Clarksville Alien

 In 1948 an alien craft was shoot down by the US Air force and crash landed near Clarksville, Kentucky. The debris of the small craft was collected and stored at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base under a top secret branch of Project Sign.
The record states 86 boxes left Clarksville,  box number 24, supposedly containing the body of an extraterrestrial, went missing along the way.

This was an enjoyable and different project, both in time period and subject. Most of the suit and the ship parts are made of cardboard with a layer of PVA glue and filler then lots of metallic and non-metallic paint layers to give it an alien metal look. The suit also contains parts from a barbie doll, plastic wine glass and even some bread bag twisters and rice noodles got used at the waist area.
Hope you like it!
