Well, better days manifested themselves in the form of my 3D printer which increasingly has been a life saver for unusual objects as
demonstrated by my recent diorama “THEM! - In The Nest”. Click this link to get an idea about what I am talking about: https://www.oneeffgeof.com/448359632 .
I found two nice 3D recipes for telepods on the Thingaverse and CGTrader sites. The better of the two was nicely detailed and included both versions of Seth Brundle
(man & half human fly), Veronica (played by Gena Davis) and another included the computer console for the machines. Neither were exactly like those seen in the film but they both were close enough for my needs.
The lab scene I wanted to create would be near the conclusion of the film where Seth (about 7/8 of the way through his horrific transformation) explains his plan
off transmuting himself with the pregnant Veronica so they would be “the ultimate family”. To do this would require three telepods.
Two of the telepods needed for this scene were the more detailed versions I intended to print which took roughly 36 hours to print for each pod. The less detailed version took a bit over a day.
The factory brick wall in the rear was made by using a handy computer program I have called 'Model Builder' by Evan Designs. With it, one can printout brick sheets
or customized wall treatments with windows, doors or whatever you like. The program comes with many architectural features like cornices, wood trim and so on. You can even import your own photos of objects to use in any size you choose.
