A space station! Like, an entire space station diorama! What an amazing project!

And the customized gear and equipment are totally brilliant! I love the whole retro-future vibe in your photos!

So... two large Electronics Flight Cases from a local recycling centre......

After cutting out one side as a pair of symmetrical trapezia  clown I side mounted one as a base and the other as a wall to extend out the diorama. Then by cutting and shaping the inner aluminium case from a second case I created the side platforms to make the end case lids look like side sections and then cut out 106mm holes with a hole cutter to create the windows, with CD case lids mounted behind for glass.

The rest was training tower sections, bottom tier inside, top tier for the end lids, fitted some Micronauts exploration lab bits for robot arms, some jets from the VAM pursuit craft as air-conditioning, training tower top section and the back of a VAM helicopter for the 'mechanics deck section, There is a SeaWolf chair to play a part in a shoot, and fitted some Varicolour LED lights to add some tone and atmosphere.

the rest is a bit of paint detailing and use of the mounting bits that were rattling around in the case anyway.

upside down carpet tiles for the walkways.. and innards out of a small PC router for the wall mounted control board with some repainting and drybrushing for colour highlights..

The rest is just play, imagination and always buy quality drill bits, jigsaw blades and definitely a decent hole cutter! Twisted Evil

More to come Twisted Evil
