  1. Orion EFT-1 only needed tiles since it was an Earth orbital mission. The kapton tape is needed for lunar and deep space mission due to the faster speeds and more friction the spacecraft will experience.
  2. Hey Pete, glad to see you tackling this oh-so-fun kit. habu2 is right, the Redstone is way too short. There is a 3D-printed part in my Shapeways shop that you can affix to the top of the booster to correct the length. Just shave off the "milkstool" ring, glue on the new part to the top, and you're done! There's other goodies in the store also if you want to convert some of the other rockets to other variants. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/hdmodelworks?section=1%2F200+AMT+Man+In+Space+Kit+Add-Ons+%26+Conversions&s=0 Also, I have a set of decals for the MIS kit that
  3. Yep! All of that gets covered with foil, so the dome wouldn't be visible, and only some outward protrusions from the struts.
  4. Check and make sure the doors line up good with the forward bulkhead and crew compartment. This is where I messed up on my build. The 3D printed parts made the nose section way too tall.
  5. It's on hold. I messed up my 1/72 shuttle while installing Homer's beanie cap and fwd RCS parts. One day I'll get back around to it with a new build
  6. These look amazing! Do you plan on selling them, or making them available for download or purchase on Shapeways? Could use a Shuttle SSME set in 1/100 for the Tamiya kit, I don't think anyone has ever doneoffered 'em in that scale!
  7. No need to reinvent the wheel on those umbilical panels, I have them for both the aft section and the underside (belly)
  8. 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/
  9. Looks like the issue with the LM descent stage being too small may be fixed in this scale?
  10. FYI Photo showing the "hook" on early Discovery... https://ibb.co/BG5RBHD
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. Not right now, I'm in the process of moving, so everything is being boxed up at the moment. May be awhile.
