TESS - Falcon 9

It happens I just started to build the TESS-Observatory on the second stage of Falcon 9.
I used the TESS-model from theNASA-site.
The second stage of the Falcon 9 in this flight is the same as used for Falcon Heavy and the Tesla-display.



The TESS-model was downscaled to 1:100. As adaptor ring I use the one from the Tesla-second stage. The propulsionunit is the grey one from Falcon Heavy. The adaptor ring is not recolored, just cutted of a part of the inner circle to make it fit around the sattelites ringmount.

The sharp viewer must have noticed I went wrong...
The TESS is by far to big. Twice as big.
Found that on the modelpages the scale was noted as 1:40, but it is 1:20 as the coverpage says...
Thinking about rebuilding one of the components. :-(
