Haunebu Type II

Over the past week, in between work and catching the flu in the middle of summer, I cobbled together this 28mm model for a Haunebu Type II Kampfflugscheibe, the legendary Nazi flying saucer powered by the at least as legendary Vril power source.

There are several model kits on the market which carry -in my not so humble opinion- a rather insane price tag. SO I decided to build one myself from some cheap plastic dishes, a plastic soup bowl, some balls that come from those childrens' surprise machines, the lid of an M&M box and some steel rings.

The result was quite OK. I might add some details later like gun turrets and such, but he is OK so far.
