Here are the Centuri UFO PDFs.

Hope to see some recolors, feel free to do so.

Frank.

Very nice job, I definitely plan to print and build this mini saucer, to go with my original full size version. It was a big hit at our last Cub Scout rocket launch.

The bare elliptical space between the lines on that one side just begs for the Centuri logo.

Another possible way to fill that space: A single Star&Bar and the following text:

U.S. AIR FORCE
SPACE PROBE NO. 1

and then you have just entered, the Twilight ZONE! (apologies to Rod Serling)

P.S. - what about the aerial antenna/landing gear wires?

Thank you kindly Frank for going to all this work and sharing it with us all.
It will give me a good reason to buy another ream of card stock for business cards.
And a package of full sheet sticky paper.
Mine will be black and white unless I use markers.
I don't have a color printer, just an old brother MFC9600 laser all in one.
I'm sure it will fly just the same.

I made a Centuri Saucer clone last year and used the handles from chinese food takout boxes. I thought the wire would be hard enough but it was not, as it bent over on every landing. I recommend you use music wire or the spring wire from suction cup "jumping" toys.

Sorry I didn't make the wire landing legs , but most of the saucers don't have them these days.
For me there a pain in the butt to make, and I'm sure it will land all right with out them.

Fore the ones who want to do a recolor. Here are the black and white sheets.
This should make it easier to color, or add marking. Be sure to share with the rest of us.

Thanks for this. Definitely one of my favorite saucers. I added antenna made from .032" music wire. I felt it was a necessary part of the iconic design.

Blades, you did a great job on your build. With the wire antenna it looks just like the centuri UFO.
I know I made the patterns for the craft, but the builder still has to make them fit. Not so easy, but you lave done a great job. My hat is off to you.

Hope your fly's good. Thanks for giving my litter saucer a try.

Frank.
