Wow, amazing work again. The visor reflection is particularly striking. Well done!

A while back I bought a desktop pen holder with a Gemini 8 heat shield acrylic from the son of a long-time McDonnell employee. There were no pen holders attached, though, just bare screws. I had Steve build a pair of beauties, a Gemini-Titan, and an Atlas-Agena, and made this:

Very nice. How would you rate the Warbird decals as far as completeness and ease of application?

Thanks everyone. The Warbird decals are the best I have used. Ease of application and a full set of tile decals make them a winner.

Steve, I put off responding because I wanted to see the model "in the flesh" before I did. Having received it, I can say that the model is even more beautiful in person! I only hope that the MLP that I build for it is as nice as the stack- well done!!!

Here is a new ware Dust Down built for me by Stephen Nichols... outstanding! Though small scale it makes nice diorama.

Where did you get the RCS model? Shapeways?

Steve, Pascal, and myself have all built 1:1 RCS engines using my 3D printed parts on Shapeways. If you would like to see the parts that are used in the engine, here is a link.

If you have any questions, feel free to let me know. Thanks!

Michael, I am already watching the progress on the LM in 1/24 and 1/32 scale that Vincent Meens is working with you on. I want a large LM so bad I can taste it... affording it might be a different problem.

I just need to decide if I like the new hammer even more than the RCS.

While I wish that I could take credit for helping Vincent on his LM project, I can't. He is doing that great work all on his own!

Stephen did am amazing job on this figure. Notice the detail even in the iris of the eyes and the two tones in the zipper! The CCCP on the helmet is hand painted! He must be painting with a single hair to get this detail. I am again very impressed and happy with this artistry!
