I love that ship, and really enjoyed the movie as well. Have it on DVD in fact. I'll be following this with great interest.

A possible source for plastic domes is the round Christmas ball shaped bottles Coke puts out every year around Christmas time.

Yes, something is there common, but the main inspiration for the author is described here:

I understand that robert but for those who have a better chance of modding a present model than building from scratch with a 3d modeling program, thats why i pointed it out. Theres another option Here the Mat gyro......空想科学的紙工作

Yes, you are right, there is always a lot of options what to build

But besides that, some of us are in love just in some particular thing and don't want any substitute

I have created the bubble ship, in conjunction with a plastic sphere. Just finished it the other day. This is my Beta version.

Great looking model Piggler.

As all are aware, the problem with this model is the clear bubble.
A design has to be scaled to fit a particular found clear sphere,
and that makes it difficult for anyone else to build it...unless they
too can acquire the same clear sphere.

The bubble Coke bottle is a great idea.
Coke is sold around the world...maybe those bottles are too?

Michaels is only a North American store, so the rest of you are outta luck
if the sphere is a Michael's item.

If you plan on releasing this kit, make up a sphere pattern in paper.
The builder can choose to build it, or use the pattern to cut some acetate.
Just a suggestion...if you plan to share the kit.

Any glass blowers around?

Hi Airdave,

Thanks for the input, I agree that a paper version of the canopy is required for those who are unable to find a clear sphere. I'm wondering on how to texture the sphere in a tasteful way, as to not make the ship look awkward? (ideas?) I think the clear bubble is what really makes this ship pop.

When designing this model, I did include a diameter gauge so anybody can scale the parts to what ever size sphere they find. All parts must be scaled together. I actually printed this ship before I received my sphere........ so there was a discrepancy.... diameter was a bit bigger than advertized....

As for finding a clear sphere, I was able to find them on EBAY, multiple sizes of clear Christmas ornaments, ranging in size from 2.5'' all the way up to 6''. These spheres split in half for ease of installation of the interior. The price is very reasonable as well. 1$us up to 5$us

I have attached some screen shots. There are still some things I need to address before this kit can be released.
