UFO Tracking Station

By Roger Mitchell

Here are some pix of a top-secret UFO tracking station at Yollamaloo in Western Australia. I'm a fan of Gerry Anderson's 1970 TV series "UFO", and this fits into that world.

The "buildings" are cardboard packing pieces off the corners of a new TV set. The dish is a small dustbin lid with some plastic parts glued on - the struts are the bodies of rubber-band pistols. The ground is covered with upside-down bathroom tiles. The car is a Dinky toy repainted. I used Photoshop to get it all looking a bit hotter, but no major image fiddling.
