Any tips for a lightbulb access panel? <br>
Here's mine... I made the alien from homemade Sugru.
<p>This is really great! I'm going to make this. Thanks!</p>
<p>Where can you get the little alien figure? I tried looking online but all I can find are those stupid Toy Story 3 eyed aliens. I want to make this for my mom because she loves the original Little Green Men style Aliens </p>
<p>This isn't the best picture, but mine turned out pretty well. </p>
<p>nice effort 100! Where did you get that alien head ?! It's gloweeee!</p><p>I'm motivated now to attempt making my mothership. </p><p>Get the cows in the barn, Martha! </p>

Awesome!!
Great idea! just made my son one!
Amazing! I love your creativity...it is inspiring to see what you can make with everyday items!
I like this. I think I will use this idea to make a tank for my beta. I have and would suggest a color changing led for the light You can get them in the aquarium aisle
saw a site selling something very akin to this last year but were charging &pound;70!!! this a much cheaper and more inventive alternative, nice work!
very very cool. love it!
THEY'RE HERE!!!!
A possible addition is some polycarbonate sandwiched between the 2 halves of the saucer. It would glow from the light source giving a little detail around the edge.
Great idea!
Awwww yeah!
very good <br>
Neat project.
Super adorbs. Nice work!
Amazing and so simple! I love that virtually all your elements can be found at the dollar store! Totally clever! :)
Great idea and execution! <br> <br>Now I just need to find a place to put one...
Also might try filling the glass with some kind of resin so I can have my lego guy floating part way up to the UFO!
very very cool! <br>I like it!
This idea is very cool!
Haha cool lamp.
This is hilarious, and awesome. Great work! Thank you so much for sharing your project.
