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.
creyates: Happy new year everyone! Wishing you all a better 2023!

okumarts: I took a year 'off' of some sites and social media but also focused on other things. It really didn't seem to make a difference so my new years resolution is to re-engage and enjoy it more.

Vermin King: There evidently was a feasibility study about a decade ago about a water pipeline from the Great Lakes to the Southwest states. I believe that water would have been even more expensive than bottled water

Vermin King: At 7AM we were at +3, got up to 17. Far better than the last two days

Vermin King: Well, squirmydad, is it colder in KC than where you are? -5F here. We have already hit our high for the day at midnight

Vermin King: The smaller images on PostImage are in fact thumbnails. Click on the thumbnail and it opens a new tab with the full image. Right click on the full image and you can get the Copy Image Link on the drop down. Use that to post a full image

Dave: Hey there! I've used both. Posting off-site images results in broken images (I'm guessing because they aren't from a secure site, which is fine). Using the PostImage function, it reduces images to thumbnail size (regardless of what I ask for).

Vermin King: @dave, Are you uploading images with PostImage or linking to images elsewhere on the internet?
Dec 19, 2022 4:26:41 GMT -9
Dave: I'm trying to post images, but it seems I can only post broken images or teeny tiny images. Help?

Vermin King: gothique, did you look through what I posted on Facebook and in the message? Anyone else find anything to help?

Vermin King: Well, as one who has been contributing to the silence, I hope to do better this next year

Vermin King: Oo, gothique, that is a tall ask, which I wish wasn't. Finding almost anything beyond Taj Mahal is darn near impossible

gothique: Can anyone suggest any buildings for 18th/19th Century India? 28mm scale if possible

wyvern: I suspect you're not alone Hackbarth; the CWF here's been quieter than previously too in the last couple of years. Typing as one of those who's been among the quietest...
