once upon a blue moon

I've decided to change to name of my short from "Washed up" to "Once upon a blue moon" (that title might well change again), since the action is now set in outer space.  I've been busy making a spaceship from a garden water spray bottle with some deodorant sticks and some cheap plastic binoculars for boostersIt's still based entirely on one set, which I now have.  I got lucky and found an old unused curved one in storage, which I painted blue. The old robots just there whilst I finish the new one (which has the old ones legs!) See More
