Pioneer 6 1/24

I figured I may as well post this here.







The real thing:



I've been experimenting with drawing in PowerPoint while designing Ulysses, and this resulted during some experimenting. I have time to draw, but no time to actually build most of the time right now due to work.
This is a very simple Pioneer 6 that I did in 1/24 scale. It lacks some detail at this point (mainly instrumentation -- they didn't do a lot of detail photography of spacecraft back in 1965), but this is the beta build and it looks decent (to me) so far, so I should be able to bring it up to standards if anyone wants it. (And yes, there are 30 louvers inside the bottom of the bus -- still thinking about how to do that in a sane way.)
Getting better at this as I go (I hope)...

Oh well, for someone who claims not to be a designer I'd say you're doing pretty well. That's a very nice rendition and I really like the louvres, they add so much reality to the probe. Very nice! Petje af*, as we Dutch people sometimes say.

(*meaning 'chapeau!')

I'm hoping to make it a little more buildable, and then I'll post it here for download. There's not a lot in the way of instruments included yet, due to a lack of documentation showing me what they're supposed to look like. :D

I see what you mean. Its not easy working off of an artists picture. I'm running into the same problem with my first attempt at designing a model of acrimsat. Its about 90% done but still needs tweaking.

Check out this website. Its in Italian but you could use google translator. It has some good drawings of the spacecraft from NASA.
