Semi-automated Podtels blight the poorer regions of urban sprawl like concrete-and-metal mushrooms. Each room is unlocked by merely swiping a cash card and choosing from a menu, and there is no on-site staff or concierge. This makes Podtels appealing to a rather shady clientele ranging from those who are simply down on their luck to drug addicts, prostitutes, and criminals.
Out of the box, you can build a clean Podtel from the early days, or grunge it up into a seedy hot pillow or squatter complex with the following bonus items:
This set also includes automated GSD cutting files and illustrated instructions.
SwiftScenics allows gamers to quickly "Print, Build, Play!" a variety of simple exterior structures to fill large sections of their game table in a very short time. Structures in the SwiftScenics line are VERY quick to build and some even collapse flat for storage or can be permanently mounted for static builds.

The finished product looks real good. The model itself went together easy with enough of a fudge factor built in that minor goofs do not impact the final look. A nice addition for anyone who wants to add something extra to a near future scenario. BZ to everyone involved in the developement.

All I can do is reiterate what Jeremy said. Other than those words I feel this is a great addition to any SCI-FI landscape for a city and the ability to make it shorter or taller with optional signage gives more city skyline possibilities. Have built one with the standard setup but will start making shorter and taller centerpieces and a mix of rings with the various states of signs and pods them self.

This bad boy is HUGE! It is also a really quick build for its size. In case you're wondering just how big this thing really is, the standard 4 story version is 11.5" tall and the rings are roughly 9.5" across.
The variant signs and walls are really nice additions. And there is plenty of real estate on the blank walls, signs, and main entrance to add your own details.
If you want a taller or shorter Podtel, you don't need to break out a ruler and start designing your own kitbashes. There is a sheet of central pillar extensions to add to the regular center pillar (join inside with scrap card strips for a smooth, seamless joint), and a central pillar with score and cut lines already marked for making models with less than 4 floors.
The Podtel is worth every bit of the $6.50 I spent on it.
