Bernhard Schrock Ha! The Master of What if I back! What a joy to see more of your fantastic work! I think I see different ping pong balls and an „Überraschungsei interior compartment"? more pictures please!!
Dieter Bihlmaier Well, here my complete pic's. (an ad on to my comment above: The project was abandoned nearly twenty years! It was not a twenty year build of course)

JD Please consider doing another sci-fi build! I would very much enjoy seeing your process. To me, scratch building is the highest skill one can achieve in modeling, and indeed every vehicle and structure conceivable was once imagined and then built from scratch.
If I may recommend - I observed you fancy re-purposing everyday objects for scratch parts - have a look at used PC/Mobile-phone parts - metal, cable, lenses and all kind of good stuff and creative input to be found there... I use old PC cables all the time and mobile-phone lenses/parts for HUD, Optical missile guidance systems and IRST sensors and they do look rather fine in such roles

Spanjaard i still disassemble any broken device before discarding them, with that specific purpose I am glad I am not the only one
gorbygould Spanjaard: The first three books seem very dated now, still, a good story is always a good story. The fourth book (Foundation's Edge) I have enjoyed rereading the most.

Dieter Bihlmaier Thanks mates. I have also read the first three books of the foundation story. Philip K.Dick is als one of my favourite authors. Especially the short stories.

gorbygould I don't read much Scifi these days, but when I did, Philip K.Dick was my favourite.

JD I have to bring this amazing work of art to the front of the line! I have great respect for scratch building and your work deserves recognition.. you have a new fan here!

Rui S I've always dream to do This kind of scratch build scifi spaceship with raw matirials and stuff, but it never came to reality. Just a dream.
So I realy admire your skill, talent and imagination. Very well done alround.

Mike Szwarc Fascinating build!! You have a wonderful imagination.

Dieter Bihlmaier I agree gorbygould, Philip K. Dick was a fantastic writer. JD,Rui S and Mike, thanks for your friendly comments.
Dieter Bihlmaier Thanks mates for your kind responses.
Bernhard, du hast die Ausstellung knapp verpasst. Ich hatte das Teil 2000 in Telford dabei. Wir haben uns ein paar Jahre später wieder in Telford getroffen, als du deine zivile (preigekrönte) 48er Avenger dabei hattest.

Bernhard Schrock ....2003, ja, das war eine unvergessliche Erfahrung. Mit Bus, SBahn und Bahn nach Wesseling und mit drei Jungs im Lieferwagen über Calais nach Dover.... Mein erster und wohl Einziger Besuch in Telford mit Plastik denn danach bin ich auf den gaaaanz großen Maßstab 1:1 umgestiegen. Inzwischen ist mein bestes Werk (Alex) fast 7 und geht in drei Wochen zur Schule-
Na, vielleicht sehe ich mal eines der anderen Modelle in Heiden oder so.
