Ming's Orb

This weekend, I painted a 28mm scale robot--specifically, the nameless orb servant of Ming featured in Flash Gordon (1980). The orb floated in the movie, and the miniature fakes the effect with some smoke and flames, as though the robot is jet-propelled. I think the cloud at the bottom of the mini looks all right, but the effect isn't as successful on the supporting stem. A clear bit of plastic might have worked better.
