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.

This model, like the HL300, is a joy to assemble. It breaks down to making 4 identical boxes and a larger central box. There are 2 reverse scores to take care of, but the rest of the model is as straight forward as you could want.
The color selection is awesome, and the kitbash PSD is an awesome bonus. There's another surprise in the package for this model, but I'm not going to spoil it for you.
If you need models for a near future or sci-fi setting, you NEED the Brio, the HL300, and the Interceptor.
