  1. Here are comparison images of the white resin kit seat and the translucent Shapeways seat. Kit seat side view: Shapeways seat side view: Kit seat top view: Shapeways seat top view: It does appear that the Shapeways seat is supposed to be 1/35, since the length fits into the cabin, and the cosmonaut looks like he'll fit into the kit's seat. I think it's just a case of the Shapeways designer using outdated information for the size and details of the seat. Peter
  2. I went ahead and ordered the Shapeways ejection seat, but unfortunately it's a fail. The entire seat is a much larger diameter than the kit's seat. It's so large that it won't fit through the hatch opening. Looking at it, it's apparent that the designer used Reheat Models' 120mm kit as a reference, which was made before there were reliable Vostok references, so it only bears a passing resemblance to the real seat. (I wanted to attach photos, but I'm only allowed a total of 100kb of photos per post, so that's useless.) The Shapeways seat is offered in 1/24 scale also, wh
  3. Roger, you need to post this in the Buy and Sell forum. Peter
  4. Yes, I thought about cutting the seat off, but I just can't bring myself to spend $38 plus shipping for just the figure. I can always add him later if I change my mind. There's one other guy from the (former Yahoo) groups.io Space Modelers Group who is building it also. I've only started removing pieces from their pour stubs and test fitting, but so far I'm very pleased with the fit of the sharik quadrants and the fit of the interior shell into the sharik. The interior needed some thinning on the foot end to fit properly, but nothing out of the ordinary. The quality of the casting
  5. I'm just starting the Vostok with interior, and I'd like to show Gagarin in the capsule. Shapeways has a 1/35 Gagarin with ejection seat: Yuri Gagarin Vostok Ejection Seat Has anyone used this seat in the Red Iron Vostok? I'd hate to buy it and find out it doesn't fit properly. I tried contacting the designer via Shapeways several months ago to see if he makes just the Gagarin figure, but he did not respond. Thanks! Peter
  6. I'm looking for this kit: Hasegawa #02074 1/72 Boeing CV-22B Osprey "U.S. Air Force" The only difference between this kit and all the other Hasegawa Ospreys is Sprue J and the decals. If anyone has just that sprue or decals, that would be great too. I also have a USMC Osprey that I can trade, Hasegawa kit E41. Thanks! Please reply to peterogm at gmail dot com . Peter
  7. I'm looking for any of the Hobbycraft P-59 kits, either the YP-59 #HC1438, P-59A #HC1439 or P-59B #HC1414. I'd also like to get either the True Details or Cutting Edge cockpit, and the True Details wheels. Please contact me at peterogm [at] gmail [dot] com Thanks! Peter

  9. SOLD 1/48 Wings Atlas-D - $120 1/48 Wings Gemini-Titan II - $120 The Atlas-D includes both the ICBM warhead and the Mercury capsule adapter for the Mercury Atlas booster. Both kits are complete.

Buyer pays shipping - 3 lbs each from 03867. Thanks for looking!
  10. Chris, It looks like I can only upload 100Kb of photos to each reply, which is why the box photo is so small. Here's a link to a Photobucket album with large photos of the parts: Accurate Models 1/20 Saturn V F1 Engine kit parts Please let me know if this doesn't work. Peter
