    Thanks for the info/tuto part of that article Dave! I should invest into a slush-casting machine;)

    My home cinema would look amazing with one of these on display. Amazing work.

    I'm sorry, no. I only make a limited number for family and friends each and then destroy the molds and patterns.

    This was a scratch build, not from a kit.

    Cool article. Science actually applied to some of the stuff they did is intriguing... Your pod looks great! Recently inspired me to dig out my old EP build from under one bench (been there for two years)… and get it to a point of weathering finally.

    Masterpiece Models will be selling everything you need to make a pod, minus the plating and pod itself. I am almost done getting everything set, and will send it all to them after Christmas passes. All from original styrene, no castings of castings. With the consultation of Quincy and some cross-checking ref from an ILMer, the Sealab brace parts are oriented correctly! Even the tank treads will be part of the set, cast in a rubbery resin! I even printed the round wire for the top, because why not.
