Also featuring another sci-fi mechanic from CP, this one painted up in the grey jumpsuit and yellow boots of my Moon Communists. He's the one with the sledgehammer.DSCN1058.thumb.JPG.987fcfe1995dba40b8c32c4fc1f0b483.JPG

I love this old retro tech! Easy-to-assemble MDF from Crooked Dice, and a bargain at that.

He'll need some low-g WD-40 too. 🙂

 

I like the mini...he works perfect as a blue-collar space mechanic. Excellent job on the terrain, too. It evokes the feel I used to get on really boring school field trips, which fits a monitoring station perfectly. The various screens and keyboards have a ton of life to them, and those tape reels give it a real retro-futuristic vibe.

Hmmm, if a computer doesn't work a slight tap sometimes works.

That sledgehammer seems a little like overkill to me!

Hey, they build to last on the Moon--you need a gentle tap that outperforms a meteor strike! 😄

Nice model! But where is the repairman’s duct tape and bailing wire?

I'm assuming in one of those pouches, but you're right--there's gotta be a good way to make tabletop-scale duct tape rolls.

Like the 5 oclock shadow - loooove the terrain (swoon)

Thank you--I very much like the Cold War-era machines the 7tv line of Crooked Dice puts out.

Oh for sure. I remember a field trip to a concrete factory, and it probably inspired some of this. Not QUITE in the tape-reel era, but you could tell the upgrade was recent!

I love those reel-to-reel tape drives! Worth your time to glue 'em together if you have the energy and parts, and they're versatile for a great many settings!

That's why I got them. But it's more my space gets invaded by others and there isn't enough time to clean it up so I can use it.
