Scotty! I need more Power!

Aye Captain, I'm givin ya all the power she's got! Okay so I was tinkering around in the plumbing department at My local hardware store,when I came across all of these plumbing parts.

1 inch PVC parts.

1/2 inch PVC parts.

I then noticed if they were laid out in a certain combination of  parts they look like Spaceship engines. then it came to me that these would be great for the engines.

These I think would work great for smaller ships.

1/2 inch PVC Parts with 1 steel pipe nipple.

1/2 inch PVC Parts with 1 steel pipe nipple.

Now for some of the larger parts I had to use a cut off section of  1 inch PVC pipe in order to connect them together.

These I thought would work for a larger ship. You can make two versions using all the same parts just in a different order.

Version 1 using 1 inch PVC parts.

Version 2 using 1 inch PVC parts.

Together I think they all would work for added debris around spaceports as scrap metal or as cargo waiting for transportation.

My idea of a larger engine room. Or just scattered remains of a crashed ship of sorts.

So I will need to add bobs and bits to dress them up but over all I really think they will turn out great.

So I hope this will help all you Sci-fi gamers and I think that they would do well with 28 mm miniatures as well


  1. Your imagination is working in high gear!

  2. Wish sometimes my wallet could run in high gear ha ha hah. I could then really run wild with my imagination.
    Thanks my friend.

  3. Inspired - I must get down to the plumbing supplies place!
