Mat Irvine: This is a very simple kit, with a saucer that consists of upper and lower halves, plus a separate ray projector and central landing pylon. A small stand is also supplied to display the craft in flight mode, and a card diorama backer of the White House is included. This is to show off the finished model in a touchdown scenario.
Parts layout (below). Note the White House card backer pic.
Closeup of small parts (below) shows the projection ray and LED.

There’s more on the movie in the excellent book The Saucer Fleet by Jack Hagerty and Jon C. Rodgers (below). The book is presently out of print (I think I got the last copy) but is still available from Amazon (see bottom). It’s well worth the money.
