Building things like this takes patience and dare I say it ... endurance ... but the end result will make it all worthwhile. Looking forward to a strong finish :-)

In my opinion, endurance has to play a killer roll in modeling. Do I keep at it or do I hang this model up. For me it's after I've giving up does a idea or help from this forum keep me going. But that's just me. wc

Green and Blue

No better name for this model I guess, and I had to apply all my endurance to form all those wheels: I had to trim each disc with his ring, slowly working it with sandpaper.




So the green group is complete.

The blue group is the more complex but luckily I have only four elements.
First the rings, the common part to all the groups, and the cylindrical part that I think is like the PMA (Pressurized Mating Adapter) on the ISS.



Then a sort of collar all around the "PMA", very tricky to cut, fold and glue.




Now, after assembly completed for the blue group, I just have to assemble the individual connectors of the communication tunnel.

Best, Nando

PS: looking at the second picture, it seems to me to see the wheels of a tank, and so I think that after this experience it will not scare me so much the construction of a tank model

I completed the blue group and I put all the parts together, assembling the connectors of the tunnel. Here some picture.






Now we can start with the central docking hub
May be it is too soon, but I began to think about how to display the model. Any suggestion?

Best, Nando

Hi there!

Wow! Very nice build so far! I am looking forward to see the parts coming together. This is indeed a nice and inspiring forum here with all the models being built. Keep on the good work nando!

While I'm working on the central docking hub, I'm thinking how to show the model.
I did some simulation, not in scale, just a sort of visualization.

Interstellar Endurance-stand00_01.jpg
Interstellar Endurance-stand00_02.jpg

Which one do you prefer? I prefer the first one, the simplest. In this case the ship leans on the engine modules.
Any suggestion?

Best, Nando

Nr3 would add a bit of depth,than again I think nr2 would be even better if it had 3rd panel and all 3 were about twice the height of the finished model.Imagine the illusion thatw ill give.

Hey,I can staple one sheet like this to my ceiling and hang U-2 spy under it.Cool idea,thx.

btw-I mentioned Interstellar and spaceship Endurance to my SF film ignorant friend and response I got was " I didn't know Viagra sponsored film making" .I think he had Alien Resurrection in mind

Here some step doing the Central Docking Hub.





The following pics depict the most challenging passage, where i think I earned my degree in cutting impossible details.







Here it's were I am, the last picture depicts simply a dry fit, next magnets, docking
connectors for the rangers ....

About the stand, i'll try the #3 but I'll do the first version as backup solution in the worst case.

Best, Nando
