the two parts of the ship two-part stand

This ship consists of two pieces - the main hull, and a small disk which fits into the bottom of the hull. There is also a two-part stand.

The heart of this vessel is the central ovoid, from which three arms extend to the front and both sides. The ovoid is surrounded by a ring of "vegetation" which thickens in the rear, from which two "legs" trail aft and reconnect to support the dual engines.

The arms are sheathed with overlapping plates, giving them an armoured appearance. The "vegetation" is creased with shallow craters, and studded with grooved buds that somewhat resemble cacti (barnacles? eggs?). The engines are the only part of the ship which look technological rather than biological, with one unit mounted above the other.

The lower disk fits perfectly into the upper hull. Cleaning of the minor rough spots on the disk is not required, as any defects are hidden when it slots into place.

A minor seam runs the circumference of the ship, but is noticeable only on the globes at the arm tips.

63mm long x 36mm wide x 13mm tall.
