  1. Thanks for the link. I'll reach out and see what happens. Have a great week!
  2. Thanks for the information. However, I'm looking for drawings for the other service structure that had the crew access arm. I think LVM Studios made one, but they seem to be defunct. I searched, but can't seem to find anything suitable, just a few photos here and there. Thanks, Troy
  3. Does anyone know where I could find some drawings of the LUT on launch complex 14? I recently purchased the "All Systems Go" Mercury Atlas kit and I though I might attempt a scratch build of the LUT to add to the detail. Thanks, Troy
  4. Thanks! I really appreciate the kind words. I wish I would have been able to get to the other side. There is a chance that we will have a different view when they rollback to the VAB sometime before the end of the year. The crawler was really impressive. We were less than 60 feet away as it passed by.
  5. Hello, Just in case anyone may be interested in reference photos of the new SLS Mobile Launcher, I have uploaded a gallery taken on Saturday, October 12 about 600 feet from the mobile launcher at Pad 39B during the wet flow test of the sound suppression water system. https://troymcclellanphotos.smugmug.com/SLS-Mobile-Launcher-Reference/ Here is a link of some video that I shot of the actual test and a closeup video of the rollout back in late June: https://vimeo.com/366082526 - Water Deluge Test https://vimeo.com/344872632 - Crawler w
  6. Manfred, Glad the images helped. I've thought about scratch building a small scale LC-41, but I have too many irons in the fire at the moment. I'm really enjoying watching the progress on your build, it's outstanding!! Have a great weekend, Troy
  7. Hello, I was out for remote camera setup yesterday for the Atlas V GPS 2-F11 launch and I had a moment to get a few shots showing the new launch tower that is being built at Pad 41 to support the Boeing CTS. I'll try to get some more detailed shots the next time I'm out. https://troymcclellanphotos.smugmug.com/Category/Atlas-V-GPS-2-F11 I hope this is useful, Troy
  8. Rob, Nice shots! The lighting inside the Atlantis exhibit does make photography challenging, but yours look great. I was fortunate enough to see the last 3 shuttle flights from the KSC Press Site. What an experience. In addition, I shot the final rollout's of Discovery and Atlantis from inside the VAB and pad tours the morning after rollout. I remember the empty feeling the VAB had as we walked out after Atlantis has cleared the doors for the last time. There were no more SRB segments and other parts to support a future launch in the various areas along the transfer aisle, but I did make so
  9. Are you going to apply for media credentials? If so, PM me and we can connect at the KSC Press Site.
  10. Thanks for the kind words. Hopefully I can get some more shots when the move it to the pad next week.
  11. Here are a few shots that I took on Friday in the United Launch Alliance Horizontal Integration Facility at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station during a media event. I'm not sure if anyone is building a Delta IV Heavy/Orion EFT-1 model, but I wanted to share some images that might help. I hope to have more shots when the move it to Complex 37 and then some pad shots during tower rollback before the launch. Enjoy, Troy
  12. Hotdog, Are the decal for the Revell 1/144, Airfix, or both? They look great by the way and I would be interested in a set. Do you have a time frame for release? Thanks, Troy
  13. Let me know if you are planning a trip and I can meet you over there if me schedule allows. I'm only a couple of hours away. Troy
  14. I'm heading over next month for the MUOS 2 Atlas V launch and I'm hoping to have time to go see what they have done with here. The last time I saw her was when she was moved from the VAB to the new building at the Visitor's Center that was still under construction. There were a few media events to see the new center over the last few weeks, but I have been up to my eyeballs with other projects and could not attend. I can't wait to see photos!
  15. Cool shots! I plan on being over there for the upcoming Delta 4 launch. If I have time I'll drive by and check out the progress. As cool as this display is going to be, I still wish they were flying!
