Wires are wrong color. Four on each valve. Red, green, black and white. Red and green are automatic coils electrically installed in parallel with driver and black and white are connected in series for manual control.

Thanks for your correction, pity I did not have the correct info or close up photos of the wires. But your info is very handy. I'm now busy working on my own copy.

If you need help I was one of the engineers on the Apollo RCS at Marquardt and hold patents on the uprated versions that are used today. Also have a "real" Apollo LM RCS module (4 engines and dog-house).

Stunning! Absolutely stunning! That's a great piece and good idea for a teaching aid.

What material were the parts printed in? So far I've had good results with most of Shapeways materials but the one I had printed in black was too waxy. The stainless steel parts are pretty nice, I have a 1/100th X-15 early version model in production, I'll post pics once I get it.

Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really like this one Pascal because it is such a functional piece, not just a model.

Fantastic!

I'd probably buy one of these, if someone is thinking of starting a business...

My latest RCS set on base, try a new done type paint improved technique on the engine bells, painting on real silver is very delicate work end I was not satisfied with the first plating one.
