Greetings! Based on a Krafft Ehricke design for the Convair Manned Nuclear Interplanetary Vehicle from the 1950's, I used the recent Moebius Models Convair NEV as the basis for this build. Not a reissue of the 1957 Strombecker kit, the new tool Moebius Convair NEV is well designed with good parts fit and recessed panel line details. I modified the kit to include a steel rod for the spine, LED lighting, crew figures, a clear frontal dome, and re-purposed custom decals including the "Sky Princess" name and emblem. Batteries and switch for the lighting are mounted in the kit display base with the wiring running through a channel cut into the stand. Photographs were taken with a black felt background in low light with polished geode spheres to represent planets. Many thanks for having a look, questions and comments always welcome. Cheers, Bill
