“Install the housing for the glowing main impulse engine, and see the dramatic curve of the saucer structure start to sweep back on itself.“
Materials: The Impulse Engine parts are plastic and the Upper Skeleton 1 is metal.
Fitting the Main Impulse Engine

Secure this Upper Skeleton 1 to the two Skeletal Supports below with four (4) BM screws.
