1/144 Shuttle Enterprise in Approach and Landing Test configuration.

Classic Revell shuttle kit. Tried using pencil for the panel lines on this one. Mostly kit decals with a few custom cut from color decal film. The dummy SSME bells were filed and sanded smooth to match original. Window masks were made using the AXM Paper Models as a template that was white glued in place. Pitot tube made from 0.040 plastic rod.

These 100 lb thrust rockets were used for the RCS quads on the Apollo LM and SM. I picked up this 3D print from eBay at a good price, knowing that it was coarse print that needed cleanup. Overall fit was good and the cleanup went smoothly with no surprises.

Overall paint was Tamiya bare metal from a rattle can. The combustion chamber is Tamiya metallic gray. The expansion bell collar was painted Modelmaster enamel chrome silver. The bell heat stains were simulated with airbrushed Tamiya clear yellow, clear blue, clear red and smoke.

The data plates are decals printed by Michael Key applied to 0.005 sheet styrene painted with plastickote rattle can chrome.

Converted from the classic Revell Vostok kit. Removed the molded details on the equipment module and built up new details with plastic stock and wire. Reconfigured the aft section of the equipment module with sheet styrene and added the forward equipment module built up from sheet styrene.

The extendable airlock is styrene and paper. The tanks at the base of the airlock are Gemini leftovers covered with tissue. The crew sphere had new portholes made and covered with hexagons of Bare Metal Foil. Antennas are from brass wire and paper clips.

The figure is the New Ware Leonov spacewalker.
