Spaceport Containers

Forgotten and forsaken, the colony of Babylon sits at the edge of explored territory, a lonely outpost facing the unknown...

This 28mm scale card models kit contains all of the printable files and step-by-step assembly instructions you need to create a sprawling futuristic colony with towers, stairways and elevated walkways. Transform your tabletop with just a few affordable supplies and some spare time. Are they sturdy? Yes! You can safely use most ordinary metal miniatures on cardstock terrain made from cover-weight paper.

Here's a look at the instructions booklet: Babylon Instructions

Modular Kit

Your models can be arranged in lots of different ways on your tabletop. Place them next to each other to form separate rooms in a large complex, and stack them on each other to create towers and balconies. Add stairways, walkways, rooftop transmitters, and ladders wherever you like. All of these components can be rearranged from one battle to the next.

Accessible Interiors

All of the building levels have lift-off roofs and textured interior areas so you can move the action indoors.

Easy to Build

Each part of this kit is easy to build, requiring just a few ordinary craft supplies. No paper modeling experience is necessary! The instructions booklet tells you everything you need to know, and will point you to even more resources. You will need heavy 110# US letter-size or 199gsm A4 cardstock sheets to print on, hobby knife, scissors, metal ruler, cutting mat, white paper glue, poster putty, and some mat boards or other mounting boards.

To see how fun and easy it is to create paper models, try out the free Hovel or Cargo Pods kits from Dave Graffam Models.

Optional Details

The PDF files in this kit include optional graphics layers that you can control with the click of your mouse before you print, giving you control of window and door positions and other details. You can print many versions of the same component, all with a distinct look.

Does this set offer anything the Construction Yellow set does not have? Other than being blue?
Does this mean if I want different colors, I have to pay $15 each time?
It would have been handy to know what colors are going to be available, before I bought that first set.

Hi Cameron, thanks for ordering.

"Does this set offer anything the Construction Yellow set does not have? Other than being blue?"

They're both complete kits, but in different colors. This kit just screams to be released in lots of different variations, but it turns out that the only practical way to do it is one style at a time, because each style takes about 400Mb in files and about two weeks of seat time.

"Does this mean if I want different colors, I have to pay $15 each time?"

Yes it does, so collectors beware! But keep a look out for special offers and discount bundles that might come along later.

"It would have been handy to know what colors are going to be available, before I bought that first set."

Honestly I haven't planned out which other color schemes I'll be offering, or how many different schemes, or when they'll be available. You might assume that I'm sitting on a bunch of versions that are...See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
