Something new here, a 3D printing desing from artworker Max Grüter, does some astronaut figures and I ask him do is a Gagarin figure in different scales, does he did this SK-1 spacesuit.

I did the scale 1/6 but there also smaller version 300 mm high. 1/16 and more astronaut figures.

I did this one in seven hours, the most was primer paint and detail work.

It's great to see more Soviet era models becoming available and this one looks nicely done.

With this one I was already busy complete today this diorama, 1/6 Gemini ejection seat out of styrene plates and Titan rocket 1/72 out of this series.

Put this two together on a base and we have a nice theme diorama.

Thanks for the compliment.

The two Apollo 1/1 props from desinger Michael Key are not ready yet, but the 1/72 Energia Super Vulkan that never came from the drawing table is done after 206 hours. A real paint killer and worse kit — extremely thin plastic.

This must be very bright candle by launch:

As promised, here is the set Apollo controls, 1:1 Apollo Rotation Control and 1:1 Apollo Translation Control (photo gallery). These are 3D printing parts designed by Michael Key. The screws, the cable, type plates and paint I have done by myself and try to give it a old using look.

Does now for people how can afford a real one of half a million, I hope you like it. For more info of parts ask Michael Key to order them.

In the series big rockets, here the Soviet N-1 1/96 vacuum form plastic kit from brand Ramellov (rare).

Very difficult model, extreme thin plastic and I need it also inside fill with spray foam to make it stronger for the primer and paint layers. The model is poor by details I need to give it plenty styreen skin parts.

The book "N-1: For the Moon and Mars" from Jack Hagerty was a very handy tool with extreme extra many details.

The little two cosmonauts are 3D printing figures. Total height of this model 111 cm.

Pascal, just ordered some parts for a 1/32 CSM from Michael Key, asked him if he knew anybody who could do a nice detailed interior for it, and he pointed me to you. What would it cost for you to do one for me and ship to UK? Your work is awesome.

Thanks for the compliment. I did a 1/25 Apollo CM from 3D printing from designer Michael Key, you mean this scale?

This diorama has the name: Apollo 12 "SCE to AUX"

Or this Monogram 1/32

Is the ejection seat all scratch built? Vitra Design Museum has a series of 1/6th scale chairs, this would make a great addition!

Today Wubbo Ockels memorial base finished. Ockels is the first ESA astronaut dutch how made a flight mission in 1985 with the largest crew ever, shuttle mission STS-61A.

Wubbo is deceased on May 18, 2014 at 68 years of age. Many Dutch were impressed Wubbo's shuttle flight and subsequent work in the field of green energy projects.

The layout base with real bronze figures are done by me, the text under Wubbo Ockels figure is composed by Hans van der Lande, the very nice painting work behind the figures is from artist Ed Hengeveld.

The headline in front of the base "We are all astronauts Spaceship Earth" of himself from his 10 commandments. A nice collaborative project commemorating first Dutch ESA astronaut.

Hiya, Pascal and others.

First of all, I'd like to say your models are awesome. Although my style differs a bit.

I see you have used the Skilcraft kit for the Hubble, and I'm waiting for one to cross the pond here to Europe hopefully early enough so I can also finish it as a Yule present.

Now, I don't have the time nor the money to silver plate anything, so trusty old Alclad metal pain(t) will have to do.

But as far as I know, the kit is not very detailed out of the box, and I cannot find any super detail upgrades by googling either. Could you or someone here kindly recommend me a good resource site for making them from scratch?

Sure, I can look at NASA photos, but I have yet failed to find a specifically modeler point of view site.

Thanks joona!! Here are the links that I also use a blueprint: the Ninefinger site and simple paper models with good details to make it in styrene, the 1/48 version.

Thank YOU! I found out that there is a solar panel upgrade for the somewhat crude Skilcraft ones, but it seems to be impossible to find from anywhere, including eBay.

The solar panels are quite a challenge to get the surface reflections right, but I have a few ideas for half scratch building.

If they work, I'll post some pics somewhere when done. If they don't I stay silent and ashamed for bungling it.

Heheh. Nice manga touch there. If she had dark hair, she'd be just like Battle Angel Alita (Cally) from her temporarily forgotten past as a Mars crack trooper in the Mars-Earth civil war.

As for the solar panels I was worrying about, I think I'll try iridescent holochromatic foil coated with transparent dark blue lacquer. We'll see how it works out. Maybe not realistic, but should at least look nice.

May I ask how do you do yours, or is that a professional secret?

My latest model, this one I build for my wife her birthday. Spent 440 hours into it. The resin kit is from Randy Cooper, there is using copper, gold, silver, brass, wood and more. Figures are made by other doll artist.

The most people know the old version of the movie Time Machine 1960 of story Herbert George Wells, I did the version out the movie 2002 [video].

I wish everyone a good Christmas and happy 2015.

I'm busy these days with new 3D printing item: Mercury 2 space chimp "Ham" with control box, design by Max Grueter.

Is there in scale 1/6 1/12 for Mercury Atomic City kit. Photos later of end result.

My latest project people, a seafloor diorama with found in 1989 a Saturn V F-1 engine theme name: "Fade of Glory". I have take a 20 years period theme on the sea floor, there was more left over of the engine than the real recovery of Apollo 11 F-1 by Bezos. For more photos, see here.

There's really nothing more to say than "WOW!" Seriously, I wish I had a fraction of your talent. I've tried doing models with my son, and it just isn't my area of expertise. I'm consistently blown away by what you are able to produce, and even more by the uniqueness of it all. Please keep it up. It's a pleasure to view your artwork.
