  1. 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
  2. This build is complete and can be seen here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235060208-atomic-city-pan-am-space-clipper-orion/ Following are images and details of the build construction. Described by Scott Alexander of Atomic City Models as being studio scale and 42 inches in length, the kit is approximately 1/48 in scale and actually builds out at 44 inches. Most of the parts were well cast resin with few flaws. Exceptions being - the top engine area which was infested with countless pin holes from air bubbles, poorly cast passenger window detail, and large gaps where the forward inside edge of the wing and fuselage join. There is room to scratch build a cockpit and cabin, but not in 1/48 scale - something smaller, maybe 1/60 or so. I decided not to do an interior, but did add lighting. No instructions are included, but construction is straight forward. No provision for landing gear or a display stand is included. The kit does include 2 sets of excellent decals. This is a large, heavy, and impressive model which displays well with a display stand and some LED lighting. Many thanks for having a look, questions and comments are always welcome. Cheers, Bill
