It’s been years since I built a model, even though I have a few unbuilt ones that I’ve been hanging onto for years. I decided to give it another try, and to warm up, I built the recently re-released “Interplanetary UFO”. It’s a model with an interesting history and my Pinterest pages have some links to some pages with good information on it.

Anyway, I now have it build, I haven’t put any decals on it yet, but here is what it looks like under regular light, and under black light
There is a very similiar model, the Leif Ericson, which isn’t made of glow in the dark plastic but does come with a lighting kit. There are also a couple minor differences in the parts. I haven’t built that one yet, but hope to soon.
Here are the boxes for the two kits:
And the backs of the boxes:
