Blake's 7 Ore Ship - balls.
Moving to the other end, we have these two shapes in Pic 1. Looks to me like two ping pong balls each with half an R2D2 from the old X Wing kit and an unidentified tube facing forward.
But they ain't ping pong balls as they're too big.
Had a rummage and came up with a couple of Christmas baubles which are a tad smaller but are close enough. Pic 2 shows them alongside a couple of pieces i'm going to attach them to. Looking back at Pic 1, you can see the original has mounting plates for the spheres and a mass of machinery around them. So will be emulating that.
Pic 3 is one of the balls attached
And Pic 4 is them in place.
