Here you can see what I plan to do with my BSR and Saucer. 1. Take them apart (it was easy to do) 2. glue where the pilot should be a magnet and same to the pilot 3. glue dome to the saucer or BSR 4. glue strong magnets in the BSR and Saucer to put it later together. 5. the Backpack is not glued to the robot yet, it will be magnetized, too! I do not think I can do it before next year, because I need to order some magnets. For the BSR I plan to do more, I will put soon pictures and explanations online.
Just started with my clear stands. I bought 1cm clear tubes with 6mm holes. Also bought 6mm clear rods, but they were 6,2mm, so I had a lot of work to get them to fit in the holes. The next rods will be more clear as this one. In the moment I can put one saucer on 5 Deadzone height level. I still need to make a base (or use the original one) and get magnets so the saucer on the top can be removed easily. - Only difference to this picture I made it that I glued a rod filling most of the tube, showing out of the top. In the bottom I can connect other parts. - The first tube under the saucer is smaller than the others, together with the saucer height (incl. Dome), it reach 3 inch. - all the other tubes are 3 inch tall.
In a few weeks many Mars Attacks backers will get the crashed Saucer. Big problem! The dome is not not clear plastic, so the inside is not visible. I'm and many others are not really good at painting freehand. So how to paint it? I do not want to paint it in any color, it should be clear. Interesting ideas from the Kickstarter comments: 1. Wulf: "Do the crashed saucer dome in white with crackle glaze, it'll look like shattered perspex." 2. Undave: "You could always paint the crashed saucer dome to look like exploded Martian and then give it a heavy gloss varnish." 3. Another idea would be to combine method one and two. 4. My first idea was to get somehow Mantic to sell only a clear saucer dome, remove the unclear dome from the crashed saucer, put a black cotton wool in the clear dome to simulate smoke in it and glue it on the saucer and let some smoke coming out of the saucer (Ok, the clear dome must have the same size for this method!) 5. Another idea would be to remove the dome and try to put only smoke cloud on the saucer. I hope that someone could help with - ideas how to do it, - provide pictures of painted versions here of the painted dome - or even better give also a tutorial how to to it. Truck-Windows As Darsc Zacal mentioned, with the trucks we have the same problems with the windows! About the trucks I got a cool advise from SKRHH in the comments from BrÃ¼ckenkopf-Online. Don't paint the windows, put selfmade armor plates on them. With small observation slits. For the weldseam, you could use a small hot glue gun. It is not so hard to do it.
