Thanks Fumbles, there will be a lot of first's for me, a complete scratch build, a large sculpted figure, and connecting a sound board to the plasma disc lol.

Hi all you Spring builders  ;D

I would like to categorise my Borg themed build as a scratch build. However, there is one item which was purchased specifically for its purpose. I have a mini plasma disc which as you all know would sit at the top of the alcove.

Since the scratch build category requires the build to be 100% scratch built, I don't know if the build would qualify.

The build will consist of:-

The Borg alcove
The Drone
A gangway/walkway
Supporting walls

If Boyd/Chris could invoke a ruling on this matter, I would appreciate it

Hi 3rd its going to be roughly 1/6th scale. This is based on the plasma disc being 2.75 inches diameter, which I will reduce to to 2 inches. After research, the size of the drone's head needs to be just over the inch. Based on a ratio of 8:1 the figure will be approx 9 inches tall. The alcove will sit at 12 inches from base to hood. This will sit on a gangway, another 1/2 inch depth. The supporting walls will stretch a further 6 inches either side of the alcove, which should make the total width of 16 inches. I will start the blueprints at sometime this week

Ok, Bill I am really looking forward to seeing this given that it is the BORG and pretty much a total scratch build!!!   I must admit, I love the idea and I am envious.  Creating a Borg alcove sounds like such fun!  I am looking forward to seeing more.  Way to go!

Hi all,

Nice to see so many starts to some fantastic builds for the Comp!

Here we are, starting with the blueprint stage. This is a front view of the basic alcove shape



And a side view...




I sketched a figure 9 inches high and inserted him to see how it all fits





I am pleased with the basic outline and will start the alcove skeleton soon

Thanks for looking
Bill
