Lost In Space!

Can there be anything worse than leaving the sat nav at home when you're not totally sure where you are going and you have a rather unnerving terrible sense of direction? Not a good combination. And poor Saucer Head is Lost In Space!

There are way too many planets that just look the same. And all that space junk just sitting there makes navigation in a one-man (or one-alien) space machine a little tricky at the best of times.

And please don't ask Saucer Head to reverse park. The space machine makes a terrible grinding and scraping sound. Something to do with the mechanics not being in the right place. And why try and reverse when you can just drive straight in?

Saucer Head is available to buy from the wonderful world of Dr Digi.  I've coloured him with Promarkers and added an acetate 365degree all-the-way-around windscreen, which has been fixed by adding glossy accents to his eyes and then adding the acetate over the top.  Cruel I know, but it works!

The backing papers I have a feeling are also Lost In Space as they came from the Funky Fairy many moons ago and I can't even find a link to them.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Make My Monday:  Anything That Flies
Craft A Scene:  Ships In The Night (Space Ship and its always night in Space!)
