Duly noted. Although I like explosions, I don't like unexpected ones.

I am thinking of using a C5-P manufacturing technique from tbzep industries in one of my projects so I don't burn up the tops of the multiple motor mounts ...

They might work for you or me, but I think Road Runner has a controlling stake in those companies. Their products will always fail when Wile E. Coyote tries to use them on Road Runner, but work correctly for others.

Has anybody have a paper model of the UFO from the T.V. show "UFO" from the 1970's era?

I think that would make a kool rocket!

Love the sound effects.

The Centuri Alien Scoutship Flying Saucer has always been one of my favorite kits. I had a couple when they came out years ago. The design to me was so well thought-out. Centuri gave us the basic flying saucer that most flying saucers have been designed on since.

So I set out to clone the Centuri UFO. I know, others have done this. I decided to take a different approach to my clone.

First, I decided to draw the elements that had originally been embossed.
Second, I down-sized the scale to fit on a 8.50 X 11.00 sheet of card stock for printing.
Third, I wanted to share this design with anyone who would like to build their own.
At the end of this build thread I will send the PDFs to Scott so he can post them for sharing. It's all right with me if anyone wants to recolor or add their own touch to the drawing. All I ask is share it here.

The size of the craft is around 75% the size of the original Centuri UFO. ( 7 inch in diameter)

I used the BT-20 engine tube. If you want to fly on a smaller engine use an adapter.
Some parts are printed on 110 cardstock, and some parts are printed on adhesive-backed shipping label paper as noted in the thread.

Here are a couple shots of my UFO sighting.
That's a beautiful reproduction! Another possible solution to reproducing the embossed features, if you make another one, might be to laminate the "frustum shrouds'" card stock, leaving appropriately-shaped openings in the uppermost layer. That red emblem, incidentally, was seen on the white, egg-shaped (prolate ellipsoid), landed UFO (see: https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf...Hd0KDMsQ4dUDCA0 ) that Police Officer Lonnie Zamora approached fairly closely on the ground on the outskirts of Socorro, New Mexico, on April 24, 1964.
