This time something new, multiple products from a real space model company from Netherlands, the lab racks are made ​​by them.

I bought only a simple resin figure (female), and change her to a astronaut in ISS Columbus researcher, who is in a medical experiment and suspended state in the space. The hair of this lady is doing it naturally.

After the Columbus diorama, I have ready my second copper silver Saturn V F-1 1/20 engine. The kit is from Accurate Models.

This second model in metal version has a copper layer then two layers of real silver. The carrier is also from copper. This time I have given the engine a red cover blanket on one side. The rest has paint details and place on a nice base.

To let plate such engine model is extreme exspensive related of the silver and copper price. But the result is nice.

Pascal the Columbus researcher captures the feeling of weightlessness very well.

And the F1 engine is simply gorgeous. Well done and congratulations!

Pascal, I absolutely love the rack models!

Would it be possible for you to tell me where I may purchase them?

The warm days are coming, this time a cool diorama, theme: "So cold as ice."

Some companies have left over satellites that they destroy during reentry, then I try to give the item a second life but with a theme around it. As an example, the ESA satellite CRYOSAT, the satellite that inspected the ice thickness in the polar caps, a little water under with real pieces of crystal glass and we have a refreshing new diorama.

"A refreshing new diorama" captures your spirit as well as your work. Another kudos my friend!

Question - are the glass blocks held in place so they don't move around? Thank you.

Thanks. No it's now one big piece of glass. I have used realistic water from woodland, after few days it's so hard as a rock.

Last weeks, I was very busy, a few new dioramas are coming, one shuttle diorama, three Apollo astronaut dioramas. One of the three of the Apollo dioramas will be special.

I want to make an Apollo 12 theme with a Hasselblad 500EL. First I have to search for one but this camera but new or used extreme expensive. Thus I have try to make it myself. I had a lot of pieces left over, styreen parts, and after eight hours a scale 1/2 Hasselblad with Alan Bean self-timer.

This is very fun to do, it's not complete ready and the theme for the total diorama i still thinking about that.

That camera looks great. I can't wait to see what you do with it in the final diorama.

Thanks Gary and Steve!

Gary it's a 1/2, it seems what I have read that this brand camera is a Rolls Royce under the cameras and has NASA also asking a lot of camera companies a test model so as by the moonwatch Omega? Or did buy a astronaut it in a photo shop?

Pascal you are correct that in the 1960's and even to this day the Hasselblad camera is considered one of the very finest photographic instruments.

It was certainly chosen by NASA for its excellent quality, capabilities and versatility; and was not just picked by an astronaut.

Fantastic dioramas.

I hope the astronauts are your own creations and not recasts of the EVA or Reheat creations. Recasting has caused many problems for small producers of models in all genres not only the space community.

Thanks Cassini. I find it remarkable that you get to your first topic I just try to explain what can and can not! Let me explain this, Reheat and EVA models are out of the business. I bought the real figure Reheat, can I make for myself many copies.

But the copies may not sell them as a kit. But a lot of people do that, Japan, China, Germany, USA, UK, name them.

I have here laying a bunch of the real one, but it's pity the the owner of Reheat and EVA models not produce them more. A restart is a golden business.

Just because a company is not currently in business does not mean that copies can be made and distributed.

As for changing a duplicate copy form from a kit to a model, Realspace, New Ware and other such companies would be out of business if others did this.

I used to own a Hasselbald 500CM camera with a Carl Zeiss 80mm Planar lense and it was an amazing tool. The Carl Zeiss lenses that Hasselblad used were incredibly sharp and all of the photographs that the Apollo moonwalkers took were with Hasselblad cameras and Zeiss lenses. I believe that it may have been Wally Schirra who introduced NASA to the Hasselblad/Zeiss products. Nikon is currently the official supplier of photograhic products to NASA and the US space program.

Thanks Gary, yes I have send the photos to Alan Bean. He wrote me this morning:
Both are great. Amazing really. My painting is going well.
I have ask him of he have a idea for the Hasselblad diorama, the astronauts than what they are doing around the camera.

I was this morning busy with something new. Some people know this new kit.

I had my flat storage room I have laying a old ceiling light, this parabolic protective glass can be used for a beautiful not discovered planet maybe billions of miles away in the future.

I have make clean the glass and painting it with ecoline glass paint in style a cloudy planet, the trick is water mixing with car clearcoat paint mixing shaft is oil on water, all the colors give strange effect in aqueous cloud affect.

Later I buy a black base for on the wall make a light in it (little one) place the glass planet and the position of the probe for the planet and you have a new wall diorama with ambient light.

End result will come later.

Pascal, you've done a superb job of bringing Alan Beans paintings to life, wonderful.

I'm surprised at the reprimand you received from a new cS member for using recast OOP kits. I'm not going to open a can-of-worms again on this thorny issue, but I for one would have a massive hole in my collection if these kits weren't being made available again after the companies that made them originally stopped trading years ago.

Just because recasting other peoples models even if out of production fills a collection it doesn't make it right.

Recasting without permission is plagiarism and I believe it should be seen in the same light as artworks, literature, music etc. Recasting has caused a number of cottage industry producers to cease production especially in the science fiction field and stifles new low volume products.

How can permission to copy be sought from a source that no longer exists?

I believe you are confusing recasts of OOP kits from existing supplier ranges (i.e New Ware) which would be despicable with those that have simply disappeared.

I think it's wonderful that others can continue to enjoy the work of people like Chris Chulamanis of EVA models who sadly passed away without (to the best of my knowledge) passing on his business (and kit molds) to someone else.

I fully appreciate a company may have been out of business for a number of years the principle is not greatly different. Even if permission cannot be obtained it does not give free reign to copy others work. Somebody will almost certainly have rights to the work.

In most cases if one REALLY wanted to make the effort, contact could be made with next of kin or rightful owner of the molds, few make the effort.

If contact cannot be made you don't have an automatic right to pirate copy. Most kits can be obtained if somewhat expensive on eBay.
