So I had wanted to enter this in the "museum of curiosities" contest, but couldn't finish in time. I figured, I should probably just put the extra hour in, finish it, and post as a normal custom.
So this lab is inspired by the BSG Razor flashbacks as well as Blood & Chrome. During the first Cylon War, the Cylons started using human DNA and parts to try and create humanoid Cylons and Hybrids. This is a representation of what one of those labs would look like. The main table features a Hybrid, while there are numerous human and centurion parts "hanging" around.
Recipe- This was quite the hodge-podge. The walls are from a WWE ring, the table was an iphone box painted silver, the head tubes are pill bottles with extra caps painted silver, and the floor is cardboard painted and drawn on. The human and cylon parts in the background are from the BSG line to show that this is in scale. The hyrbid torso that is hanging is the torso of a cylon centurion, and I molded the flesh then painted. There are a lot of different metal pieces, wires, and "machinery" from my fodder box just to show some texture and realism. And for the main table, I used a Star Trek Borg figure- painted with flesh tones and some metallics to make it really look half human, half machine. The last thing I did was just added a few LED lights around for depth, and there you have it. Hope you all like :-)

Cool--good idea. I have a suggestion for you, if you're willing to take it on: why not try to reproduce the advertisement for season 4 of BSG, when all the characters were lined up as Da Vinci's Last Supper with 6 in the middle?

Great suggestion....I actually had the, displayed like that for a while.... Not sure if it would exactly count as a custom, but maybe when I do my Roslin I can display them in the last supper poses.
