    Decided that I'm going to invest in a good few Mechanical Chain bases for a nice big diorama on my shelf. And after seeing the old iGear Ark diorama here I can't help but want a few additional details/consoles/benches etc to add to what I'm whipping together. Unfortunately, the iGear display sells for about a grand on eBay, so that's a pass.

    Does anyone have any suggestions about other deluxe/voyager sized computers or TF-styled extras out there?

    If you're willing to deal with it being paper, I point you in this direction. I believe it was created by a member of these boards:

    Index of /projects/ark

    Here you will find a build-it-yourself Teletraan-1 and templates for backgrounds. You'll need to reinforce it yourself.

    Also, there are some floss containers that are hexagonal that with a little work could pass as a work terminal.

    I'm kind of making my own background tech fluff from cardboard and a broken printer.

    Disposable razors huh? You use the blades/head for tech, or the handle for pipes and such? I hadn't even considered those.
