    OK let me say that even though this takes forever I'm really starting to enjoy this. I still have no clue as to what I'm doing but that's half of the fun right? My first model is of the Space-X Dragon (capsule) and aft this is complete I'll move onto the Falcon-9 with Dragon payload model. I'm having a blast doing this (beats sitting in from of my PC playing games all night)


    OK I finished the model. I must say that I'm pleased for a first timer. I learned some things with this one and will have that in the old memory bank now. The cool thing about this model is I will save it and add it to the space station model when I start on it later this year. (Need to make a few/lots more models first)



    Docking mechanism... (was a pain in the butt)

    For not having a clue as to what you are doing, it looks like you are doing a GREAT job at it.
    What you have there looks really good. You are off to a really good start.
    The best advice that I can give you, is take your time, enjoy yourself, and have fun.

    Best of luck with this build. I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

    Excellent job!! Space X is the one to beat on the next manned capsules. I believe they will start next year testing their manned capsules. Your model is right with the times! :)

    Really!!... looks great for a first model. And it seems that is not that much of a beginners model and you are doing it just fine. Nice work... Before you know it, youl'll be doing the 7 foot long ISS... hehehe

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks. I'm working on the ISS 1:100 scale now. I have 3 sections complete (I'm not doing it in "order" of the real ISS as I'm not wanting to move and change things from the initial assembly)

    funny, i think a lot of us have no clue of what we doing when we doing things. if only i'll get a dime every time i have no clue of what i'm doing, i think i will be living more then really well right now. and i think your model looking nice by the way.
