... first the crawler, then the shuttle... what's next? The ISS? :-D
hey, thanks for the link about scratchbuiling paper ship railings!!! I also need one for a build that I'm doing! bounce7
WOWSIES! Great work I love these tiny builds
Thank You Hans and cgutzmer for Your kind comments.
About the Endeavour, I would like to build an entire stack with ET and SRBs, to celebrate when I saw it at the PAD39 for the STS-118, during my trip at the Cape.
It's a llllloooooong duration project. sign1
Just a diversion ....
This weekend I was looking for something that could point out the scale of the model of the crawler like a small human shape.
Finally I found it in the Niels A4V4 model, where You can find a small Werner von Braun that is looking at the missile. Thus I scaled down the WvB at 20% (1/96=x/480 -> x=480/96 -> x=5) and I cutted out my small figure of a man.
...But... The temptation was too strong, thus I build the Prototype of the A4V4 ...
Sorry but I am so weak ....
... but von Braun surely has looked at crawler in the Apollo days.
may be in the future I could consider a V-2 missile at 1:480 :mrgreen:
you're really sick sir... :-D
Do you have bionic eyes or something? bounce7
Wow.. this is awesome, at such a small scale! And those walkways..jawdrop
All the pieces are cut ' n ' glued and now I have to put all of them together ... :mrgreen:
wow...i would lose all hope after 1 truck at that scale...you truly have a lot of skill and patience!! i could really learn a thing or two from you great build!!!
Whatever you do - Don't sneeze !!!!
LOL don't sneeze Now that would be a disaster
Now that's a good advice... bounce7
Wow. What a build. Nice and clean, and very small.
Alfonso's work is in demand at the moment.
Thanks Mark for the hint, but I always put on my nose a clothes peg to prevent any problem sign1
In this weekend some progress: first I completed the trucks, than I assembled them on the crawler
Werner is looking at the crawler and he seems satisfied ... :mrgreen:
On my hand ...
... and now I have to complete all the walkways ... wall1
BTW I am very satisfied for the result till now
Best Nando :thumb:
This is a very very nice build. In this size it must be an incredibly hard job. Congratulation for the fantastic result so far. :inw::inw:
WOW you sir are one insane modeler!!! nice work...are you also gunna do a space shuttle lut to go with that? that would be absolutely amazing!!!:thumb:
Impossible, Nothing's Impossible! This great man has just presented the impossible, possible!
Wow wow hold it, you said LUT? Do you mean THE shuttle LUT?
Hans, as You can see at the first post of this tread, my intention is to build the Mike's LUT & Saturn V at 1/480.
Meanwhile, just for take a break in the build of the crawler, I tried to build, at same scale, the Endevour, that I saw at the KSC the last summer. May be in the future, I will build at least the MLP of the Shuttle and the STS-118 entire stack, may be in the future ... wall1 ... but now George and Mike are releasing their Historical Collection :curse: ....
