Still in the process of moving interstate, so i have paused printing car bodies for the time being, having enough to keep me busy for a year or so.

I was looking at some of the buildings and came across one of my old Scalextric control towers

 So i decided to do a homegrown version

Then i thought why stop there .......

Then it sort of got out of control a bit ......

Needed a communications array for these modern times

I printed some signage for the front of the building, i originally was going to print it directly to the front and side sections but it works out easier to just print them separately and paint them to suite

Found a free program AniConv, that allows you to convert most jpeg files into STL files for 3D printing, most of the ones above are from photos of logos, these are all on a 3D filament (plastic) printer, a resin printer would print them with far better detail.

Having said that the plastic still turned out ok.

Found the original speakers on Thingiverse, and printed out just fine.

There's benches, tables and floors in each level, and only the side are glued together, the roofs come off and the levels can be separated to add figures and to run wires for lighting.

As i said, only a little bit out of control, luckily it all the levels come apart for easy packing.

Nice work Gary,

Good that you have made the signage interchangeable.

@gazzaThey look aweseme mate.

Thanks Matt / Oldskool

Yeh it was a bit silly and time consuming to print individual buildings, the single signage is a lot easier and more sensible.

I like the communications array, so discrete.

Don't take this the wrong way, I really like it too but it reminded me of something from Star Wars, looks cool.

 


The people in charge don't know what they are doing, but they have no idea that they have no idea what they are doing.

I'm going to print another one around half the size, i've also found a couple of different ones as well, might do a cut and shut combo.

I could put a SG1 Event Horizon on the roof, just to be different.

Or as a swimming pool on the side.

Always thought the SG1 Stargate would be a great entrance into the Slot man-cave

Flashing lights and all, lol

They make a model of it complete with all the flashy things, and there is a couple of versions you can download and print

'Steam Punk' sculptures sell for big money. The comms tower is brilliant.
