I've messed around with Kerbal, but some of the little kids (Brony's, and some outright trolls) on their forum made me lose interest in it altogether. For a much more grown up forum (and simulator) have you seen Orbiter? Orbiter 2016 Space Flight Simulator

Here's a look at a Buran launch.

This is a grand project: she looks like she'll fly!

A great model, Nando; are you going to make this commercially available? If so, sign me up!

Those little figures are awesome for scale!

I can't recall whether it was the yellow orbital space station or the nuclear space station designs that were made into plastic model kits, but one of them had this ship you're making docking with it, on the box art of the kit. That gave the sense of scale for the space station too!

Mike absoletely not shame! Your model is wonderful, but as I said, I would have liked to realize the entire stack, so I started my own project and your model is an inspiration for my work.

Yes I know and I landed at the Cape many times with the Shuttle. There is also a good simulation of the ďWorld of CollierísĒ.

Thanks, southwestforests. I agree with you that is notable that something could be survived on Youtube for so long time.

I donít know if Iíll be able to complete this project, but if Iíll can do it, Iíll consider if I can share it in some way.
There is much more work to do if you want to release a model buildable from people other than yourself.

In my last projects, starting from Fatman and following LM, Gundam, Moonliner and Falcon 9, I usually put some figure to give the sense of scale, mainly for me and then for the people that could look at my models.

About the yellow station, I think you refer to the model kit of the Disneyís Space Station ( the Nuclear one ) produced first by Strombecker and then reissued by Glencoe. In the box-art of the last one, it is depicted a Ferry Rocket, but that of the Disneyís era.

First Stage

Back to the model first stage.

First I assembled the inter-stage section





Then I started with the body of the stage. I marked small bumps for have a reference where to put the positioning ring inside.



I assembled the parts using the bulkheads, and the fit was good.





The two segments joined.



The interior side of engineís compartment was clad.



Ö and finally the stowage compartment of the parachute.



Now Iím dealing with the engines (51), and I not found a solution that I like.

To be continue.

Ah!

You're right!

Now that would be a good kit too.

If you mean the shuttle, well, that actually *is* a model and it is found in the very download section here, as mentioned before in the thread. Not just the 'shuttle' but also the launch vehicle and instructions.

Sorry, I wasn't clear!

I was saying that either of the old Glenco space stations would make good paper models, it the curves could be managed.
