Space Mountain WDW 1975 Recreation
« on: February 06, 2020, 08:36 AM »
Hi, folks. Figured I'd post something I've been working on. I've been attempting a recreation of Space Mountain in Orlando and making it look the way it did in 1975, complete with it's original 'Home of Future Living' post-show. It's far from complete but here's a little look at what's been done so far.

I'm having a bit of a problem with ceilings. Right now, it's Moby's Curved Floors but it doesn't really fit very well. In the picture below, you can see I used a bit of DasMatze's Office as a test but I'm not really a fan of it. I don't think it's enough like the real thing and also, I can't find any diagonal station pieces. If anyone can find any of those things, please let me know.

And of top that, I couldn't find any diagonal ones either. Or at least not any that slope or line up properly. I couldn't find any pieces that resembled the real passageway before the green screen room. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, folks!

P.S. If the photos aren't working, let me know and I'll try to fix them. I haven't figured how to display photos in the threads.

P.P.S If anyone has any ideas for custom scenery to use, let me know as well.

P.P.P.S (That's a lot of P's) This is my first topic so please be nice!  ;)

I love the photos and what you are doing. As far as the ceiling, from what I saw on Google, I would use a white ceiling. Mobys is just fine for the white texture.

It does work actually. Thanks! The only problem is it needs to be able to slant on a slope and when I tried it, it didn't work. Having it steady and putting in walls to connect it is fine but it wouldn't line up with Moby's. Thanks again.  :)

That's good. Atleast you got something moving. I hope you figure something out! Can't wait to see more photos!

This is pretty cool. Having links to photos is fine, I understand that the sharing codes might be a little difficult at first. Overall, I am liking this. I definitely need some Space Mountain inspiration, so this is definitely a sign I need to start working on mine.

Thank you so much to everyone who's commented. I do think the white ceiling fits a lot better with the 'Home of Future Living' post-show.

I'm also glad to say that I fixed the 'hole in the roof' problem and I've just completed the green-screen room. I'm very proud of how it looks.

P.S. Thank you, cody, for commenting. You're an inspiration for me and I've always followed your park recreations. Thanks again!

Well, things are all coming together nicely. All paths are now connected inside and outside the dome and I'm beginning to build around them. The Star Tunnel is all ready.

I've always loved those windows.

But there is one major problem I might need help with. The picture speaks for itself.

https://imgur.com/nRcUVjl

I have been going around the building attempting to bring it to its blank 1975 look, rather than its 1994 'New Tomorrowland' look and while that's fine, the set I'm using has a huge hole in the building where the arcade should be. Covering it up may work but there's still the fact that the exit sticks out like a sore thumb, whereas at the time, it was directly next to the entrance. I could've moved it but here's why:

...and if I moved either of them, it would then get in the way of something else and everything would go haywire. >:( It's very complicated, so if anyone has any ideas on how to hide the exit more, and/or what set to use, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
