How to make a model starship Enterprise from an old floppy disk. Tired of the war? Have a 3.5 inch floppy disk you don't need? Do something useful!

Mine didn't really turn out, but it was awfully satisfying to rip the floppy to pieces.

Next up, a Saturn V out of an old 5 1/4" disc...

8 minutes from floppy to composition. HERE.

And I'm supposedly busy today.

As a mac user, this is the first time in about 5 years I've missed not having a floppy.

OK, I made one. It's nifty! Next war distraction, please. (Work doesn't count.)

Ok, now make a RAID with floppy disks.

I had to wait until I got home for this because my local library blocked that site as porn.

I plan to make a few and give them to Star Trek nerds/friends as Christmas gifts. I'll tell them they are special edition Hallmark Trek Ornaments.

[this is good]

Now I know what I can do with that stack of floppys collecting dust in my cabinets. Thanks soulhuntre!

gawd, but I love the internet, without which joys such as this would not be possible to share.

I forwarded this to a couple of friends who are, uh, a bit more geared into to Star Trek than yours truly. Within ten minutes one replied: "Guys, With some slight modifications, you can also make a romulan warbird." Voila
