A peek at some Cargo Pods for space adventures. This might be my next set for the shop, since it's just two pages and I'm going to have a lot of fun coming up with color schemes and markings. These cargo pods are about 4.5" long and include 6 types of add-on modules, each with multiple mounting locations, so you can give each pod a unique appearance. Expect a few weathering layers too, since these sorts of things always seem to look best when they're covered in rust and grime.
Texturing in progress. This shows a very "busy" option, with most of the panelization, weathering and markings layers visible. This needs some more shading before it's finalized.
I'm currently working on the second page of this kit, which features all of the optional stick-on modules. I'm about halfway done with that page, so at this rate the Cargo Pods will be available from the shop around Wednesday.
Glad to hear it, dcbradshaw! There are a zillion paper "cargo container" sets available for modern settings, so they must be popular. I figured it'd be worthwhile to create the same sort of thing for futuristic settings. It's also sort of a companion kit to my Spaceport Tiles, which have been lonely. I'm planning to release some tiles (maybe as part of the Colony Barracks and Spaceport Tower I'm working on) that will also help to bridge the gap.

Vermin King: I had gotten down to less than 1/16 of a mile and not being able to stand for more than 4 minutes without crumbling to the ground, so getting better. Now, I just need to get my folks improving

Vermin King: My stressful 2023 started in March, 2020, and fortunately, progress is keeping up with the set-backs ... for the most part. I'm still upright and last Monday, I was able to stretch my after-breakfast walk to 3/4 of a mile.

Vermin King: ignatious was in the path of Idalia and hasn't been on since before landfall. I know things have got to be chaotic down there, but keep him in your thoughts and prayers

Vermin King: Well, I am back for now. I will be sitting in tomorrow while Dad has other things he has to do. I will remember to take something to work on

Vermin King: I should have at least brought a book. Waiting is something I am not good at. I need to be doing something

Vermin King: And now Mom is in ICU ...

Vermin King: should have brought those wheels with me...

Vermin King: Well, Mom has pneumonia in both lungs, so we are just sitting around waiting to hear what the doctors are going to do...

ignatious: So far looks like we're on the northwest side of it so that's good but Hermine and Michael are still fresh in the mind so I'd rather be ready. I lived on a sailboat as a kid so storm preparedness is kind of just in me.

Vermin King: ignatious, I almost called you last night to check on your progress. And to see if you were in the path. Stay safe
