This is coming together beautifully! Everything looks very clean!

@dhanners, @Rhaven Blaack and @Tonino thanks for the kind comments.

@Wad Cutter : about the Orion III. I started that model hoping to start a bigger project: all 2001 ASO models designed by UHU02, built in the same sequence they appear in the film. Then, i encountered some problem with the fitting between the segments of the fuselage, some detail didn't satisfy me, where to put the leds to lighten the interior ... so I suspended the model and I think i'll restart the Orion or maybe the Moon Bus, that seems to me more easier.

Anyway, here some step ahead with the elements of the connection tunnel.




Just a dry fit



Here is where I am now and I have to stop for some week: Life calls elsewhere...

Best, Nando

Repetition, repetition, repetition... boy... my hands would be aching about now if I were building that. (but you're good at it... the million or so rocket nozzles on the Collins Ferry rocket prove that point...)

After a while more detail on the connectors.

The first example





And then we can start with the others eleven ( about repetition .... )







And then others twelve details, and then others twelve, and then others twelve....

Best, Nando

Your pictures are perfect example of why I don't do tanks or anything on tracks.This is my paper nightmare looks like.

I'm looking into this build because it will be challenging task.I wonder how it will come together.It looks really cool.

Thanks for the kind comments and I can agree with you about tanks an tracks, at least partially. In this case I have been misled by the apparent simplicity of the model and I didn't realized that if there are twelve simple boxes ( the modules ) there are also twelve joining tunnels, each with four connectors, each composed .....
In the case of my design of Collier's Ferry Rocket, I was almost constrained to make a bunch of tiny rocket engines ( 95 if I remember right ), if I wanted to make the most of an important detail of the subject that I had to reproduce.
But, I acquired a sort of philosophy repetitively making the same parts , letting my hands slowly learn to do the work alone while the thoughts went elsewhere. It's relaxing at the end.
Maybe in the future after a little training I can also deal with tanks and tracks.

Best, Nando

Another batch of connectors on the tunnel elements: the red group (cupola).






Next the green group

Whew. I hope you aren't susceptible to migraines. This would definitely give me a headache
