Step 4: Skin the saucer

Skin your flying saucer with mylar foil in alternating silver and gold, clear, etc. Use rubber cement to join the mylar to the support tabs. This is the most difficult part of the assembly!  1/2" wide clear tape along the seams will help make the cover smooth.  (If you use a big enough motor you can use card stock for the skin and avoid wrinkle issues you may have with mylar!)
