That's a cool little pad/diorama. What is the base (not the plank) from?

You should make a new one like that and do it as a 50's retro/futuristic space port!

Yes, that is a curious object. What is that black dome thingy? A part from an adjustable vent?

I believe the black base for the launch pad was from one of the smaller Star Wars starter sets Estes made in the late 1990s.

PS: No message from bacasino was deleted. The darn reply merged my answer and one of his previous posts still on the board.

Judging by the first few pics, it's a dairy cow milking carousel who's owner loves John Deere green (too bright for Oliver green).
