Quite a few surface types in this one, should be fun to paint up!

You can say that again!
Some pics - it's almost done! I still have to finish a ramp and a ladder to access the structure from the base.

The aft control station, and the cryogenic chamber - I sprayed the latter with shadow spray to make it suitable opaque, to appear frozen.


The control station in place:


The view aft:


The cryogenic chamber in place:


The inside of the chamber:


Soothe and protect:


Lighting for the interior (no, that's just sunlight, they do not really light up):


A roof added by the scrapping crew:


The interior:




The exterior:

Thanks guys.
But I am not going to make it.
The build is done - I had one tiny item to finish, the steps leading up to the chamber thingy, and completed it today. It's a bit nostalgic as it reminds me a lot of my shipbuilding (1:1 scale) days.

There is no way I will manage to undercoat and paint it by this evening of course - the gale and rain are not helping, obviously - there's actually an out of control tanker threatening to mess up our shoreline, it's that bad. Hopefully they'll get it under control, can't be fun out there.

I will finish this one - I invested too many precious bits which have been lying in wait for years to let it rot.

Honestly, would anyone mind if you turned it in a couple days late? We already extended it anyway.

Thanks guys, but I missed the extension and fair's fair. Anyway, work is relentless at the moment, so it's unlikely I could manage anything more than a rush job. But I appreciate it.
Also, having seen the entries, the competition is quite tough to beat!  :D :D :D

Exactly  lol
I did start painting it, however, and at the speed I am going, if voting were to wait for me it would be in March all right, 2023 though.
I started with the cryogenic chamber itself, and that's nearly done; the poor frozen lad is next. Since the main component used is part of a vending machine, I also started painting a vending machine (28 mm scale) to include it in the interior of the thing. This was more fun than I thought it would be. Still not one yet, so no pics for now. I do intend to finish this, so I will continue updating this thread slooooooowly.
