Escape Pod body for you to print. There is a solid "disk" equator or a cored option. It's up to you to figure out a mounting system. The divots around the equator are for the Sealab body caps to nestle into - I hope I got the depth right on that one. At least it gives you their locations!
I MIGHT MODIFY THESE AFTER I PRINT ONE... but for those of you who like to live fast and loose:

Do you have the major dimensions of the body? My Ultimaker 2 bed is just a few mm too small to print the STL directly. I can see this in Cura immediately. When I import the STL into Fusion to try and section it into parts that will fit, the dimensions seem to go haywire. The equator ring seems to be 1.8 metres in diameter!

Not on hand. you can't open something in Cura and see dims, even if it's too big for your bed? I use idea maker. Anything else, I have no idea. Sorry.

I also have an Ultimaker 2, it's to small but I sliced the main parts, not ideal but I think it's doable.

Let me know if you need them.

In Cura, you can see the dimensions of the bounding box of the imported object. However, this doesn't always help as you can see with the main body. It should also have a square bounding box since it is conical - but if you look in the bottom right corner it doesn’t. I think this is because one of the cutouts intersects the bounding box on one side (middle of picture). The escape pod is quite a bit bigger than I realised.

I think there might be an easy fix, but I need to read some manuals. motionminded Thanks for the offer. I might take you upon on that.

It's just to big to print on the Ultimaker, in height it will, not in diameter. You have to split it. I am printing as we speak...

Is the Revell Phantom F-4J part confirmed from a 1/24 Kit? I only can find the existence of an 1/32 vintage kit...

Read the first post.
Thanks very much for doing this Jason! Just wondered if there were any updates on the castings by Mr Geigle and how things are going? I haven't contacted him directly to ask but at the same time there's no mention of this on his FB page so thought I'd ask here. Cheers.

Awesome, Jason! Definitely watching this and will be buying a kit when they're ready. I won't print the main body until you've had a chance to test everything and update if needed.

THANKS for doing this!
