We venture into space

In the multimedia extravaganza that is this blog, today we have a video of my latest (and first) space creation. A small winged ship, that is bus-like in shape, perhaps in a nod to the flying RV that starred in "Spaceballs." This fine bit of camera work was thanks to a cork coaster and the Flock of Seagulls singing "Space Age Love Song."

Ultimately, while I'm happy with the overall lines of the ship and the wings, I struggled to define the front and ended up with the boxy final appearance. It might as well be a bus or truck because without the side jets there is nothing to indicate that this vehicle is meant for space travel. But true builders don't complain about a lack of parts, they just discover how to be more creative with what they have in their collection.
