    working on the helm stations. thanks to mwwestphd for some ideas on building these from scratch. i experimented and went with foam board for the chairs and base instead of mdf. pine for the terminal and old clamshell casing for the actual computer. still have to finish painting and add the computer decals i printed up

    So the arms, did you just work them back and forth until they popped off, wedge them with a small blade? I don't want to damage the remaining plastic on the chair too much.

    i used a small screw driver to pry them off, using leverage, not sticking it into the plastic

    foam board does not cut as cleanly as I would prefer but it works well enough for display purposes

    Great looking diorama! It is really coming together nicely.

    It used to be unsatisfying cutting foamcore. Regardless of how sharp my blade was the foamcore usually ended up with a ragged interior. My problem was that I held the blade too high. Now I cut it with a longer blade and use as much of the blade as possible, lowering the blade so that it is almost horizontal.

    I look forward to seeing this project progress.
