Preview of coming attractions, Part 2....

Still LOTS of work to do (scratchbuilding all the plumbing and Sound Suppression System and rainbirds, adding the Side 1 decks, canopies and railings, scratching the SRB hold-down posts, touch-up, etc.) but here's what Alfonso's MLP looks like in 1/288h scale. I added a few scratchbuilt details.

I still need to figure out what might replicate the catwalk railings in this scale. Suggestions are welcome.

That said, don't expect Manfred's level of detail. It is 1/288th scale, after all....

When it is done (along with Alfonso's Crawler/Transporter) my build of his STS-1 will sit on it.

You've set yourself quite a task David, especially at that scale. Looking forward to seeing you pull it off. No doubts here!

Got sides 1, 2 and 4 plumbed, and the decks, canopies and railings installed on Side 1. Don't know if you can tell it from the photos, but I cut out the railings and installed ones made from thin strips of gray paper so they are, indeed, railings instead of solid pieces. Even in 1/288th, it looks pretty decent in person.

Next, I'll work on the Sound Suppression System on top, and add some detail to the Tail Service Masts.
