No others I remember. I never did quite work out why they thought it would be ok just to sidle up to the blue onion and let Alan return to Alpha with their only means of escape.

If you could get hold of a plastic pod I think you'd find it easier to work with than a PE one.

If you go to this thread

http://www.eagletransporter.com/foru...ead.php?t=4861

you can see how KKerimis has actually constructed a pod using blue prints. This would let you not only make the interior you want but also make the exterior around it rather than trying to force everything into an existing box that wasn't made for it. There are a couple of threads with people's work on pod interiors that are well worth the look

I also pondered using the PE metal pod, but that meant using electric drills and tools I don't normally use in my modeling work in order to cut through the hatch and make other necessary modifications.

On the plastic front, I had several extra ERTL/Airfix pods in my parts box, but they are somewhat inaccurate (not to mention shorter than a PE pod), so I dropped that idea also.

This thread shows some of my efforts on completely scratch building a pod. Takes a bit of work, but the advantage to starting from scratch is you don't spend a lot of time trying to work around other people's problems.

http://www.eagletransporter.com/foru...ead.php?t=4391

Turned out to be time consuming, but getting the exterior shape of the pod wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. The biggest trick is figuring out how much smaller to make an interior wall compared to an exterior wall. If you haven't done any scratch work before you might want to try to just make a basic pod exterior first to get some experience.

Its more or less done, i decided to leave the seats we see in the standard pod out, and just have the space free for equipment etc. Once the outer shell is on, you cant see too much anyway.
Im pretty happy with the final result, things like the Alpha test pattern TV screens give it some nice detail.

And the rescue unit 7 decal being visable through the open door , just make the final product, the pics dont really do it justice, but getting close ups of these details isnt easy

Default Small world indeed.....

.....and this is the first time I've seen this particular thread, and it's amazing! The scale's tiny, yet you've made everything look so good. The standard of all your workmanship is so high, but the idea for the helmets is simply inspired. This is why the Forum is so wonderful - you think you've seen it all and then, suddenly, this kind of project pops up.

Wonderful, wonderful, and thanks for posting all of the pictures.

Kindest regards

Patrick

Thanks again for the kind words, I tend to orbit forums with the frequency of Halleys comet, so for those i missed last time like Bishop cheers and thank you

Heres a shot of a cockpit build again an old airfix 12 incher



It has an orange LED with the batterys on the pod section



The cockpit windows were filed out and replaced with thin perspex so i get that cheery orange glow we see in some production shots from the show
