Designer and maker of parts for your perfect project.
Invasion Receiver Dish kit designed, developed and 3D printed by Tom's Refurbishments.
This kit is loosely based on the Energy Receiver Dish attachment as used in the 1964 TV story "Invasion Earth", using screenshots of the original props as reference along with a combination of using recognised plans and some of my own design elements.
This kit allows you to build the Energy Receiver Dish attachment with a 3D printed dish and bracket assembly in two halves, 2 custom bolts to primarily secure the dish halves together and a custom "valve" replica made from clear acrylic tubes and 3D printed elements. The bracket on the back of the dish is designed with a slight curvature to make for a better fit onto the back of the shoulder section of your build.
During assembly, this kit will require gluing together with either super glue or epoxy resin, and will also need filling with Isopon P38 car body filler or a similar product along the joining seam of the two dish halves and sanded smooth before painting. Once complete, this piece will be approximately 300mm in diameter.
Toms refurbishment is one if not the best business that can provide you with recreated "prop" parts to a outstanding degree and would definitely recommend him as his speed in posting and the finish quality of the product is handled with such care. Tom himself is also very kind and encouraging and a pleasure to talk to. Thanks to Tom I have been able to start my dream of having my own personal "army" which would not be possible without parts provided by Tom.

I contacted Tom back in 2019 about making some improvements to my project so that I could take him to events and Comic Cons. Tom saw this as a challenge and found solutions which created a beautiful, reliable machine that works wonderfully and allowed me to attend the Queen's Jubilee Parade without any technical issues. I fully recommend Tom's Refurbishments and I intend to commission my other project with Tom in the near future.
