  1. If you live close to or are visiting Jacksonville, Florida anytime soon, you can go see it in person and walk around it. https://www.abandonedfl.com/space-shuttle-external-fuel-tank/
  2. Looks like the issue with the LM descent stage being too small may be fixed in this scale?
  3. FYI Photo showing the "hook" on early Discovery... https://ibb.co/BG5RBHD
  4. Looking great, Jetplane! That "hook" you see was present on earlier versions of Discovery. My intention was to include it, and give modelers the option to snip it off if they planned to depict the latter version. Better to have it, than to have not. Can't wait to see your finished product!
  5. You might start with the David Weeks drawings available from the Realspace Models website. Also look online for the Mercury Familiarization Manual and Mercury Maintenance Manual.
  6. I'm just happy to see the struts below the fins, accurate stringer patterns on the boat tail, and what appears to be visually accurate dimensions. It's workable.
  7. What happened to my body flap decal, did you put it on the opposite side? I could send you a replacement that would look better than the cartoonish Cutting Edge decal. Your build looks marvelous by the way. And no, that's not my window decal that Dutycat used as his template. His windows are a bit smaller I believe. This is going to be one outstanding shuttle!
  8. Not right now, I'm in the process of moving, so everything is being boxed up at the moment. May be awhile.
  9. I've been using that Rustoleum 2x like you have in the center photo for the past year almost exclusively. It goes on smoother than Tamiya cans (at least for me, here in the humid south US) and like you say it's a much better bargain for the amount you get in the can. The only down side is the cure time (1 week vs. 1-2 days for the Tamiya).
  10. This is gonna be awesome! Loving the detail the photo etch adds. I'll be getting this kit for myself once some extra money comes in.
  11. Well if I had the ARK kit in my stash, I could make the template for you. But since I don't have the plastic here to trace, I need someone to supply it for me. Will look for your PM.
  12. I have the art for the Buran belly, so all I would need to make a belly tile decal would be an accurate tracing of the belly of your kit. So if you feel like making this for me and scanning it in, I can make you a decal. Let me know if you're interested.
  13. Do you still have the 1/72 tile detail set available for the Monogram shuttle?

  14. You should def seal it in a bag, and I'd be sure to only leave it in there as long as necessary to cool it. In other words, don't forget about it and leave it in there overnight.
