    Here is my first version of the planetarium... I used some goza, some gems, some misc items (like bauble) and the great rotating globe :)

    That is fabulous! But can you hide the base of the globe? Raise some black goza's up to cover it? Maybe use a jewel to cover any bits that might show?

    I LOVE the thing!

    Great idea! Yea too bad nothing can be rounded to cover up base. Still looks awesome tho!

    I got to thinking about this - lots of stuff with rounded edges. clothing - shirts come to mind. maybe hats? capes? not sure, as i keep losing connection tonight and can't play around looking for stuff. If you can make a grand piano, surely there's something that can be found for this!

    What a great idea.

    I was thinking of extra things that maybe you could add...saturn (planet with rings round it)... comet with tail ... nebula (gas cloud) but dont ask me how to make them lol (Starsmi may know though :D)

    Having said that it looks excellent as it is.

    Hehe you guys are trying too hard! You can actually drop down the base from teh rotating globe by using goza mats raised up (four in a square IIRC), the globe placed, and then you lower one of the mats a couple times to get the drop. I messed around with this idea a year ago on test center but never ended up doing my night sky idea that I was going to put into motion. Was also going to do some of those little wisp statue things for stars.

    I might still do it, but just can't really decide how I'd want to work it into a castle or if I'd want to do it in a custom home.

    Anyways, once you can get the base dropped down and seperated you can cover it pretty easily. I do not believe you can axe it as that may just chop the whole darn thing. The leftover spinny globe makes a great rotating planet, I wish those suckers were dyable, you could get quite the constellation going!

    I absolutely love this! :)

    Silver faction coins would also make good stars, methinks!
