Boxfile Spaceship Module 3 complete
Lorks-a-lordy, here's a sight more unexpected than the flag the North Korean Olympic Women's football team ran out to. After a brief hiatus of only 2 years the third module of my Boxfile Spaceship project gets wheeled out. To those of you who have not shared my trip on the blogisphere that long this is part of my Lunchtime Project series (hobby work I do in my lunch break funnily enough). The first two sections were a central accommodation section and a cargo/loading bay section. Here we have engineering:
Pretty much a shell filled with large pieces of equipment to create a cramped environment. I'm sure the majority of you can recognise that I've looted some old computers for heatsinks, fans, etc. No doors have been added as they are going to be flexible between the various sections. As a note I'm going to ditch the magnetic door on washer idea as seen at the end of the section 2 post as it's a bit ugly when the door isn't there. I hope to develop a way of incorporating the doors into a clipping system to hold the boxes in place as well.
The next section is planned to include the control deck. I'll try and take some WIP pictures by way of a "how-to" article.
