Thought i would have a go at enhancing the Control Room with a working display screen.
I managed to track down a little Digital Photo frame that has a screen size of 1.5 inches, (it was a key chain) called a Coby DP-151.You can get them from Amazon.
Uploaded a few photos to it I think it can hold about 50.
Here is a link to the Youtube Video of it working (not a brilliant movie but you’ll get the point!)
Here are some close up shots of some of the pictures
Been working on this for a while, its a companion kit to the Control room equipment model. Doors open and shut! The kit itself is designed to fit into the next release which will be the Green Dome building itself, so there will be external walls that will surround this model…..but for now this is the control room completed, all coloured parts with the exception of the front steps are already pre coloured. There is a basic printed image for the view screen, which is supplied but it is fairly easy to print off your own chosen image to fit the frame.
The Green Dome (Pantheon) …Our next release

For more details see the auctions.
Control console buttons yet to be added, and the phones are still being painted!
A nice chunky Globe chair and tulip chair in resin, Mdf control console, suitable for various scales and eras.
At last, number two has somewhere to chillax
Meanwhile on Skaro’s version of “Dragon’s Den” A cyberman tries to sell Davros the idea of a Globe chair for his dalek empire…………..
This computer console is by a company called figurebitz although i modifed it to include some screens made from pics printed onto some photopaper and some clear plastic. the kits are also available from crooked dice.
I decided to make the kit into a Rover Control Console for my village project, as a means to activate the Rover, guardian of the village.
Nice little kit goes together well but no instructions so i good idea to look at reference pics of the model to work out how it goes together. No doubt i shall be buying some more!
I have a few other models from the range which i will be posting as and when they are complete.
One of the visitors to this site, customer of my decal sheet….and clearly also a Crooked Dice customer too Ted Eckel, sent me the photos of his finished Prisoner themed diorama, cleverly utilizing the Moke Box. I was so impressed I thought I’d Pop it up on my blog to show you guys.
Ted, you have made a great job of that Rover looks good too in the background, Moke looks very cool it has to be said, and number six’s badge is very effective.
Thank you kindly for sending the Photos Ted.
I don’t normally give advance warning of other companies releases, but I was pretty pleased to see these two figures which are going to be out in March this year, according to the Crooked dice newsletter.
Both are suitable for populating the village!
I have been telling several prisoner fans about this in the last few days but they don’t get the newsletter so couldn’t see the picture….here it is.
Can’t wait to get my hands (and brushes) on these!
