Pascal, the finished rover is beautiful!!! I was lucky enough to see progress shots throughout the build, with it slowly coming to life. You are very welcome for the printed parts- I was glad to be part of the build. I know your customer will be very happy with it!!!

WOW... wow... wow!!! That is a masterpiece.

If you were to put a price tag on it, what would you ask? How big is that?

Really great work.

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!

Yes the ejection seat is scratch built.

Here a model the first one I place here is also space but more science fiction spacecraft out of the movie "Oblivion." Maybe some people have seen it?

This is the Randy Cooper's resin garage kit, scale 1:20, big one. There is also by other brand the 1:48.

After plenty hours hobby in plating and polish it careful to alumium look you get this as end result.

Shapeways can print a flexible material if I recall correctly and if you used that you could engineer the control stick so it could move just like the real thing.

Take that one step further... you could wire it to the quads, put a light in each nozzle and when you moved the stick the lights would come on!

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.
