I'm new to this hobby. What are your thoughts on the Proach Models?

I was looking at some of the space shuttle models they have. From what I can see in the pictures, the paint colors on these don't seem quite accurate. Especially on the external tank. This is my own personal opinion now. Thanks in advance.

I have purchased several models by Nick Proach (Mercury, Gemini and Apollo). Without a doubt, these are the most accurate and detailed models. Top quality. I'm sure any Space Shuttle model would be built mission specific if requested.

I own eleven models from Nick. Some production and some custom models. His models are good enough for NASA, they are good enough for me. I find his work top quality and his service excellent. Nick is on line to build a N-1 for me this year.

Ooooh. Very interesting about the N1. What scale is it going to be? Always fancied a large 1/72nd or so model of the N1 L3. There is a beauty in one of the Russian museums - Moscow I think - that must be 12 foot tall. Always wondered who made it.

I have had a relationship with Nick for many years now. I own many Proach Models and can say they are all extremely high quality. My favorite is my eight foot tall Saturn V. His prices have had to go up a bit lately, however they are worth it. Plus he is a genuinely nice guy who is easy to work with.

Those models are absolutely breath taking! Too bad I just had to buy a car, and can't afford any for years. Has he ever produced them in a less costly kit form?
