This time related to Neil Armstrong this special diorama, the marble base was damage, but with some little plates styrene under and above the base and paint in fake marble, the helmet on a little table, we got something new.

This time is very cheap little model. My wife work by a company how package all kind of things and the last six weeks Christmas balls. And there were a lot with damage.

And she may have some take home and an average model builder can make nice things with this balls as example the Sputnik. After 5 hours we have a very nice little model for on the desk, and cheap to make.

Very creative as usual, a simple Christmas decoration turned into Sputnik. Fantastic.

I have a feeling an average model maker would probably spend a little more than 5 hours, 5 days maybe... Pascal you are the human rapid prototyper!!

Space themed Christmas baubles... Pascal you might be on to something and it would certainly be a talking point to have some hanging on the Christmas tree this year.

The James version. Looks me nice to do.

The total Lk N-1 diorama base is now ready. The N-1 is from Glenn at RealSpace Models. Very nice kit! Not so difficult one, only good a must is spirit level building.

The progress of the Von Braun 1/10 V-2 rocket engine goes fine. It;s now on 75%. The resin parts (a lot) need much work, much air holes to fill and sanding. Next week it goes for plating and then it's a strong model.

A museum piece, a V2 with exceptional detail which Pascal enhanced with brass pipes and wires. In my opinion it tells you to fire it up on a test bench.

Well done Pascal.

The 1/10 V-2 rocket engine is full put together and will now plated, later the base will come in a memorial base for the forgotten slave workers Mittlebau Dora .

The Mercury 1/12 spacecraft goes slower a lot of details goes into it .

The silver plating looks fantastic! How much do you think it would cost to plate a Topping LEM, it's 1/40th scale.

More stunning work from Pascal, that Hubble looks fantastic, you are going to make it's owner very happy

The 1:10 V2, well can't wait to see that one finished and when it comes to the 1:12 Mercury there again the detail is exceptional. Keep up the good work and keep them coming.

The spacewalking astronaut repairing the Hubble is a beautiful detail.

What gave you the idea to make a memorial to the slave workers?

Thanks people! Gary, I have read a book of this rocket and some things were terrible, there have work on this rocket 60,000 slave workers and more than 20,000 lost there life in this work camp working on the V-2 under not human conditions.

This should not be forgotten.

Pascal, I am so impressed with the work that you do. I wish that I had the time to work on such projects and aspire to gain some of the skill that you posses. With just 25% of your skill I would be happy!

I'm lucky enough to own a couple of Pascals models, but I have to say with each new one that comes along I'm simply blown away by the attention to detail and the originality he brings to each piece.

The Mercury Capsule and Hubble Space Telescope pictured above are again stunning examples of what he can achieve. Museum piece replicas aren't even as good as this.

Well done Pascal, I hope you get as much enjoyment from making these as we all do admiring them once they're finished. I know the ones I have are keepers and I never intend letting them go, I'm proud to have them.

Your masterpiece is finally done. In my opinion it is one of your best ever model. Not only that, but you have honored all those fallen people who took part in the making of the V-2's.

Keep up the good work Pascal and I hope others on this site appreciate the honor and good work you have done.
