BeetleLab_06The "DON'T TOUCH" lever
Here's the "DON'T TOUCH" lever at the end of the room. It opens the big doors to the secret bay where Dr. Beetle kept the hidden Hive Engine.
BeetleLab_05Tool desk and dial board
On the side of the room is a wheeled tool desk and a large box with tons of gauges on it. The wrench on the left is the one Gil uses to deflect (and return) Dr. Beetle's bomb. I'm not sure if this is the same desk we saw back in the opening page, but I modeled two of them, just in case.
BeetleLab_04Dr. Beetle's lab, bookcase and desk
There's cool little set of drawers in the desk at the end of the lab, right under the balcony. Also, some neat jars on the book shelf that are hard to see.
BeetleLab_02Dr. Beetle's lab, looking toward the balcony
This is a view of the lab looking toward the balcony. Some slight value correction and bloom was done in the Gimp, but otherwise this is exactly as modeled.
BeetleLab_03Dr. Beetle's lab, looking toward the Hive Engine room
Here we see the back of the Dihoxulator, with some artistic license taken on my part to fill it out where we never see in the comic. In the background you can see the doors that open to the secret room where Dr. Beetle was storing his unearthed Hive Engine.
