Here are the things you will need:

  • 9′ & 5′ pvc pipe >> for trunks & ships
  • 2′ x 3′ plywood board >> for base
  • 15″ & 18″ pine round panels >> for saucers
  • 1′ x 3′ plywood board >> for Bird of Prey wings
  • 8 round caps >> for nacelle tips
  • 4 flat caps >> for attaching the pipe trunks to the ships, and trunks to the base
  • 3 T-connectors >> for the Enterprise
  • 1 X-connector >> for the Enterprise
  • 2 elbow connectors >> for the Enterprise
  • 2 straight connectors >> for connecting the pipe trunks to the flat caps
  • 15 2″ length bolts (5/16″ or 1/4″) >> these are for attaching pipes to wooden boards
  • 3 (2 1/2″ length bolts) >> needs to go through both wooden parts of the Bird of Prey
  • 18 nuts (same diameter as bolts)

  • 250 ft sisal rope (1/4″ diameter)
  • pipe adhesive (smallest container available)
  • 10″ L-brace
  • 8″ L-brace
  • 1/4″ screws (2-2 1/2″ long)
  • utility knife (to cut the carpet)

  • staple gun (5/16″ minimum length staples)
  • drill (to drill holes for bolts & put bolts in)
  • ratchet wrench (to secure nuts)
  • scissors (to trim the carpet)
