the one eyed astropus






made from acrylic plastic fiberglass brass steel p38 filler and epoxy putty.
working lights front and rear with a strobe exhaust nozzle and cockpit illumination.
2 aa batteries in the base power up the lights.
the eyelashes are plucked from a clothes brush.
the wing mirrors are made from pieces of mini disc and sparkle nicely.

Inspiring! I'm so stealing your eyelash brush bristle idea and generally going to soak up your resourcefulness! Rock on!
