add it to the model's page with credits to you.

    Fine model and original topic.

    And a correct size, isn't it?

    Yes, that base would be great! My built version of that scene always falls over... it NEEDS a decent base.

    Hi Mike,
    I tried looking for the base model tonight on all my backup DVDs/CDs but alas I don't seem to have it anywhere. I am not sure if I even kept a copy of it after I built the model as I made it a couple of years ago but recentlt found the built model in a cardboard box with some other models. It's one of my fav.
    But I did get the base from Google Earth and the added the text with a graphics program. I played around with the scale till it fitted the aerial photo of the tower. Once this was done I glued it onto foamboard (5mm). It was very easy to do.
    Cheers
    Louis

    Marco,

    Just put some sand, rice, beans, or whatever inside the Monument; you only need to fill the bottom inch or two/2-5 cm.

    Thanks, Louis; I *thought* the image seemed familiar. :)
