Well, like the title states, I'm building an HQ. I have a long ways to go but figured I'd put up some pics for anyone that's interested... lol! ...working on level 1:

The floor:

The RZ HQ build thread... XReDITC

Had some help:

The RZ HQ build thread... 4XT54zF

From underneath:

The RZ HQ build thread... YYLKmg4

Hmmm, I walk away for a second and this happens...DANCE PARTY  cheers

The RZ HQ build thread... A767BIx

Anyway, back to work:

The RZ HQ build thread... Bc2oXso

So who's holding up the wall? We brought in some "muscle":

The RZ HQ build thread... PA85ptM

Got that done, I have one more wall to do but I'm waiting because I may make this longer  lol! :

The RZ HQ build thread... 9g4BwWq

Bought these at Hobby Lobby for the walls, grabbed the whole stack, lol, the poor girl who had to count them all  lol! :

The RZ HQ build thread... MWLLcZB

Not a great pic, but you get the idea, after the glue dries then I'll trim them to size:

The RZ HQ build thread... IedM8Ps

A few friends stopped by:

The RZ HQ build thread... EpWZCbP

Onto the door. I cut this from foam board. I think it's going right here:

The RZ HQ build thread... 7HdoGlF

Made a second piece to go behind it for the actual doors:

The RZ HQ build thread... 25YdRzx

The RZ HQ build thread... TMGGAZV

Hmmm, what color for the door? I'll use this, it's Silver Metallic:

The RZ HQ build thread... PNAyvE5

Seems this stuff does bad things to foam board  lol! ...I know! I'll paint some posterboard and glue it on!:

The RZ HQ build thread... VIe5GBf

I bought this "door seam maker" off of ebay... lol! :

The RZ HQ build thread... AGceYpB

Painted the trim and here it is...needs detailing, tho...

The RZ HQ build thread... 0VoRJNb

Anyway, that's it for now...gotta go, I'm hearing dance music from my 1/6 room AGAIN!

Thank you Jim! And skj! here's a quick little update...
Every HQ needs a loud speaker....here's mine...I took the cover off of one of those things you plug into a wall outlet to drive away mice, etc...a bit of paint and...

The RZ HQ build thread... SDoEQfx

This is just for scale...Joe will NOT have to hold this thing up...calm down, Joe activists... lol!

The RZ HQ build thread... EeF5Jc0

Hmmm, while I was at it, I figured an intercom next to my fake door would be appropriate...oh, what you can do with the filter from a really old smokeless ashtray and some shelf liner...

The RZ HQ build thread... KjQhrWz

Ok, I'm thinking right about here...

The RZ HQ build thread... 4aynKOB

Now for a button....hmmmm, maybe this little lego looking thing...just gotta cut it down a bit...

The RZ HQ build thread... AydOL6b

Not too bad a job for eyeballing it after 7 beers and a few shots...

The RZ HQ build thread... LT7wOkd

Why is that I can put a tiny piece of plastic where I want it everytime UNTIL! I put glue on it...then it becomes animated...anyway, this was the idea...

The RZ HQ build thread... IvS8gkY

A quick coat of flat black and then a few coats of blue for the intercom button...Why a few coats? Razz is a cheap S.O.B...

The RZ HQ build thread... GJNYMHl

I try to add what I feel are the necessities, things that are vital for my HQ to survive...and THIS is what I get in return...

The RZ HQ build thread... HgtDstl

Until the next update..."HEY! You guys are working in there, right?"

Nice progress, Bill!

Ya know, what i have always wanted to see someone do (but am too lazy/cheap to try myself) in one of these
home made HQ's is, you know how they have all the TV monitors located along the top of the walls in
the ATHQ (?) would be to mount a few iPods in place of them. So, instead of having photos of the figures on
various missions in various settings you would actually have a real screen with a photo. You
could even have them with moving images.

well, it was just an idea... scratch geek scratch

Thanks for sharing the updates on The RZ HQ build. It’s the smallest things that makes up the details on a HQ. Really looking forward to seeing how the computer centre is going to look once it’s finished.
