Mods to 6987 - Blacktron(I) Message Intercept Base

Hey All looking for some ideas.

I just got this set yesterday from ebay, builtg it, looking for some possible ideas that some have done to modify.

One of the major things I don't seem to like the Mobile tower that is on the track does not connect at all anyway to the main base. Last night I mucked around with the positioning of the plates and turning some of the legs a different way so that I could move the entire tower and track so that it connects with the corridor to nowhere

Anyone else have any ideas?

1 other I was thinking was maybe trying to find 2x 2409 and put them on swing hinges at the front of the main super structure to clos up as well

Also thinking about some sort of other defensive tower?

    Search the webs for "Blacktron Intelligence Agency" and drool over those pictures. While the scale of this creation is obviously way larger than #6987, you might find a few ideas you like.

    One question though: the "mobile tower" DOES connect to the main corridor, at least in one position. Are you thinking about having a constant connection, or two different connections depending on the position of the tower? Just curious; this is one of my favorite base sets and I'm curious to see what you're planning.
