    Thank you, Alfonso!
    As some may think that after all this time Alfonso has released a revised version, this is a very good step in advancing the ISS construction, and/or the shuttle wirth the payloads.
    We are talking about excelling and commitment.

    Well I have begun the revision of Harmony and haven't gotten far yet because I just got sidetracked by the thought of the idea of an interior in Node 3 with Cupola and a light so you have a bit of an inside view of the finished ISS.

    So I took one of my first builds of Harmony and started throwing together an interior.

    It isn't much but it does look like it could be a simple addition if someone would be willing to put it in a pdf and finalize the pieces.

    My simple makeshift inside is a couple circles that just fit inside the inner area of the cylinder (one with a hatch for the aft hatch) and the wall in between both of those. The walls measure 3cm length x 3cm height (in this case it is shortened because of the hatches on all four sides) The rails for the hatches should be simple as well.

    Like I said, just a simple build. Here are a couple pictures for clarification. Is anyone willing to make the shapes and put detail of the scientific and habitable racks on each wall and put it in a pdf at 1/100 scale so people could add an interior if they wish?.
    I dont have Adobe programs and I have no idea how I could even go about this project, but I know that there are people out there who have the tools and could throw it together quickly in no time. It would be greatly appreciated not only by myself but by others who would want to go that extra mile and put some 'guts' into Alfonso's wonderful ISS model.

    To all,

    It's final, KIBO and JEM Logistic Module will not be modified.
    It's not worth to make both modules a little wider and having the length the same. At the eye, it won't be much of a difference.
    I'll move on with P3-P4, S3-S4, P5, S5 and Russian segment.

    Here is a GREAT picture of the S3 from Sir Alfonso!!! He has some great ideas that you will find out about with due time. I think this S3/S4 will be some of his best work!!

    Node 3 or should I say "Tranquility" is scheduled to launch on December 10, 2009 and will house the Cupola module and "COLBERT" or Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill.
    I think they picked a great name especially for the reason of honoring Apollo 11.

    So chalk it up, we have 3 nodes with names now "Unity", "Harmony", and "Tranquility"
    It is no longer a mystery and I think because of this new naming, every module of the ISS in orbit or yet to launch has a name. (if I am wrong don't be too harsh and point it out. Just let me know.)

    Just as I thought... the name colbert will appear... hahahahahahaha!!! :-D

    Tranquility is a very nice name for Node 3... :-D

    Has anyone heard from Alfonso? I have sent him a couple emails the past week or so and have not gotten a response? I am not trying to ask about the models, just checking with him.

    Are they going to name the cupola?

    OT but is anyone else dying to see what his Hubble will look like? With STS-125 coming up I think the same Payload would do for the Hubble Launch and previous servicing missions...with the Updated Solar Panels etc...

    But Im sure thats a long way off...

    Well all I can say is the STS-125 will be one of a kind!

    I think it will remain Cupola instead of giving it a proper name. Who knows, it could very well be named something but I don't think that it will. If they were I am sure they would have named it at the same time as Node 3 since they are going together.
