No. I NEED these. I had no idea how badly until you got those tiny ships to go with it.

.....yes. I plan to make a small box out of clear plexi that I can slide into the opening, and print slides of images of the inside of the spacedock that I'll adhere to the outside of the plexi. The box will slide into the opening, be illuminated from behind by the ambient lighting inside (for the window lighting) and then I'll re-install the doors in a very slightly closed position to hide the edges of the plexi box. That way I get a shadowbox effect that gives me a nice forced-perspective look "inside" the spacedock.

Of course, all this may change the second I start cutting plastic. Life's funny that way.

I'm not starting this until the Superior and the Belknap are finished, however, so this is a project for a few months from now. And I already know this on is going to be an endurance test. Between finishing the surfaced from the printing, drilling all the windows, and masking for paneling, it's going to be a pretty big project. Almost Bill Krause sized, and I ain't no Bill Krause. Thankfully I know someone with a cricut machine who can cut masking templates from acetate, so that will make things go easier.
