Air Traffic Control Tower, the templates for which were supplied by the (probably well known) Bugbait... as found on Warseer. I know what your thinking.. "the first one is still in pieces how can you be doing a MkII?" However, not long into the process I realised that there were many things which I couldn't let pass! The base panel was not an accurately drawn shape, with odd dimensions... and the fins appeared equally drawn "by eye". I'm known for managing to fudge a finish... but you can't start off in that manner!
Forge World Aeronautica tower as inspiration (as seen in the first image of this post). But for some reason it doesn't seem quite right... The second evoluation brought it a little back in line with Bugbaits angled design... though I could see that constructing this out of foamboard could be a little flimsy.
The design on the left looks like a more finalised mock up. It is still work in progress, but it has some features nabbed from Bugbaits design & the Forge World model. Importantly, it is based on an octagon, just like the Forge World airbase scenery, and has the angled fins too. The control room includes an internal core shaft so that chaps can go up and down without getting wet!
Importantly though, there is a degree of simplification in the components that make up the model, this one will use a combination of foamboard and plasti-card / card stock.
I will be able to use this model to set out a sheet of templates which can then be used to cut pieces out of foamboard and plasti-card. So, hopefully the next time I post about this, I'll be able to show you those templates!
