  1. Well, I started building this resin kit back in 2015; I managed to get the bulk of the kit together and painted. It was an easy enough build but before I could call it done I really wanted it in a diorama. In Return of the Jedi, the opening scene shows Darth Vaders Shuttle leaving the Imperial Star Destroyer and heading for the 2nd under construction Death Star. The diorama I wanted to create was the docking bay that Darth's shuttle arrives in. Now this was going to be a challenge, so the model sat on the shelf of doom until the end of last year. Modern LED lighting technology has now mad
  2. Launch Tower & Space Shuttle with Booster Rockets Revell 1:144 Following the demise of the Saturn/Apollo programme, which ended with the Apollo/Soyuz Test Program (ASTP) in 1975, NASA moved on to a new era in space flight; that of the Shuttle Programme. The intention was to design, build and launch a manned vehicle that could carry a crew and cargo payload into low earth orbit, deliver its cargo, and then return to earth, land like an aircraft, and be reusable for future launches. The requirements for the Shuttle were to be that, unlike the Saturn/Apollo system which progres
  3. STS-134 "The Final Endeavour" 1:72 Space Shuttle (Photo courtesy of NASA, available from: https://www.nasa.gov/centers/kennedy/shuttleoperations/posters.html) Good evening all! As of a month ago, I've had Revell's 1:72 Space Shuttle kit lying in the stash begging to be started. Now that I'm coming to the end of another build (a 1:48 twin-seat Eurofighter) I thought that it's about time to start on this project. -As you can probably tell, I've chosen the STS-134 mission as the basis for this build, for a multitude of reasons: firstly En
  4. This is a highly detailed resin kit that I picked up off eBay last summer, I didn't start building it until the end of last year. I hope to have it finished for the end of this year as I intend to put it into a small diorama. This little kit was challenging to add lighting due to the small confined spaces however I managed to cram all of the lights into the model. I could have done with a spare pair of hands to help glue the top and bottom hull together as it was a fiddle, however I managed to do it and a last little bit of putty and primer getting ready for the final base coat colour, then so
  5. Hi all, Just thought I'd upload a few pictures of the real space kits I've managed to complete since getting back into kit building. I'm sure everyone's seen them (and probably built them) many times but I enjoyed making them all. They are all mostly out the box with a few modifications here and there (for example I added plume deflectors on the Revell Lunar Module). The Revell kit was the first one I built after finding it on sale in Modelzone. I enjoyed building a Lunar Module so much I followed it with two more from Dragon Models straight away. Then while looking in the Airfix magazine I s
  6. Just got back from 2 week holiday to Florida, the highlight for me was the Kennedy Space Center. A new part of the center was opened in July which was the Shuttle Atlantis. All I can say is that it was amazing. Wish I took more photo's to be honest but here are the best ones from the day, anyone building the Revell or Airfix kit these might help. The lighting was not the best so I hope you all enjoy these. More to follow of the Saturn rocket. Dan
  7. Hey All This is my Revell 747SCA, in the last livery worn by the jumbo. Fun build, very odd one. The kit does show its age abit, but it was stillfun. It is the new release 747sca by revell, 1/144. Heres thew photos :-) Thanks for looking Bradley
  8. Hello, does anyone do tile decals for the Hasegawa space shuttle kit? Cheers, Andrew
  9. I thought I'd have a break from Harriers for a while and build a few models from my 1/144 collection. I also completed a build of the Space Shuttle for some friends. I did an Egg Plane for good measure, at the same time as the Eindecker build. Here's how they turned out ... The Dragon / Italeri 1/144th Intruder A-6E. Nice little kit, but the decals I had were completely knackered and many went on in little pieces. One for the dustbin of history perhaps ... Next up is the Airfix 1/144th Space Shuttle (yes I know it's in the wrong place as not an aircraft - well most of the time not, anyway)
  10. Ive had this since they were reissued. It came from Creative models in Cambridge. I tried getting one for a while. I built 2 of these in the past , one was standard Nasa the other was a Moonraker one with LED engines and cockpit , once built they are VERY impressive. This one is the latest reissue , but its still hard to get in the UK. The fit on the original issue fuel tank was a bit poor. The halves were warped and took alot of hard work to get them together straight. Luckily this latest issue doesnt seem to have the same problems. I got the halves together with mr cement liquid glue in abo
  11. The Vehicle (originally Vertical) Assembly Building, or VAB, at NASA's Kennedy Space Centre. It used to assemble American manned launch vehicles from 1968-2011. At 3,664,883 cubic meters, it is one of the largest buildings in the world by volume. The building is at Launch Complex 39. The VAB is the largest single-story building in the world, and is still the tallest building in the United States outside an urban area. The VAB, which was completed in 1966, was originally built to allow for the vertical assembly of the Saturn V rocket for the Apollo program. It was then used for housing Space
