  1. Nothing new but I finally got around to re-instating the images after the Photobucket issues and that has instilled some impetus for continuing with the build. Hi all, I’ve been a member on here for some time without contributing anything of note worthy, but hopefully soaking up some of the great skills and generous advice that are regularly on show. So, I thought it was about time I stopped sponging, put myself in the firing line and have a go at a WIP, so wish me luck! The build is going to be the Revell 1/144 scale Space Shuttle Discovery and Boosters.
  2. Here are some shots from my 2013 visit to the LA Science Museum. A few more here if you're interested: http://www.hanger51.org/aircraft-museums/us-museums-collections/la-science-museum-2013/ A-12 Blackbird by tony_inkster, on Flickr Douglas DC-8 by tony_inkster, on Flickr Lockheeds finest by tony_inkster, on Flickr Northrop F-20 Tigershark by tony_inkster, on Flickr F-104 Starfighter by tony_inkster, on Flickr Shuttle Endeavour by tony_inkster, on Flickr Shuttle Endeavour by tony_inkster, on Flickr
  3. Hi everyone My son Dylan's (aged 9) latest build is the Revell Space Shuttle for a school project on space. The first night of the build, using our traditional kitchen table technique, saw good progress on the shuttle The following night I had to work late, so when I got in and Dylan met me at the front door telling me he had carried on without me I feared the worse. However I'm delighted to say my fears were unfounded, in fact I think he made better progress without me ! As you can see still lots to do but the project has to be finished next week, so it looks like a busy weekend
  4. Hello everyone, Haven't posted anything in a while, due to 'technical difficulties' , but here's my latest completion, it's a but rough in a few places and the Shuttle was being a pain because it wouldn't stick to the 747, but I got there eventually. Thanks for looking, Ryan
  5. I have a 1/72 revell space shuttle model. There are two things i was wanting to get ideas for. The first is the best or most realistic way to make my shuttle look weathered. I have hand painted most of the detail and would like to try and stay away from decals because of this. The second thing is the cargo bay. I would like to add some type of material to it that will make it look like the real padding that is in the cargo bay. Thanks for any hints tips, or suggestions you may be willing to pass my way!
  6. Space Shuttle - Main Engine, pics thanks to Mike Costello.
  7. Space Shuttle - External Tank and Solid Rocket Boosters. The External tank was the largest part of the Space Shuttle Stack. It was manufactured By Lockheed Martin (previously Martin Marietta). It went through three major stages of development from Standard weight tank to lightweight tank, and finally the super lightweight tank. The orange colour was down to the spray on foam insulation. The Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB's) The prime contractor for the motor segments of the SRBs and the manufacturer of the vital solid fuel rocket segments was the Thiokol Corporation.The prime contractor for all
  8. Hi, I am new to modelling and this is my first build using any form of modelling kit. I acquired all the paints and materials and set to work. The little time I had after work was spent making this model. I know that certain elements of it are not correct, such as the ribbed external tank, size of the mobile launch platform, the tail service masts etc. I do not have the modelling experience of technical ability to scratch-build also. (I understand that Airfix produce the same scale stack with correct external tank and shuttle shape etc..) and I tried my best with mixing the colours for the ext
  9. Hi, I am interested in obtaining the Cutting Edge 1/144 Space Shuttle Tile Decals, unfortunately they appear rare as hen's teeth. I understand that these are out of production since Modelworks are no longer trading. I have been on a popular online auction site to no avail; the 'Warbird' tile decals are however available, but I would rather procure the Cutting Edge decals if possible? I have written to Keith McNeill with no response via his website too. The Ed Bisconti Orbitor Decal Sets appears to have dried up also for one reason or another. I would like some advice if there are any other
  10. OV-104 Space Shuttle Atlantis, now on display at The John F Kennedy space Center, Florida. Pics thanks to Mike Costello.
  11. Hi all, Don't suppose anybody has seen some of the warbirds 1/72 tile decals for sale have you? I've got their tile codes (which are the numbers for the tiles) but I need the actual tile decals as I intend to sand off the base tiles and apply a decal set. Secondly, the exterior fuel tank is textured, in filling and sanding the texture is removed, any ideas on a way of creating the same texture or what textured spray I could use? Thanks
  12. Hi all together, I've seen great Real Space Modeling projects in your forum. Therefore I want to point out you on my major project. I decided for the STS-6-Mission with the Challenger (04.04.1983) as guidance version for my build, as you can see here in the following image of the Launch Pad 39A with the Challenger before the start to the STS-6 mission. Source: retrospaceimages.com To be built is the Launch Pad 39A with Launch tower, Shuttle stack, as well as Mobile launcher platform (MLP) and Crawler transporter (CT). Basic module for my project is the old Revell kit 4911 in 1:144. In a
