Round main hulls.
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Monday, January 6, 2020 3:20 PM

        Some spaceships we all visualize are not always done with Chotskes all over the outside; Here's a way to do round or oval hulls and main power pods for those interstellar craft. That in some cases can be almost bare.

       Plastic Eggs. I am sure many have hopped on this idea . I just wanted to remind all of you. These, coupled with small, P.V.C.Pipe and plastic Boxes of different shapes can do the kind of ships and types that starred in 2001- A Space Odessey and such. Or you can do all kinds of Space escape pods with full interiors that you can see through the sides!

      You know what else works for an unusual ship? Albeit on a small scale. Those Faceted jewelry boxes. Four in a row,coupled by a short section of pipe and then a large egg end for the F.T.L Focusing Cone. Little beads and large beads all over in rounds or halves for laser and kinetic gun mounts.

      Shall I continue? Okay,Where do you get your interiors for the large ships. Well, what's wrong with the salvaged innards from a Polaris Missile Sub or a German U Boat ?

      Nope, the engine room can contain two small U.S.S. Long Beach or N.S. savannah reactors and Lottsa Chotschkes!! Look carefully, if you,ve never done one before, At the surface of the ships in the Star Wars sagas. How many Tank, Ship, Car and Aircraft parts can you identify on those surfaces? Believe me when I say there can be hundreds!
