I really like this!

I know the UFO's came in a variety of shapes, but my personal preference is for the taller thinner dome...

That's superb, Micro - I love the detail on the paddles.

I agree with portland182, though.

Thanks for the input. Taller / Thinner dome has been added as an option.

The primary image i used to get my dimensions from was this one. It was the best straight on view I could find.

Hi Micro

That's someone's CGI version, from the technical manual, it's not a good primary source of information.
I've made some screen caps from the DVDs for you. Although they are not great, you can see the general shape. If anyone else has better ones please post them!

Printed a new taller dome today. Looks a bit better. Timing was good I had not printed a dome for the larger one of the two yet. Thanks for finding a few pics for me portland182.

If you want to create a very accurate version of it,check out Bernie's
CAD blueprints that he made when he created the limited run 1/48
scale model of the UFO he produced some time ago.I got that particular
kit from him.
