    Kinda off yet still on topic, there was a guest on the Art Bell Coast to Coast AM radio talk show who was on to discuss aliens and saucers.

    Arts guest had a website featuring various saucers. One of the pictures on his site was a grainy picture of the Invaders saucer with people standing around it and claimed it to be a genuine picture of a * experimental aircraft. The people standing around the alleged * saucer were standing by incredibly coincidance, in the same postures as the figures that came with the kit. When I emailed the guy sending pictures of the Invaders kit I got a reply saying that the Invaders TV show probably found the same alleged * saucer picture during their research and used for inspiration on their design.

    :confused

    If I find that site I'll post a link. Its crazy.

    From what I have heard is this.
    The saucer was build on spec by Projects Unlimited for the Howard Anderson company.
    Projects Unlimited are the same people that made the 11' Enterprise.
    I believe Richard Datin had commented about the Invaders Saucer when asked about Enterprise miniature project.

    Ive heard that the Invaders Saucer was 4' across.Some of my friends have said that it still hangs in someones rafters in a shop somewhere here in Hollywood.

    I have my self built a saucer that is 21" across that I may make in a kit some day.I made it and never finished it but if I can figure how to post pictures I will put them up.
    I just dont think anyone would want one .
    Most people dont even remember the Invaders TV show.
    I really liked the show.Star Trek is my first loveand The Invaders is number2.

    I have those Starlog special editions and can scan the pics in. There's only one pic per book of the invaders craft and it looks like it came from a picture from someone's TV. Very grainy. One's in flight and the other looks like the infamous landing shot mentioned in the Art Bell posting.

    Any chance we can see what you turned up in the way of photos of the studio model. I've been looking for years and only found 1 photo of it (it's posted on another modeling board). Love to see what you found. Thanks.
