My plan is to add to my 3D 'low wall' Space Hulk. I gathered a few drop pod looking things a couple years back, and I've wanted to incorporate two escape pod bays into the layout. It will mostly be Hirst Arts but I'll need to do some custom shapes for things. Nothing to show yet Wink

I've been nursing the idea to build a 3D Space Hulk set for years now - do you have pictures (or a build thread) of the current lay-out online ?

If it is a Dr. Mathias project, it will be stunning and accumulate praiseworthy adjectives like cat hair is magnetically drawn to my allergic face!  Laugh Laugh

Yes indeed, that's the one. Thanks for finding the link! I've had plans to add stuff to the layout for a long time. Thank goodness for all the wacky LAF contests that come along, they are great incentives to make something!

I'm hoping for another 'It's Alive' thread sometime too Wink

Not a whole lot of movement yet, I'm still trying do decide on the shape and size of the escape pod bays. My hulk is 1.5 inch squares and I may make a transition piece so I can connect to 1 inch grid.


Here's the pods. They had some Mega-Blok mechs in them.



I've been using a press mold to replicate some iris doors for the pod exit points.



Another decision is the orientation of the pods. I was originally going with wide end down, but I think the door would make more sense lower and I'll make some 'arms' that hold the pod in place above the iris.



I also cast some maneuvering thrusters in resin. The master was a Lego and a Hirst Arts casting. Should be four per pod.



I'm thinking two 'bays' of three pods each. I'd also like to make some scenery 'troughs' the pods landed in for planetside scenarios.

After a lot of thought I settled on a layout. I'm making three  " + "  sections that each have two iris doors in the floor. The iris will be recessed a bit.  This will let me hook all three pod bays up together, or scatter them around the hulk. The side opposite the entry can be capped with a computer console, or just continue on as need be. I'm planning on making two arm brackets that will hold the pod in place over the iris.



Now the difficult task of sorting parts and deciding which ones to use. Looks like I'll need to cast a few parts as well.

Just a quick question, are you using resin or plaster to cast those Hirst molds? I have some of them, Laugh.
