  1. Should we nod if we can hear you? Or do you need some information first? ðŸĪĢ Very, very cunning plan to make such tiny parts so accurately. Had you ever considered being a vascular surgeon?
  2. Even with the help of your giant 1 cent (😁) and the scale on your cutting mat, I often forget just how tiny all these pieces are. At the moment, my head is in 1:24 world, so please ignore any stupid suggestions I make!!
  3. Hi Manfred. I must have missed your previous idea because I'm not clear why each is four parts? Could each bracket not be made from a small section of U-shaped channel? I assume (probably incorrectly) that you don't intend to have working pivot pins - but if you did, that would still only be 4 parts per rail section?
  4. Sounds like an interesting project, Rittic. I think it's great when you have a personal connection - does wonders for motivation. Looking forward to more pics of real and digital models. Kirk.
  5. Does this mean that we may be treated to another build thread soon?
  6. Love the way you are turning a little bit more Manfred with each day. Before you know it, you'll be modelling the ignition key... 😁ðŸĪŠðŸ™‚ðŸĪŠðŸĪŠðŸĪŠ
  7. Looking forward to seeing your crawler thread, Logan. 🙂
  8. Apologies Manfred - I sometimes forget that English is not your 1st language, and write in a complicated way. I was only saying that if you made these parts any larger, they would probably be fully functional. This was a joke, as styrene/paper rockets would melt and catch fire. Also, STS-6's payload was a satellite called "TDRS-A". I just wondered if you were going to make this too?
  9. I reckon at 1:72 scale, you could have a fully working Space Shuttle system. It might only get 1:72 of the way to orbit (or less unless you can provide a 1:72 atmosphere) but it's a start.😉 Forgive me if you have mentioned before:- are you making TDRS-A too?
  10. Er - I think it is you who shows a steely determination to relentlessly progress this masterpiece. I can still remember (just!) when I first saw your work on one of the pad's many ladders and then watched in awe as the sound suppression system's pipework came together. I am not sure what I will do with myself if it is ever complete; Stop learning what is possible to model at such a tiny scale, I suppose!! 😁 I hope you stay motivated throughout 2023 and beyond...
