My favourite ship from "Phantom Menace" was the "Federation Cruiser", even in its pink
"Ambassador" livery. So, I built a twin-engine version.
As always I used a lot of sheet plastic and tank-treads, but the more interesting bits are
toward the back.
All the hemisphere-shapes are eyeballs. Well, plastic ones, anyway.
Every year between Christmas and New Years Audrey's Crafts store has a half-price sale.
Last year I went crazy and bought huge bags of plastic eyes for dolls.
At the same time I bought bulk bags of little plastic megaphones (two sizes).
The engines are two plastic whistles, with an eyeball on the front and a megaphone section as the engine.
The guns are from the Airfix 1/72 scale P-61 Black Widow, mounted on a computer keyboard key.
