Interplanetary Survey Vehicle "Sky Princess"

Recommended Posts

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

Thanks everyone for having a look at the images and commenting!  Moebius Models describes this kit as being 1/144 scale which seems to agree with the crew figures recruited from my spares inventory.
