Upcycled Star Trek Ship Model

Still a work-in-progress, this upcycled Star Trek ship model is made by Brazilian artist-maker J. Azevedo. He specializes in building robots and model dioramas using upcycled hardware and electronic components, as well as leading workshops for children on the importance of “environmental education,” starting “from top to the bottom, inside out, reducing household refuse.” Using this technique, not only can you build the starship you always wanted to see in action, but it’s just as fun to attempt to identify individual components and their previous uses, such as Molex connectors, spray bottle caps, and individual Lego parts, among other bits.
