MOEBIUS 2001 1/8 scale Space Pod
oldmodeler posted a topic in Work In Progress - SF & RealSpaceHello Everyone, I have bought the MOEBIUS 1/8 scale space pod. Injection mounded. I also obtained from the US company Tenacontrols (not the pants!), their lighting kit. the total cost of kit and lights around er,eum. about £350 for both after import taxes etc. so I have to do a good job for such a wad. I have checked basic fit of pod parts and they are very good. taking stills from the movie 2001, the interior is ls pretty near the movie prop. I have begun masking off the interior to prevent light bleed from the LED lighting kit. I also have an ARDUINO to be used for lighting the 6 displays and flickering them as per movie. Has anybody stared or completed the kit yet? cooments please....
1-12 Atomic City 2001 EVA Pod
Caerbannog posted a topic in Sci Fi II Group BuildHi, so I keep word and enter the Atomic City EVA Pod from 2001. I must be completely crazy as I have good reason to fear I will not end this build in time which is a bad feeling when starting a GB (I usually get it some weeks before a GB ends...). I hope it is no bad omen that this is my 2002nd post. Would be way cooler if this had been 2001... (sure - noone but me will notice) I plan to install LEDs. I would like to install some blinking lights in the interior but will most likely do not. Speaking of the interior: The kit parts are simplified and my initial plan was to scratchbuild a better one following the instructions on the Atomic City web page - this will certainly slow down the build so I am hesistating - on the other hand I would find it a sacrilege not to add a proper interior to a kit of this scale etc. Enough moaning - here is the box (box is not original one) and content: And here is my amazing progress so far: I washed all parts and sanded the mating surfaces of the bigger parts. A quick fitting check revealed no big issues. I take the opportunity and end with this good news ;-) Rene
