Title: My 15mm Sci-Fi Projects (Store is Open! 02/16/2020)
Post by: War Monkey on November 22, 2019, 03:17:41 AM
Thanks to CookandrewB to whom I am giving full credit to my inspiration of building of this project thus far. Its a small ship to which I have much hope of many adventures aboard. One thing I have learn thus far is not to get carried away with the details, had I not gone overboard with them I may have been done with this one by this weekend, looks like I'll have it done next weekend for sure.

But let's have a peek at what I have done so far shall we

Here is the ship over all.

Here I have a few 15mm figures in the ship for scale.

Here I have a shot looking up thru a section looking up to the bridge.

As you can see has to how I got carried away with the details by adding all those little panels and I'm not even done yet  ;D
I also have addition wing section to add as well.

Thanks for looking and Thank You CookandrewB for your inspiration!

There is more to come and yes there will be more ships in the sky coming!

That looks way awesome.  I can't wait to see it completed.

Post by: CookAndrewB on November 22, 2019, 08:50:24 PM
Ha ha ha, yes. You took my concept to the next level with that. Very well done, Monkey. It looks like it falls somewhere between my dropship size and a larger multi-section ship. 12" x 8" -ish?

One thing I have tried to do is get the basics knocked out, and as I play on a ship over and over I go back and update. I may (perhaps) get to this level of detail over time, but nobody should hold their breath. lol

This should paint up really well, and I can't wait to see what you do next.

Thank You.

Oh yes! I will be updating this one as I go as well, I just found some wire that I like using as electrical conduits, plus somewhere I have some small electronic resistors and diodes to add as well.

I hoping to get to my Green Stuff and Milliput, to work on a couple of things myself right now. My control panel has all done so far with a hole punch and a utility knife, finding my putties would be so much more useful and easier.

Your ship looks great. I really need to do a ship like this myself.
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project
Post by: War Monkey on November 23, 2019, 09:41:12 PM
I wanted to do a small ship first and this one is 12 1/2 inches long. I used Foamcore Board for the base, a cereal box "Cheerios" and I had a little thicker cardboard, all the white strips where you see two walls coming together to what ever corner there is. I use white printer paper  to cover the gaps and make for a smoother look in the corners, plus it strengthens the walls as well.

This the concept that I was working from, with some changes;

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Tjtb_5UqZhE/XdnLAhtkWZI/AAAAAAAAB7Y/JV7Mi380Wr4r55czyRji70_X_4RxBoIgACEwYBhgL/s1600/Shuttle.jpg)

I wanted a larger crew area/extra storage, a more pronounce small airlock area and a weapons section that looks more like a Gun Tub from a naval ship at the moment.

You can see the view here from top down and compare the two,

More work needs to be done and really hope to have more of it done by the next weekend.

Get her all painted up?

I like this intermediate sized ship, and maybe my next dropship build will be something in this size range. I think this size lends itself to something like an atmosphere capable bulk delivery vehicle. So, if my dropships are like delivery vans this would be more like a Semi truck for larger goods. I could see needing 1-2 of these lol

I have had much time to work on this project this week. I hope to get to some tonight and tomorrow.

Here are a few detail pictures I was able to get to with my camera.

Bridge detail still needs some work.
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-cOjh-1ubqhA/XdoR70rdQmI/AAAAAAAAB7k/A-E0UFnpG8g2QTAW7WmhRHmZXcJl8ZjmQCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/102_1745.jpg)

Airlock section.
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1e_c-oS7IzI/XdoRuARa5lI/AAAAAAAAB7o/HIOU5Ez8mpgeKZQn0cC1L52eMf1hustxACEwYBhgL/s1600/102_1742.jpg)

This is the weapons turret section what really looks like a Gun Tub on some old naval ship but it will work for my needs, still needs more detail work as well.

Everything needs more work still, my advice is not to get too carried away with the details.  ;D

Nice work WM.
Might I suggest you use wire for pipes etc. Just put them straight then staple them across.
Keep it up

Post by: CookAndrewB on November 27, 2019, 01:48:28 PM
That is coming along nicely. Some paint on there will really bring it all together. Nothing wrong with detail, but you can always add more later if you are in a hurry to get it on the table for a game. If not, then just enjoy the process!

What is the black mesh stuff? I like the fineness of that as compared to granny grating.
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (more detail shots)
Post by: War Monkey on November 27, 2019, 03:44:43 PM
Thank You.

The black mesh is fiberglass insect screen, I just so happen to have had some on hand. I want to use granny cloth as pallets for goods and cargo.
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (more detail shots)
Post by: CookAndrewB on November 27, 2019, 04:00:51 PM
I wonder if the little patch kits would have a more reasonable amount of screen, as opposed to several doors' worth.
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (more detail shots)
Post by: War Monkey on November 27, 2019, 09:54:13 PM
Might be, I just went to the local Mom and Pop Hardware store that rescreens screens and asked if it was okay to have a small chunk of old used stuff, they said it was no problem.

I plan on using Cat5 connectors as computers they will need the back cut off and some updating.

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-pYgbLbiRtYM/Vw7CCu8RRdI/AAAAAAAABZ8/ImrylLxaRVodcxNNS5ikQZReZ79jEGe-wCLcB/s1600/102_1345.jpg)

These are the ones I already have, so if you have a bunch of Cat5 connectors and wire laying around now you have another use for them!  :D

Hello again WM,
Would this be good to use as a floor plan? It's on sale at the moment.
I personally like using ready made art & use it as a base.Saves me loads of painting.

Pretty sure those are scaled for larger figs, but I've adjusted print plenty of times in the past for others...

0-hr and Fat Dragon Games are other producers I like, though FDG used to have a lot more ships that where pulled for using Open Design License, which I was promised LONG AGO would be stripped to allow further sale.

So far, no joy.  :'(

Very interested in the Cat-5 connector terminals. I think those are going to paint up splendidly. Easy enough to get my hands on those too!
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (more detail shots)
Post by: War Monkey on December 04, 2019, 03:27:41 PM
zruneload,
Myself and CookAndrewB are scaling the floor plans on a one inch square, I'm taking my leads from Cook, so if you can rescale that down to one inch squares I can't see why not.

I did get some more work done on this project, I have all of the hull interior stuff done, now I just need to work some more on the out areas and the wing section will have time to do so tonight hope to have pictures up soon before painting it and then some after painting it. 
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (more detail shots)
Post by: CookAndrewB on December 04, 2019, 03:38:13 PM
1"/25mm is a pretty good scale for 15mm, I find. A 25mm hallway is big enough to move a 15mm figure down without being too cramped, while still feeling like a hallway. I think most grid maps for RPGs, etc are scaled to 1", though you might find the scale of the sundry items in the image to be out of proportion if it is designed for 28mm. A car, for instance, would be enormous by comparison, even if they are both in a 1" grid. If the mad itself doesn't have anything like couches, cars, etc overlayed, then I can't see why it would matter. Things like pipes, barrels, and signs area all scale agnostic. I've seen huge Las Vegas style signs and smaller "open" signs. Pipes could be something like a water supply pipe in a house, or an oil pipeline pipe. You get the picture. It really until something is a place where you "put your butt" (chairs, cars, toilets, etc) where scale gets weird lol

I manage to get some more work done on this project I didn't get as far as I had hope too but things are moving along. So here are some of the updates;

The bridge is done now,

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4FsP41GGeTM/Xekc9mlB_BI/AAAAAAAAB8U/1wJflN_FmhAfICqYa5dJXvnfxvSt_R1_QCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/102_1754.jpg)

Exterior Air Lock is done,

The nose of the ship is done, looks more like a HEMTT,  lol

This is one of the two engine section now waiting to be complete with panels and alike,

I was hope to start paint it this weekend, that's been pushed back a little but over all I'm very happy how this is moving along
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (work continues)
Post by: CookAndrewB on December 05, 2019, 04:20:07 PM
Nice! I like the engine sections. What did you use to make the sloped edges? shipping labels? Tape? I always forget that I can use shipping labels to soften some hard edges.

That is a LOT of chopping up little bits of card. Good job, man!
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (work continues)
Post by: War Monkey on December 05, 2019, 04:37:31 PM
I just covered them with typing paper and glue, it is some pain staking work but the results are very nice, it is what took up most of my time this week so far, it will also make for a good base for the card stock to stick to as well.

Yes it is a very lot of chopping up card bits.

