Yesterday a bit busy with the F-1 engine fin base of Saturn v, section red blanket covers. It is not difficult to make, just from styrene sheet form making, heat it up (important to have heat resistant fingers ) and form and convert it, spray color and assemble.

Only some details out and ready, there is also a crumpled on the ground that is already pull off. Now make the total theme picture and this one is ready for not take of.

The other Saturn V F-1 diorama was ready, and I want still make a other theme, does this time the Alamogordo Space Center Museum split version, I cut of the lower engine bell and make now the behind section.

It's almost done and later the top of the engine on the transport carrier, it can be place vertical or laying, but a nice set.

Here the end result of a 3D printing Apollo CM capsule of brand Shapeways. I have give it a Mylar pattern and in mirror plating silver look and later paint details, so as reentry look, etc. This model is little bigger than the Code 3 version.

This model is not for sale. It is for someone in the UK how ask for this version.

Thanks! Last of this week, 1/70 full scratch micro Vostok I and Voskhod II diorama. Use a lot of remaining waste materials styrene, resin, brass rod, transparent little polystyrene balls, etc. When everything put together with the details as I got done with even a large Voskhod II 1/16, than the painting this little ones I have do this between two blue sheets, otherwise details are not to see by the silver sparkle, antenna, s wire. Has a diameter of 0.3 mm. On the last photo you see how big they are, egg size.
