3D Space Hulk Board - The Library

Posted by Nedius on July 11, 2010 at 2:30 PM

Hello once again!

It's coming to the end of term, and as a teacher I've found myself very busy with little in the way of modeling time! However, to prove that this is still an on-going project, here's some of my latest work!

This has been a LONG process. I need too many books for the shelves for bitz websites to have enough, so I've been making them using thin plasticard. It takes a suprisingly long time to make 10-12 (which is what I tend to make as a batch), and it takes 17-24 to fill a shelf. And there are 9 shelves, 32 cubby holes, and so on.

So, a long haul piece of work. However, the room itself is finished, so can be painted, and each self glued in place as and when I finish one! It will be a few weeks before I can get shots of this (end of term, wedding and honeymoon will sort of fill that time...), but hopefully they'll come soon enough.

More pics available in my 3D Space Hulk Gallery.

Hi,
I realise this post of yours is a few months old, but I have to say I'm extremely impressed, especially with the library. I'm going to be using some of those ideas to a ruined Archivum I plan to to make.
WRT the books, I've bought myself some of these: http://www.thomarillion.de/index.php?seite=katalog&modell=bits_ma

instead of making them. They're a perfect size. I thought you might like to know of them if you don't already.

Cheers,
Andy

Another suggestion could be - do you need to make every book completely?
I was thinking if you could cut round plastic tube in half and glue them side to side it would appear like a row of books? You could then just maybe add some small strips at various places to make them appear bound differently? Just a suggestion.
