I'm Currently working on this:

Landing pad ideas by oldben1, on Flickr

I am going to keep it simple as I want to move on to other projects.  I also want to keep the 'look' of the Brigade Games domes I already have.

Landing pad design looks interesting.

Been wanting to make one of them, or more, myself.

Those precut, Styrofoam rings they have in craft stores, for making wreaths would work, if you want a walled, sunken pad, for more security.  Just need to apply some good, solid putty over the exterior, to get the desired effect, and to protect it from damage.  Cut in a sliding access door, and perhaps add some greeblies to the exterior, and top, to add interest. 

They make various sizes, so should be fairly easy to find something to meet your needs, as far as spacecraft size goes.  15mm is certainly easier, from that aspect.

Hey,
I looked into the floral ring thing actually, I try and stay away from styrofoam.  I couln't find the right size anyways,

Thank you everyone for the compliments.

Here"s what I"ve built so far.  Ive also added some quick paint.  I know my starships are too small, but the effect is the same.  It still needs a ton of weathering, posters, and some numbers on the side.

I really want the pad to match my other Brigade Model buildings.

Finally finished this project, sort of happy.  It ended up being a lot bigger than I wanted to house the falcon.  I added some posters, landing pad signage, and some weathering.  Not the best pictures, sorry.

Thanks!

It was a revell snap together kit that came out with the second to last star wars movie.  It is too small really and has the wrong radar dish.  I'm done battling the whole scale thing,  I'll end up buying a kenner falcon and plunking it down on the table!
