This spaceship was made mostly with reused materials.

The fuselage is made from an old radio tower that the wind knocked down.
The wings are made from metal doors someone threw out.
The skin (covering) and dorsal fin are made from mdf board someone threw out.
The front tire is from a broken baby carriage.
The engine rotors are hubcaps off an old car.
The engines are old drums that weren't watertight enough for dock floaters, 3 old garbage cans and the bottoms from 3 water jugs.
The nosecone is an inverted lampshape and a piece of plastic from a computer monitor stand.
The back of the canopy is the cover of an old humidifier.
The seatbelts are presumably from an old car (garbage picked).
The seat cushion is from a broken back massager.
Back wheels were bought, but from a surplus store (I think they were gears originally).
Also purchased: paint, glue, bolts, front of canopy & 3 more garbage cans.


Pattern or design used: inspired by Battlestar Galactica Vipers
