Inspired by some terrain builds I've seen online, I started making some 3D printed hex solar panel terrain.

Neat idea. Keep us apprised of your progress. Can't wait to see the final product.

Those could serve as radar antennae/sensor arrays, as well. They could also represent the James Webb space telescope. Cheers!

Very good idea, and well executed!

Thanks guys!
Good call on also using these for sensor arrays. I hadn't thought of that.

There was a ST: Next Gen episode wherein the crew looked in on a failed sensor array on the Cardassian(?) border. I believe it had hexagon arrays, similar to this. Cheers!

I've finished up the base of the solar array.
