Thanks. Any pointers about how I can make the interior more accurate would be appreciated. I'm a fiend for accuracy, even if it means a build takes 5 years, as this 1/6th scale T2 Harley Fatboy did. Designed and printed new tires with accurate tread pattern, reworked exhaust system and a bunch of other stuff.

The greebly box…they had glove boxes back then…incubators also have holes about that far apart…foreshadowing the Starchild?

Decided to poke my nose down the rabbit hole and have started mapping out the interior. Basic paper prints of the layout drawn up using Rhino, with reference to Tom Reddie's work and of course screen shots. Either I photo-etch the panels or 3d print them. I'm going to need a high res printer for the decals.

Hey Folks!

Here’s my second Moebius 1/8 Scale 2001: A Space Odyssey EVA Pod.


I built my first one back in October for a good friend of mine, and now I have finally gotten around to building my own.

If you jump over to IMGUR, you can follow the full build process if the captions don't show in the embed.

If you just want to see the finished shots, I've posted them below.

I learned a lot on the first one, and while I feel like I did a lot of stuff better on this one, part of my wants ONE MORE chance to make it perfect. But not right now. First I need a break and to build something with tons of weathering. No more pure white finishes for me.

If you want to compare, you can find my first build here



After market parts include:
Paragrafix Photo Etch set

Paragrafix Screen Transparencies

it should! It looks amazing. I'm getting up the nerve to attempt mine and if it turns out even half as good as yours I'll be happy!
