I’ve started construction of the tower base now. It’s a 10mm scale model and this is the first time I’ve attempted anything that small before, so it’s going to be an interesting challenge. A friend of mine suggested it’s best not to try not to add too much detail, so I’ll keep that in mind as I progress with this.
The piece I’ve made is the circular base at the bottom of each tower. It has a spiral track cut into it that is intended to show how the building will retract into the ground. I tried to make the track as smooth as possible so it may actually be possible to fit some lugs into the base and get it to rotate up and down – I’m sure someone will try!
I don’t know how well these photos illustrate what I am trying to achieve, but it’s still early days yet. The figures standing next to the model are from Eureka’s 10mm fantasy range. Apologies for the over exposed images:
