I started off collecting life-size items to recreate the spores from the Star Trek episode, This Side of Paradise (TOS). I still haven't figured out how I'm going to do the stalks, so in the meantime, I had the idea to make a 1:87 scale version of the scene.
I ordered some Preiser figures and have been sanding and painting them to make them look like the characters. I also bought some HO scale corn stalks, which I then cut and painted and added a little pink ball I made out of sculpey clay and a little additional paper (which is not pictured).
So far, I have Spock completed and one spore. Kirk is in the shaping process still, getting ready for paint.
