Angel's Pencil
   The Angel's Pencil is a fusion ramscoop interstellar colony ship inspired by the short story The Warriors by Science Fiction author Larry Niven.

   The model was scratch built and kit-bashed from plastic stock material and assorted spare parts from various model kits. Details include parts from a Space Shuttle and a 1950s moon lander, a plastic shot glass and a restaurant half and half container. Model railroad lamps illuminate the engine and windows on the ring and core sections.
