Default Cryostasis Kit

Hi everyone,
Thought this project by now deserves its own thread.
So here it is again fora little recap, then we'll move onto the components.



These were the sides, but they got redesigned.

New Sides for Upper block


Back plate (front) The original design was a completely smooth back - No longer!

Back plate (back) - purely designed for added value. This side gets glued to the Upper block and won't be seen.

Bracket guide, 'the Plane' - Purely designed to help people guide the brackets onto the back plate. However it doesn't quite fit. You could use the lines on the backplate to guide the brackets instead of using the plane. I might redo a while new one.


Brackets - These little bastids also had to be redesigned.

Brackets - old & new comparison

Brackets attached (new)

The Hatch - another pita piece. However radical improvement on previous design.

Assembled backplate with hatch

Example of how backplate goes on Upper block - Resting on backplate

Here's the Upper block layed out

This is how the underside of the Upper block is arranged


Here's the Lower block layed out


This is how I was originally intending to do the Upper block for customers (2xsmall block, 1x plate). But I figured that would be hassle for people, so it become the one block you see now.

Here's the original which has now been drilled. It's going in for moulding yet again and yet another new block will emerge (but with a hole predilled)!


Crikey, hope that made sense! I need to count how many bits there are, but it's not bad for my first production kit!
I just hope folks don't have a hard time putting it together.
Woodles,

Yup
I've got a tube with dice - but I've discovered dice just float striaght down (absolutely no tumble). So maybe if a skull is inside with the dice, maybe it'll collide better (yet to try). Oh btw, liquid tends to magnify objects, you get the rounded bluging look, pretty cool!
This Mk2 version not only has been jazzed up and moulded several times, but hopefully the Hatch feature will also allow the tube to be swappable! It could become a brush stand lol.

Hi all,
Many thanks
This is how that alternative front bit goes in. Stick it at an angle (putty can help fill the void space).

Alignment issue with the plane piece. It fits, it's just that it's slightly sits left of center.

The tube end cap pieces need to be drilled out to allow tube to pass through.

Once both the end caps are in place, the rod holes need drilling. Drilling the upper block more will make it easier putting that section on top of all 4 rods easier.

Mark up 2 parallel lines on the front of the upper block. This needs cutting out (this is just to add some extra detail).

These are the 4 rods which have the nut clamp type things (orange bits) loosely on.

The following sequence shows how to get the rods in and then nut-clamp them in place. Just do the lower block only for the time being until the upper block is finished being assembled.

How to stick on the lower block's side bits.

This bit is where I found things didn't line up. Take the tube, turn it upsidedown and pass it through the bottom of the upper block. Then rest the hatch on top of it. Now lower the tube with the hatch back through the upper block whilst centering it between the brackets until the hatch sits on top of the upper block (as intended). Now if things were line up, you'd be able to dill through the bracket holes and into the hatch. In the pics, you'll see I've had to move the holes in the brackets to make it work.

The actual Tube itself. Inside this particular tube is a spine from Mantic Games and one of my skulls. The top has a handle so it can be pulled from the cryostasis stand.


Yeh, so a Mk3 is on the go. Lower block being jazzed and issues being addressed.

was wondering if you were gonna do a larger "bank" of the tanks? like three in a row, but with a combined base and top sections or maybe in a triangle/hexagon foot print, also you know what else goes with stasis tanks? examination tables. i do love this model.

Very cool as always Dusty.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