My game room is being use for storage at the moment while we remodel some of the other rooms, so I am not able to get to my regular tools which are buried in the back of the room. So I had to use what I could find in our desk draws, which was 4 tools, a mechanical pencil, steel ruler, tweezers and a big old box cutter! I did use a hole punch and a circle template a couple of times other then that, just a few jewelry jump rings.
Title: Re: My 15mm Spaceship Project (work continues)
Post by: CookAndrewB on December 05, 2019, 05:12:21 PM
Your tools list is basically what I use for 90% of everything I do lol.

The jewelry rings are a good idea. I could see a lot of use for those. I have some small plastic rings that I use which serve a similar purpose, but the rings I have are maybe 10-12mm? I should look for some smaller nylon washers, Those would be useful.

To see how the shipping labels can be used, check out the Malcy Bogaten Strikes Back blog. You can see the shipping labels used throughout to cover up everything from dominoes to jenga blocks, and they look pretty stellar! https://malcybogaten.blogspot.com/2017/07/preparations-of-various-builds.html (https://malcybogaten.blogspot.com/2017/07/preparations-of-various-builds.html)

I suspect that it would save a bit of time on your method, just by them sticking down by themselves, without the glue? Depending on how you go about it, they make relatively interesting panel lines by themselves. Very subtle things that get picked up by dry brushing.

Check out any Bead Shop where they have loose beads, they will also have lots of findings and charms stuff too, many of them can be used for other needs many of the barrel findings can be used for shipping barrels, fantasy vases for plants, some could be used as cactus or other small plants too. You can find very fine chains too for having around in the shipping hold or to strap down cargo.  :D

Shipping labels could work well, I'll have to look into those. Thanks

Okay so I had some time to work on this Project, so I worked on the rear of the engines, and here's a look at them

Left Engine.

Over all so far.

More is really needed but I feel I have done the hardest part so far and the rest should move along much faster now.

He used to post around here. I bet you can look up his old threads. He is pretty prolific when he is creating, but things seem to have slowed a bit lately. Glad you liked it. I have a laundry list of blogs I check in on because of the inspiration I get.

Post by: War Monkey on December 16, 2019, 04:44:57 PM

Thanks, I have to paint it up "New" then dirty it down, I'm thinking a brown wash might do the trick, still have some more painting to do.

I think brown looks "Earth dirty" but I'm not sure how much grunge on a spaceship ends up being familiar brown dirt. I've mostly gone with black with the idea that perhaps it is stuff that has scorched during atmospheric operations but I have tried to stay away from traditional dirt ideas. I think the idea of weathering in space is an interesting one, overall. No right answers from all that I can tell. Looking at pictures of a space shuttle mostly just shows a pretty clean vessel. I'm using a world with blue dirt for my sci-fi project, which leads me to believe that some of the weathering and wash should be blue, though I'm not sure how much that will show on top of something that isn't a pretty light color. It might also be "weird" to observe since we don't think of dirt/dust as being blue. Somehow I think we can make the leap with Mars red, but I've been leery to try blue for fear that it will just look odd.

Either way, I'm looking forward to the clean version and follow-on dirty version.

Nice work!

Looking forward to seeing pics too.

Of course, while I'm just trying to get beyond using paper/poster deck plans, with a 3-D interior, you've gone and raised the bar by doing a nice interior AND exterior. 

I find that sometimes black can be a little too stark, depending upon the effect desired, and the color(s) of the vehicles.  A nice medium to dark gray might work too, though it is your vessel and design, so feel free to ignore or use as you see fit.

Thanks for the idea Dan, I haven't started a crew for this project yet, I haven't even come up with a name for the ship as of yet either.

So starting a crew I think should be my next project.

I have already started a background for a planet that all the adventures will be played on or from.

Much like CookAndrewB has going on there, so they can be infected with xenomorphs, so the crew of this ship can find before they and the ship to be infected with xenomorphs plus other stuff as well!

It needs some fine tuning to finish it up but it is ready for game play. I hope to start on them soon, I have a few other things that in line to be done first before I can start on them.

I'm still working out some details on paper for them before I start the work on them.

Okay, So I had some time to myself because My Wife is out of town for the weekend.   :D

I manage to build and paint this project in just a couple of days. I really like the looks of it and I know I can use it in other games as well, such as Post Apocalyptic. 

