He had cut, stapled and hole punched a design in the wings. The small ship was attached to the larger ship by a long piece of green ribbon - hence forming the "drop ship". Just cracked me up. So much detail out of old cardboard.


That's so great! This is exactly the sort of stuff our ds does - he draws out designs for all kinds of conveyances, costumes, etc., but also loves to build things out of whatever is piled up around the house + tape.
