Beginnings of world-building for FSNS

"Four Stars, No Stripes" is the very first story that got a 3D model of its main building. Of course, the base complex plays a crucial role and one of the pitfalls of writing without an actual model or plan to look at is that you see things to be much more convoluted than it is. So, being serious about my approach, I drew out the floor plan in my FSNS Plan Book (aka a sketchbook dedicated solely to FSNS):

Then, after getting to this level of detail, I proceeded to use Google Sketchup 7 to create the model of the main level:

I'll be in the process of creating the upper level and basement sub-level over the next few days. The final model should be the entire base on one file, complete and exact.
