Hi guys

I am new to the whole scratch building so i started with something small and easy. First time i seen the token for the escape pod i thought **** why is not there a model for it. So here is my take on it. Unfortunately i lost somewhere pictures of the initial stages of building because i started over year ago with this project and never got time to finish it until now, so just for the picture the main body is made from cardboard center cutouts from the large ship bases i just glue enough of them together then roughly shape it down with sand paper, then applied layer of Tamiya putty i found out lying around from my airplane hobby days and used sand paper to get to the final shape. Then i created the details from sturdy paper,paint it cut and drill the token so it fits some Litko plastic stand i have lying around and vouala escape pod to save is here

And here are some midway and final pictures.


sharp eye can see paper made Mining guild tie fighter + wings those are for my asteroid base project i am working on now

lovely work, but just so you know, the Micromachines escape pod is probably about the same size judging from the pics...
