Atlantis TR-3E Triangular UFO

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Sept 17 2018



During a thunderstorm at night I played around with my camera to make pictures of the lightning. When I saw the pictures I had the idea to place a model into them. A normal aircraft would not really match, so I found the model of the triangular UFO TR-3E from Atlantis would look cool with the lightning in the background.

The model was built within 3 days. The display I built from scratch (acrylic glass rod with Ø5 mm and a 3 mm thick plastic sheet). I painted all with brush and sealed the model with silk varnish. The edge length of the model is about 13,5 cm.

The surfaces are very lovely detailled and easy to paint, so I can recommend this very special model to beginners which surely will have a quick feeling of success.
