Thanks for the comments.
To answer the questions;

I'm going to try lighting it at the weekend.
If it was spaced of the wall it would probably produce quite a nice halo of light.

I've not going to build the rest, it's just too big to display - though a small section of tunnel around it might look pretty good. I'll look into that.

I'd like to make a few more, but as the Cap'n has said he's bringing one out I think it only fair to give him the first opportunity.

I'll post more images as it develops.

Phil

Default Travel Tube Kit now ready to depart....

Hi Guys,

The Travel Tube laser cut kit is ready, all the technical details are worked out.

All the images you see are "straight out of the box" parts and basically shows the whole kit less the paperwork and door panels. I have etched the different layers to make part placement easy.

The process is pretty much: light sand the parts, dibbity dab some liquid cement to fix the parts in place and paint white. The hardest part of the assembly is cutting the tube into 16 lengths.

All EMA parts are included in the kit along with everything else you need to produce one end plate at studio scale. The pictures are a little difficult to see and I will re-shoot this when painted but it is useful to see how things go together.

Studio Scale kit Prototype @ 12" diameter:



The Price is 49.50 + postage - There are 10 kits in the first batch and we will start shipping soon, Chris is adding the ordering details to the Captain's Store today.

Cap'n

I've been thinking about the travel tube cars, and there's a way to reconcile the standing set and the model. Let's assume that there's a mechanical room on the end opposite the cargo area. The stock model shot therefore shows a maintenance hatch, and the double doors in the cargo area are never seen. The mechanical room could contain ventilation equipment, emergency air supplies (in the event the tube is exposed to vacuum), and motor elements. The model (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/sfx_films/ttube1.jpg) is quite a bit more elongated than the standing set, and, with the exception of the side door position, would support this notion.

Again pondering travel tubes... There's a huge design issue with Alpha as shown, at least in the first season. Consider: any travel tube that cuts through a building would render either side inaccessible to each other except by crossing through a stopped tube car. Second season suggested underground levels to Alpha which would give you a way under the obstacle. I recall doing a calculation on the floor area of Alpha once long ago, and it's pretty big--large enough to make a staff of only 400 or so incapable of maintaining so large a facility, so I generally dismiss suggestions of any large underground sections.
