This was a relatively quick build for a game idea that one of my gaming friends had. We play a lot of VSF (mainly on Mars) and he thought it would be a good idea to have an airfield with some of my Japanese neffs moored up for him to attack... Sounded like a plan and I thought having a small mooring post would be a good idea.
It's a simple build using various images from the internet for inspiration. The main elements are shown below and these consist mainly of laser cut acrylic but with some brass rod and a 3d printed roof (because I didn't really have the time to make a proper one).
All the bits went together fairly well with just some minor tweaking for a good fit. Here are some almost complete shots of it.
And now for the completed pictures. Plain background for now but it took part in a game and I'll show those at a later date. The roof was sprayed a copper colour and a patina wash was added, the rest was my standard Mars paint job; greys and whites inked down, drybrushed up again and then given a subtle treatment of rust. In hindsight I should've put some sort of handrail for the stairs and mounted the whole thing on a solid base (concrete).
I need to build some stairs and platforms for neff access but didn't have time for this particular game. Maybe next time :-)