The Jones Brothers new home;

I just remembered that I didn't give any measurements for the containers project concept that I am going with.

Okay so small containers are 1 1/2 inches wide (37mm) by 2 1/2 inches long (63mm) the exterior walls are 1 inch tall (25mm) the interior wall are 3/4 of an inch tall (19mm), which what I used in this project would be three of them in my other projects the larger container will be 1 1/2 inches wide (37mm) by 5 inches long (126mm).

The doorways are 1 inch wide (25mm) and the windows are 7/16ths by 7/16ths (10mm by 10mm), I just measured 10mm down from the top of the wall. 

I hope this helps if anyone wishes to do this project as well

Do you ďsealĒ the surfaces with Mod Podge (or similar) before painting?

Dan
Title: Re: My 15mm Projects (Bar & Grill Greasy Spoon 1/18/2020)
Post by: War Monkey on January 18, 2020, 10:08:44 PM
No, I seal it all with a clear matte finish after it's  all finish.

If I feel like I need to coat it, I use clear water base Polycrylic  from Minwax  it drys fast and very thin with out build up that you might get with Mod Podge and because it drys so thin less likely to see brush  strokes

No, you have to get the "Water Base" Min wax Polycrilic, the stuff is like painting with milk, we have furniture  that we have refinished  with it and has stayed clear for years, like to use it on some of my minis that I feel will get a lot of use, just one lite coat then do a matte finish  afterwards.

Great stuff, I love watching these WIPs!

Your (and CookAndrewB's) terrain style is quite different from mine. You are working with playable interiors, while I'm geared toward set dressing. Your style makes me think of X-Com, while mine is more Red Alert 2 (or perhaps Desperados - Wanted dead or alive).

Burmmie, thanks for the idea, I have a Night Club of sorts all planned  out, now I'll  have to go back and add a stage, of course  the building's  construction  will be different  the the container ones.

But next up is a general  store, one has to have a place to by their supplies from!

Garage  and shop as two pieces sounds like a great idea! What I just thought of is maybe a couple of warehouses. I do need a boarding house or a hotel of some kind. After all out of towners  need some place to rest their heads.

I would do something like a Japanese pod hotel where your room was as big as a coffin. Probably make it so that you paid for your room through a vending machine type gadget. "E-2... what do you mean I didn't pay enough? It says it is 80 credits! I put in 80 credits! E-2... dangit! Fine, G-3... what? How did the door get stuck halfway open?!" *shakes building vigorously to try and get the door to pop all the way open* "Hey, buddy, can I borrow 80 credits? Yeah, the door is halfway open so I'm thinking that if I buy G-3 again it will open all the way and you can have the second night." lol

That a nice idea, it just that I have something a little bit bigger in mind, but I could have a cheap travelers section to which the pods would work very nicely.

Thank You, to all of you for the kind words.

I have started work on the general  store, but an idea hit me, not all of the building in my spaceport or colony should be made of shipping  containers.

So I'm putting the store on hold for just a bit, to hammer out this idea which I hope to show results  in a few days.

Thank You,

We'll I'm back on working on the store.

My idea for buildings and homes for those who live a higher standard if living, is coming out nicely. I'm just trying  to  figure out how I want the final details to look.

Okay so I have the general store built now all I have to do is paint it now but I just wanted you all to have a look at before hand.

Store front.

Interior.

The back of the place.

I tried  my hand at making it look like adobe walls being added to the exterior which I think turned out well.

Well this is it so far again it's  waiting  to be painted

Thanks for looking

Doug

Okay something I have been working on the side, it's my concept of a 3D  printed home. I figure in the future homes and other buildings would be done this way.

Honey I'm Home!

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zxClDDYap3M/XkQ7_j2Ge8I/AAAAAAAACHg/oqCKeEYsoDwj8To82iE3HIlmV6SaL27ewCEwYBhgL/s1600/20200212_113308.jpg)

How was your day?

Let's just relax on the back patio.

I still need to add interior walls and other finishing details. I do plan to make more buildings in this style, I think it would add more depth to my colony, the have's and the have not's.

Thanks for looking.

Doug

I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I'm doing this all with my small tablet, my computer took a major dump, that's okay a new one is on it's way.
