Cassini-Huygens 1/48 - ABC

I did get a copy of the Cassini-Huygens in 1/48 from ABC a while back... The instructions are in Slovak.

Pro Tip: Google translate does a crap job for Slovak to English on instructions. It is not a good set of translated instructions to go from.

The wireframe drawings are helpful, but still leave out a few details and you have to make a few guesses. But overall, it comes out looking pretty nice. I did simplify a few of their mounting details for the various sections. I would recommend that you completely bail on their ideas for thin rods that go through various objects. Use toothpicks, small wood dowels, or lolipop sticks instead. Just doing that will make your life much easier.





Here is the gallery: Album: cassini

Also, here is the sexy turntable video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygYiZ-AxS6k

Here is the time lapse video of the build: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...4qhJ_zbCfRVOlq

I hope this helps. Ask away for any questions you have.

That is a great build of a really interesting spacecraft. Congratulations. I really enjoyed your time lapse videos of the build. Do you mind saying what was the music you put with each of the 4 videos as they went together really well (I thought)

Regards

Kevin

I don't really know off the top of my head. I used YT's editor to put the music in. I went into the audio selector and searched for "space" and a duration long enough to cover the video and picked one at semi-random. Each of those tracks are royalty free out of the YT editor.
