I doff my cap to you sir. This is truly a thing of beauty.
An airstream would not stop a ballistic rocket. I was thinking more like an amored personel carrier! Or a Bunker with at least a railroad tie roof!
They are secured firmly with super clear tape to the aluminum launch lug. The pod exterior will have layers of protective clear tape when it flys.Are Barbie and Ken firmly attached to the frame internally? If not, G forces are likely going to somewhat, um, reposition them. You could ties them to the body of the rocket, brings a whole new meaning to the term “G-String.”
The pillow bunting is supposed to be like the web the Xenomorphs trapped you in after being face higged and implanted with a Xenomorph in your tummy. Initially Fashionista Ken was to be on top, better for CG! But Malibu Barbie fit better in the narrow space, so Fashionista Ken and his big booty had to be placed lower but as high as possible for CG. His nose was still a bit far out so he ended up about mid thigh on Barbie with his head turned to the side to fit. Both the action figures have their legs stratteling the lauch lug and being taped. The most important aspect was, of course, to keep Fashionista Ken's hair in pristine condition and easily viewed by all his fans! An extra face hugger has been placed between his legs. Will post more pictures soon.
Fer shure! Totally!It is Malibu Barbie's printed black shirt that says ROCK! It is covered by bunting. No extra Aliens allowed in Pod.
I think Barbie and Ken think the Xenomorphs are just some carnies traveling through Malibu Beach and they have a fun ride to meet the Queen of England, thier home country. England, you know, like somewhere between New York and Canada. Hopefully the beaches will have killer parties!
Soooo, that would be the cerebellum, aka the hind-brain?The Flying Buttress Fins have been painted in a nicely contrasting shade of green. Fashionista Ken might be a bit color blind but he is still a rad fashion designer. Even though they may look a bit like tongue depressors, Fashionista Ken has assured me he did not skimp on the quality of materials used.

Thanks for posting the video. One of the motors must have burned out a tad earlier sending the coast horizontal and then down due to action figure weight and drag. Would have been ok if it kept going up.... Computer simulation doesn't take into account such factors. Maybe in the future an Artificial Intelligence program will just flash ABOMINATION on screen and shut down!
