X20 DynaSoar 1/72nd AMP kit

The X20 DynaSoar was a USAF project from the late 1950s-early 60s to build a spaceplane capable of a variety of roles. In an effort to keep the programme, there was some NASA involvement, but it was cancelled in December 1963 to free up funds for the Manned Orbital Laboratory or MOL. This project was in fact a manned reconnaissance platform, and in turn was cancelled in June 1969 The AMP kit is nicely detailed, but not as straightforward as it looks to build. WIP is her






Thanks to bianfuxia for the idea and hosting the GB, and to Enzo for keeping order.

Well, I didn't get the ISS finished - that was probably a bit ambitious - but I did put in a last burst to get this one done.


The O'Neill Cylinder concept for a huge space settlement - basically a giant tube with three landscaped settlements inside, each separated by a huge window lying above each settlement. The whole things spins on its axis to create gravity and huge doors close at "night". A separate ring appears to contain farming facilities.




This was a neat kit I had sent from Japan. The brand is "Wave Corportation". Like many Bandai kits, it was entirely press fit. Didn't use a drop of glue. 







Not the same scale!

Titan IIIC

This is the Round2 rerelease of the MPC 1/100 Titan IIIC. The kit was originally released as a static model (here) and a flying model. It looks like Round 2 may have upgraded the decals.


Thank you so much to @bianfuxia amd @Bobby No Mac for hosting this GB. I have another addition to the space collection. 


Without further ado...







And the build log is

Here’s mine- completed on time but posted late:


1/72 Horizon Models Mercury-Redstone, built as MR3, the first manned flight, which sent Alan Shepard into space as the first American and second person to do so.
