Click the link for the first blog installment of the WIP power plant/shield generator/whatever I want it to be next week that I am working on.

I've got a couple of those in my future projects box as well, although I was thinking "spacecraft parts" for mine.

If you like Milliput, I suggest you also try out Magicsculpt at some point. It's got many of the same properties, but I find it's easier to work with, has a longer shelf life, and costs less, esepcially in large quantities.

Sadly, it generally requires mail order to get ahold of. Unlike Milliput, it's not found in many stores.

What did you use for the base? (already tearing apart the kids tape containers)

I'm totally stealing this idea.

The base is thin "craft" wood from Michael's. It's 6 inches square IIRC.

Chief, this is the first time I've worked with Milliput. The Hobby Lobby 40% off online coupon dropped the price by about $5.50 USD I'll give Magicsculp a try sometime.

Soldat, steal away!

Nah, found the containers after the kids were done with the gum.
