Here is a diorama [slide show] with a cosmonaut working on NASA hardware in space. The hardware was created by myself (a lot of styrene), the cosmonaut is a brass figure by a company that I have given a paint layer and details...

Here the end result of a scratch-built cutaway 1:4 Sputnik. On Monday it will be a week before the 53rd anniversary when the space race began. The model is out styreen, copper, silver and much more materials. The table is also in old USSR look of copper.

Building time: a month. Enjoy the photos [slideshow]:

The NASA Skylab project is ready. The renovation took me six months. The cost on new materials included chemical cleaning for all the iron parts: euro 352,20. On the outside a little EVA astronaut makes a spacewalk. New solar panels, etc. Enjoy the photos [more here].

Thanks people.

Under the Skylab project, I was also building an X-33 1/144 from Stratosphere Models. A nice kit, the payload bay I have made extra in it with a little satellite how come out. This gives this model that little extra than only a closed body.

As promised, not only a Sputnik out of early days, but also an American satellite. Take a old kit 1/20 from Hawk, the Explorer 18 satellite and a few styrene plates and blew it up to a scale 1/4...

Theme of the base is the radiation with magnetic fields what the satellite pick up...

Thanks fellows.

In the meantime, I was also busy with a renovation of a small desktop model, it has some damage, but after a renovation time, it's almost new. It's from massive award, with a description plate of a person what has do something with this split version of a Hubble Space Telescope.

Height of model: 4 inches, weight: almost 2 pounds, rare object I think?
