I don't know what's more charming than a spaceship made from an old 1947/8 vacuum cleaner. (I've since lost the source of this photo or the identity of the artist.)



Naturally, I had to draw this creation orthographically.



The process involved lots of research into Electrolux vacuum cleaners, automotive side mirrors, and deer warning whistles.

I recall so many days as a nipper playing with our old Electrolux pretending it was a giant spaceship!

It was just the right size to augment my play with my little plastic spacemen!

Love the Chevy hood ornament on top. That must be the shuttle craft for brief excursions. Wink
