Might be yet another use for the pod racer model. I saw a 'crashed' ship
wargame terrain at GenCon several years ago that used the movie Jupiter
as main hull, and pod racer engines as detached debris.

Now that I've a kit in hand, the four longitudinal engine sections for
engine might just be sliced and spliced to do the same thing. I suppose
similar textured 'cone' could work better, but I can't think of any.

Other hand, if you go for the 'flat planes', then things like chopped
Robotix parts glued to stepped tubes could work. I've found cheap
sets in thrift stores and garage sales so I'm always trying to think of
