Last night I watched the original 1953, there are some interesting builds available. Of course the war machines; but the group build includes the military hardware which means you could doa Northrup flying wing. And I just noticed in the movie; Woody Woodpecker can be seen in a tree when the first Martian meteor lands. It was a shoutout to Walter Lantz who was good friends with director George Pal.

Since they were using stock military footage there is a cubic butt ton of military gear that could be set up. I think the initial CP just before the first fight would be a great diorama.

Oh, this is sooo tempting. I'll have to see where I'm at with the two I committed to. Still need to add a tripod and the alien from the 1950s version to my built collection.
