    Thanks for the link. There seems to be a growing number of CEV models out there. I was actually thinking of scratchbuilding one (why go the easy route?) but I was wondering -- Does anyone have a good idea yet what kind of material will be used to cover the CM? Will it be Kapton tape, ala the Apollo CM, or will it be some other color? And what about the SM? Silver, again ala the Apollo CM, or what?

    I sure would like to know.

    Then again, I may just need to hold to my vow not to model the darn thing until (or, more pessimistically, if) it flies....
