Greetings! Recently completed, this is the Atomic City Orion Space Clipper resin kit. For me, this is the most beautiful of the vehicles from 2001: A Space Odyssey. From tip of nose to the end of the rear stingers, the model is 44 inches long (not 42 inches). Being large and heavy, a sturdy display stand is essential to prevent tipping and damage, so I made one from a pre-cast concrete paver - it will never tip! External battery powered LED lights for the cockpit and passenger cabin were added but I did not do an interior. The wing is secured into position from the bottom with 6 small screws to allow access to the interior and lighting. The kit decals are very nice, but the Pan Am logo blue seems a bit too dark? Details about the construction will be posted soon along with more images of the completed model. In the meantime I wanted to share these first images of the finished kit . . . . Thanks for having a look, questions and comments are always welcome. Cheers, Bill
