Greetings all, I'm working out a project to build a playhouse for my second generation (gen-2) nephews, what I've discussed with their dad is a kid-scaled flying saucer as a playhouse-playfort. So now begins the design process which I'm doing as a series of paper models to best illustrate different types of 'finished' playhouses and the space such will occupy in their backyard. I have two strong candidates so far but open to suggestions from the fine members here at the forum, the two said designs are the Saucer from the TV series The Invaders and a flying saucer seen in the B-movie, Frankenstein Meets The Space Monster. Both are pretty straight forward designs and can see either not being difficult to 'translate' into a playhouse version, a big plus in each being the wide 'skirting' at the base of the saucers providing a good sun-weather shelter for a play area below. All that said, I'm even considering a 'hybrid' version of both saucers as the dome of the FMTSM craft would allow for an excellent interior space, while the Invaders craft's lower 'skirting' and undercarriage would make for sturdy support and good ground anchoring of the structure in general. Again would enjoy hearing any thoughts about said project and thanks for the forum being available to such discussions !
