You've got 40 days to come up with a model based or themed around an "alien device" (an item or a weapon of unknown alien origin).

Intro:

The President's Book of Secrets contains the truth about the JFK assassination, September 11 and other world events, but the most important and curious entry is simply a geographic coordinate "34.924641,-115.350160" followed by "DND" underlined in red ink (Do Not Disturb).

Buried a mile under the Mojave Desert and encased in three feet of concrete is a lead-lined vault containing an archive of highly volatile and dangerous alien devices well beyond our understanding of science and physics, collected and stored under a secret international treaty over the last two centuries. Some of these devices can transmit over thousands of light years within seconds, while others can only be described as doomsday devices.

To qualify, all the models must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE!
