A) Does anyone make Cold War Era computers and other underground terrain bits that you might be using for 15mm SF or Post Apocalyptic gaming?

B) Or if you have been building your own pieces from scratch, could you share some pictures and/or tutorials? Perhaps using Lego bits or other well-known items?

I can just imagine some post apocalyptic Survivors going back and re-occupying some of those archaic sites, and perhaps using some of the stand-alone units, like "Crystal Peak" was used at the end of Terminator 3.

Terminator Salvation also had similar props of old units brought back into use.

By the way, these are for 28mm but will give you an idea of what I'm inquiring about for 15mm:

There is a guy on Shapeways that has 1/100th scale computers and other items for 15mm sci fi. I have a few of his pieces – a medical station, a couple of beds, and other furniture. I recall he had computers.

Roger,

Please let me know if you recall the name. I've been going through several pages of Shapeways stuff (1/00 and even 1/87) and haven't spotted them yet.

Thanks,

Dan

could it be the "national cheese emporium" on the shapeways site? Have a look at the 15mm stuff on the menu to see if it fits the bill

hope it helps

TonicNH,

I love his stuff. I bought some stanchions when he first started, precisely for an underground base setup. He has definitely expanded. Well done Jav!

I guess if painted the right colors, and if I added a little more bulk to the backing, these "workstations" could work:

Just for fun, I grabbed a bunch of Legos and tried to come up with a rough mock-up of what I hope someone will make for 15mm in the future, either out of MDF, resin or 3-D printing.
