In a couple weeks I'll be visiting schools in southern Utah and spending 4 nights in a hotel. I should have some spare time to work on at least a few components, practice builds for my ambitious 1:39 ISS. My plan is to incorporate elements of your 8 ft model and some scaled up components of AXM's 1:100 ISS.I'm going to experiment with a smaller scale first and work up. I also expect to do some scratch building and greebling along the way. I might start a new thread with photos of the whole development.
Thank you Yogi and AXM for your fine designs. You've inspired a monster.:D
