Here a 1/48 resin (New Ware) model of the Soviet Zond-7 spacecraft. This kit has also not so many parts, and was easy to done, the paint work was the most work...

Here is my end result interpretation of the Tribute to the Space Shuttle Program. Theme calls: "The American bird has made her final landing" [more photos]

I have used a lot of materials: wood, glass, etc., etc.. The shuttle of copper cover with real sand than in color, the glass around the eagle's head is related of the two lost shuttle (the fragile moments), the heat shield is also covered to over the nose with real sand and got a reentry color layer.

Weight total diorama: 34 pounds. Cost? I have stop with count

Only the inscription plates with STS pin logo must come on the base and it's ready...

Pascal keeps me updated on his work and it is such a joy to follow the building process. He really is a true artist with a real love for the space program. I doubt there will ever be a better builder and in this I am taking into account he has to endure physical pains while doing it (please forgive me Pascal for mentioning this but it is solely said out of respect).

One small caveat: As an Eagle Scout, wouldn't Neil know not to let the flag touch the ground?

Great model!

Here is the end result (slideshow) of a diorama with a 1/12 Gemini astronaut Ed White in a bigger sphere almost in diameter 10 inch. I have done this before with a scale 1/24.

The astronaut is mounted on a brass tube (2mm) if they knock against the table, the astronaut moves a little in the sphere, a nice extra.

Wow Pascal another work of art. The scale is gigantic at 1:18. This was a scratch build model? I also really like the base and the colors...

Keep them coming!!!!

1:16 Vostok is even bigger. These models will make some private collector very happy and proud. You will need a mansion to display these models in this scale.

Here is the end result of a 1/8 Apollo resin astronaut. The kit is from Lunar Models.

I have chosen astronaut Edgar Mitchell. First the kit sanding and put it together, two extra sample bags made out of resin, extra helmet out of ping pong ball and Hasselblad cam.

The whole astronaut has a layer of copper only for the visor mirror look. Weight of whole diorama: 8 pounds.
