    Hello everybody,
    i'm new to this group. I wanted to share a design i did some time ago of the LH2/LOX tank and boosters assembly for the Columbia Space Shuttle memorial model that was published by:
    Scale is around 1:200 (don't remember exactly).If someone is interested, please tell me how i can share the design. Files are quite big (three coloured pdf, hires 21 mb... sigh... couldn't find a better compromise between size and quality.. no instructions, sorry... but it's very easy to build)

    Attached Files:

    I look foward to seeing (and building) them.

    P.S.-If you need any extra space to host them, I could help.

    Are they pdf files with bitmaps in them? This can bloat the files enormously. Vector images (Illustrator, Coreldraw etc) give much smaller files, and scaleable images, which stay sharp at whatever enlargement; no pixelation.

    The design looks great by the way! It is very good of you to want to distribute them! Thanks indeed.

    That is a wonderful looking design, and I hope you know you are making many folks happy by making it available!
    Thanks for the time and effort it took to design and your generosity in making it available to all of us!

    Dear all, thanks for the appreciation about my model. jleslie helped me to decrease the size of the files down to 630kB :grin: and now the download is not a problem anymore. It will be available soon for free in his site . Stay tuned.

    Since it may be not that simple to build the model as i thought, we're now looking for some volunteers to lay down some simple sketches and a few helping words to attach instructions to the model. Any help is welcome.

    Hey put it out without instructions, I'm sure there are several "gifted" builders around here that would help out with the instructions.

    Nice job, by the way!
