Some of you might remember my initial mock-up of the computers and consoles for a missile or other Cold War bunkers:

Well, I decided to start adding buttons to the darn things, starting with a piece "inspired" by this:

And so here it is, with a guy who could pass for an older "John Connor", after he gets settled in at Crystal Peak*. It still needs to be painted, of course:

So … what do you think of that first piece? I might make the screen a little bit dome-like though. The styrene sheet I used is the Evergreen 1/16" tile.

Thanks

Woo Hoo! Love it! Moar!

Although, in the picture it looks like he is trying to use a soldering gun on his screen.

Glad you like it!

I'll see if I can work on a few more types of workstations this week.

Nice job. If you ever get to Arizona try a visit to the Titan Missile museum. You get to go around the control room and possibly turn the key! Plenty of inspiration there.

Great stuff! How could we live without sheet styrene, especially the textured stuff.

Cacique Caribe19 Mar 2018 7:54 p.m. PST

Vigilant, I would love to turn that key!

Captain Beefheart, I have a hard time thinking to a time when styrene wasn't there to get me out of a bind. :)

PS. By the way, those black knobs/dials are these little 2mm guys:

Guys

What was this supposed to be?

Were the Soviets playing around with miniatures while they were locked inside their missile bunkers?

And, on a different note, check out these Cold War era futuristic sci-fi control panels:

By the way, the 6mm "screen" domes* that I ordered arrived finally today, so now the piece looks pretty much finished. Ready to paint (or make a mold).

What do you think now? Better?

I also got other nice little geometric "bits" in the mail, so I can finally move on to finish up other types of workstations.
