With the Oval Outlaw and the Wave Skimmer I had already come closing to a circular shaped model. The thing of course is that the available parts don't allow for a perfect circle. So what comes closest is the broken circle, which was the setup for this model. Basically it required keeping the curved slopes a 1x1 brick apart and let the human eye complete the circle. I aimed for a symmetrical shape in all four directions. I knew this was not possible but I took it as close as was possible. I could have left it at that, but I decided to give the basic model a bit more flair and added a extravagant engine section where the perfect symmetry was broken anyway. As before, the transparent dome is absent in the instructions, but one can always decide to leave it out if you like that better. I was not sure what to name it, so I decided for a kind of extravagant name as well, a fitting companion to the Oval Outlaw and the Wave Skimmer.
