Strangest Scratchbuild: The Spirometer Sci-Fi Pumping Station

  A question was asked today on The Miniatures Page regarding what was the strangest object you had ever used to scratchbuild a piece of scenery.  This got me thinking about my many projects over the years.  After some recollection, I landed on the 25mm Sci-Fi pumping/fueling station I made using an old Spirometer that many years ago I had come home from the hospital with, after a bad bout of pnemonia.
     A Spirometer is used to help exercise your breathing and help you to expand your lungs and maintain their normal function.   I mounted my old one on a foamcoare base, and added a small foamcore building, as well as other bits and bobs to help disguise it.
   It's been over a decade since I built this, and it is still one of the pieces I'm most pleased with.


  1. Thanks for this! I have one at home and have been trying (but failing) to come up with some way to use it. Blame it on my vacant imagination...

  2. Terrific use of old kit,inspiring indeed!
