Fantastic work on the Soyuz capsule. I saw it at one exibition at Genova some year ago. If i can find some picture i did, i can share them with you, but I despair to find them.
However great model and you are right that there isn't any paper model of this spacecraft, that could deserve more attention being a milestone of the history of space flight.
It could be beautiful if you could share your work with all of us, but I suspect that the way you design and scratch build your model isn't shareable.
This thread will be however a good reference for who would pick up the challenge.
Keep up the good work.

Best Nando

Thanks, Nando! The Soyuz actually started out as something I wanted to share but especially the small titbits I make on the fly are almost impossible to reproduce. I would have to re-draw them by hand and then it would look a little clumsy. I could share the overall shape of a 1/25th Soyuz but that would be without anything else. That wouldn't do, I'm afraid.
I am not really a designer for that matter...

More progress. I now have almost all stuff in place and the only things left are the exposed inner shield at the bottom and the top hatch for the crew.
The hull got even more colouring at the burnt bare metal part and the RCS thrusters are made and put in place. The portholes were easy to make, they were made out of several layers of paper on top of each other and a piece of transparent overhead projector sheet as the window. The reason they are deep inside the hull is that the outer window is scorched during re-entry and jettisoned after that. This way the capsule has some light back and perhaps the cosmonauts are able to have a quick peek outside.
The reserve parachute hatch was accentuated by carving its outline into the hull rather than cutting it out (might have had some troubles with realigning all the seams and this was just as good) and reinforcing it all from the inside with a ring behind the carved section. I then made a small upstanding rim for the top. I presume this is for protecting the main entrance hatch from the heat and flames during re-entry (The main chute hatch also has one.).

The thing I found the most scary was saved until last, I glued the main chute canister inside the capsule. I was afraid I'd mess this up, it looked so good and I wanted it to go inside just right. And it did. Thank goodness.
I used four drops of CA glue to set it in place and secured it after it dried with a rich layer of PVA around the outside of the ring inside. Glue doesn't stick well to the shiny surface of the metal coated paper.
So, next up is the top hatch. I still have to design the shield below, though. It has a lot of text, rockets and small hatches on it and I still have to figure out where all the hatchy, rockety and texty stuff has to go..

Thanks, Rifleman.

I am a little further now, with adding the top hatch and ring structure. Made it out of shiny metallic coated paper on which almost no glue sticks. The hatch itself is a tank dome of Leo Cherkashyn's Proton rocket. I used silver paper to cut it from. The ring is from a strip of rolled-up blue hobby paper, of which I sanded off the end of the strip to make the transition a little smoother. The ring and inside is made of metallic coated paper.
I spot welded the hatch to the ring with four strategically placed drops of CA glue. Then the whole shebang was put in place with a dab of PVA in the inside of the ring. After it had dried for a while I put a royal amount of PVA around the hatch from the inside of the capsule, securing it into place.

Now next is the inner shield of the Soyuz.
When the capsule descends on its parachute, the outer heat shield is jetissoned. beneath this shield there is the inner shield, housing braking rockets, homing beacons and an altimeter as well as bilingual instructions on how to free the occupants of this spacecraft if the salvage teams are nowhere to be seen and the people inside need some fresh air.
I made one trial and it looks all right but not all right enough. So I am puzzling on with where to place the text and the glue lines and all that.

and there you have it.

Last build entry.
I made the definitive version of the inner shield using metallic coloured paper. I printed the rescue instructions separately and glued them on later. The insides of the capsule were reinforced a bit and the shield section was glued on. To make the outside of the hull look more coarse like the real thing, I used black paint mixed with fine grained sand, mostly used for bird cages. I applied it heavily to one side, slightly and gradually less toward the umbilical / periscope section on the opposite side.
And then all I still needed to do is putting it on the deck of the Zil to finish the build.

And that's it. One almost by-the-book built Zil 4906 "Kran" designed by Maksart and one fully scratch built Soyuz capsule designed by myself. On and off it took me from mid December last year until now to get it finished.

And... I really like your critics and comments. Without it, it feels a bit as if no one even is interested in this build at all...

Thanks!

Outstanding work. Thank you PK for touching on a subject that doesnt get much attention.
