How to reproduce satellite dishes

We have to admit that some skill and a steady hand are necessary to create a satellite dish from a tablet blister package. But this method gives you a maximum degree of flexibility regarding size, shape and colour of your antenna. Use a nail scissors for cutting. We fixed it to a model car's axle and took polystyrene profiles to replicate the Low Noise Block Converter (LNB). Cyanoacrylate glue ('superglue') will help you to mount different materials like steel and plastics. Finally, paint the satellite dish light grey or choose any other realistic colour.
