    One of the lesser known flying saucers in Nazi UFO lore is the "Vril" saucer, claimed to be the first of the saucer fleet that has somehow pulled a houdini from the face of the earth.
    I decided to do some extrapolation to see what a "supersized" vril would look like, and I came up with something akin to a miniature saucer battleship.

    I even included a bridge deck for the model. What I did, really was a combination of Galactica's CIC and the Enterprise's bridge. I was planning to put propaganda posters and even a flag in the bridge, but I would have gotten a pantload of flak for that (hehe, flak...)

    In a nutshell, this model is kind of a tongue-in-cheek joke, poking fun at science fiction shows as well as giving a large dollop of gratuitous wartime germanic aesthetics. And a little trivia: The "R-1" seen on the side of the main cabin stands for Raumschiffe 1, much like how U-boats are designated U-XXX, another joke I put there.

    Well, here are pictures of the beta build!
    The bridge turned out to be a cleaner, happier place than I wanted it to be, but oh well...

    As for the landing legs are attached?
    are the black tubes attached to the hull and the gray as a landing plate?
    Or vice versa?
    Thanks and greetings Gerald

    Neato! I suppose a finished model would either have a flat roof or a glass dome to go over the bridge?

    I've included a flat roof to cover the Vril. However, don't be too hyped up over the model, as I sorta-kinda gave up on it after my depression got the better of me mid-project sign1
