The Electric Banana
The Electric Banana: a Spinal Tap related spaceship. I promised to Uspez Morbo I would do this, so here you are: enjoy!
About this creation
Hello. My name is Marty Dibergi. I'm a filmmaker. I make a lot of commercials. That little dog that chases the covered wagon underneath the sink? That was mine. In 1966, I went down to Greenwich village, New York City, to a rock club called The Electric Banana...










Deploying landing gear:





Cockpit peels open.



"Gimme some mon(k)ey.."
And controls "...on all fours..."







Notice how it's got no thrusters or anything? That's because, people, it's ELECTRIC!
It's such a fine line between smart and stupid.
Still, this one goes to eleven.






This comes from my wifes personal collection; she's into plastics as well.

NOOOO, CHRIS! IT'S TUPPERWARE!!!

You know, I really gotta stop taking that thing to the airport with me... or at least stop keeping it in my pants. And Heather... I have PLENTY of batteries... don't bother.

Quoting Chris Phipson That would be in June in Chicago. Only we won't have any electric bananas... unless Heather brings her own that is.
yeah, okay, that's only 6566km from here(just checked it out). And Heather, don't forget the batteries. And Chris, you can always bring your foiled cucumber...

Quoting Chris Phipson And yeah... tupperware... Like Kelso said, Suuurrreee. If that's what you have to tell yourself to sleep through the night when the wife goes to those tupperwear parties... more power to ya my friend. I prefer to just live in blissfull ignorance myself. Blissfull... ignorance... ~ Chris.
I knew it! I knew I've seen that satisfied grin somewhere before as she comes in from partying Tupperware. But no, serious, really: aren't women the luckiest with the Tupps?? I mean; when are we ever gonna have a Lego-party???

So basically, what you're saying is that we need to have one of the band members on all fours sniffing the glove? (for those that don't get that... watch the movie). And yeah... tupperware...

"It's such a fine line between smart and stupid. Still, this one goes to eleven." That made me laugh! Nice to see this with the text written in. :D I guess I was too speedy on my comment!

Quoting Uspez Morbo Whoa, you did it! I gotta say I didn't recognize the reference right away but after a tiny bit of research I realized it the name of the club that Marty DeBergi first saw Spinal Tap playing. Nice! Very funny once I figured that out! I'm really shocked you built this, a curved banana ship couldn't have been the easiest thing to build but it looks great! I gotta build mine now... too bad I don't own very many pink bricks..
Phew, you're quick! I haven't uploaded all the text yet!

Hilarious idea! The opening cockpit is notable, but the monkey at the controls is even better.
