Kometenmelodie is rich in fossil fuels.
(If you feel this is not exotic enough you can swap that for twoddlanium)
BPI are a growing presence on the planet especially in the Liao River Valley area.
However, not all fuel extraction is done by them.
Many smaller outfits are making their fortune in the selling of natural resources.
They use small but effective and easy to maintain drilling rigs as shown below.
It has ladders at the back and a groovy little control panel on the platform at the top.
The motor uses sci-fi bluelight spinny engine technology to power it.
Here is Drilling Station B5, which is owned by a small group of private individuals, the principal owner being a Mr Cosh.
However, the evil SWYS Corporation has doubled the price of the Drilling Rig and it is no longer possible to ship it to Kometenmelodie.
As such when the current stock is exhausted there will be no more.
Place your order now to avoid disappointment, there are only 6 left.

Oh! I’ve had this on my radar for quite some time, so I just ordered one – I guess it will work fine with 15mm…

Shapeways have made thin structures like this more expensive.
It is about double the price now…

Brigade have run into similar issues. Odd policy for SWYS to charge more for the gaps!

Mike, having looked at the Shapeways forum, you aren’t alone in suffering from their sudden change in pricing calculations.
However in this case I think there may be a relatively easy way to release a replacement. Would need a bit of a minor redesign, but it looks a perfect subject for doing as a brass etch. Happy to give you a hand with the conversion if you want. Andrew

Oooooh drop me an e-mail please!

Ooh, I assumed this was brass etch when I first saw it. So I guess I’d agree it would work well in brass

Got mine yesterday – thanks Michael!

No worries James, thanks for the order.
