Some progress:

More stuff in the engine room:


These pipes will go under the floor:


Said floor (prior to the installation of the pipes):


The cryogenic chamber taking shape:


The reflectors will go on the sloping 'bed' surface.

Why is there a bamboo fence (the base of which was sawn off)?

Managed to get some work done at last.
This is starting to feel like seven different projects:
the port side (it's part of a spaceship, so the term fits, I guess)
the starboard side
aft exterior
interior - front open space
interior - cryogenic chamber
interior - machinery space
other bits

Here's a few pics.

Machinery space - not much progress here.


Front open space - some additional bits.


Starboard side - there's a door and some bits, but still quite empty.


Port side - starting to look rather busy.


Lots more to do. Just for fun, a pic of the work area (a tiny square surface on home-made trestles).

Thanks. Many of them are - the coin dispenser ox itself; the internet connection panel which looks like part of the bridge of a boat; the green panels; the circuit board; a few of the pipes (not the smaller bore ones); the metal perforated sheet; a TV cable connector and a couple of electrical connectors; the telephone connector components to port and starboard - and more to come.
There's also the spherical cover of a LED, a couple of cat treat container tops, and some bits of sprues (plastic and laser cut).

It looks very effective - and reminds me not to throw anything away in case it turns out to be useful for a build!

I do warn you that that is the road to madness, wargames
room full of boxes, along with full shed, double garages etc.
I know!  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks guys. Speaking of which (stuff found, that is), I found a mysterious ABS component today, which seems to (again) be part of a vending machine! It will make a brilliant structure for Necromunda-like settings.

Not much of an update today, but here's some bits of wood.


These have a lot to do with the next item...


I decided to make a splash of this, and will be placing the chamber on the 2' x 2' aquarium backdrop. That's where the bits of wood come in: I could have placed it on the backdrop; or embedded it in, digging a hole for it or building up debris; or go for something different. The correct term for these would be keel blocks, although the chamber is part of a spaceship and does not really have a keel. It will be part of something abandoned - for some reason - on keel blocks in a desert. The absurdity appeals to me  :D

Tiny bit of work on the setting for the cryogenic chamber - it's now starting to look like a tiny part of a ship in a wrecking yard (or at least, that's the idea).



A piece of rainwater drain broken off the garage by accident (honest!) will become a space ship propulsion tube segment used as a crude shelter.



Not sure about the Playmobil skip - I am more interested in its potential contents, which could add to the narrative.



Here's one of the in-progress accesses to the chamber - I still have to make the steps.



The patterned steel plate at the base of the staircase is regular plasticard with a bit of this stuck on:



I bought this place mat sort of thing to use as wire netting, but it worked this way too.
The Nivea stick is not an indication I have chafed lips, but is something else which will be used.

Unlike his lips, obviously...  :D

This is going to ooze with atmosphere and narrative once finished; very cool!
