Subject:An interesting consequence of the availability of cheap LED light bulbs...
Time:11:30 am
...is that anyone wanting to game the Lensman stories or any other SF with spherical-ish or ovoid hulls (I'm looking at you, Farmer in the Sky and Time for the Stars) now has a great source of cheap plastic starship hulls - unlike glass ones they're safe to handle, should take glue and paint easily, and already have quite a lot of interesting ridges etc. You just need to modify the bases to look a bit more like engines and less like a screw or bayonet, add a few antennae and twiddly bits, and paint.



Light bulb



Starship

Could they be related?

Yep. There's also a very nice bulb ship on one of the UK editions of Time for the Stars but I couldn't find a picture;
