Teakell’s Table; space craft…

Joe’s interests are not confined to terrestrial or airborne vehicles; he shares my passion for spacecraft. Like all of his models, though, he operates at a different scale (in size, as well as quality of build, compared to my accomplishments). It is in space vehicles that some of his artistic talent really comes through.

The table that Joe manned provided a wide variety of non-atmosphere craft. In addition to the NASA X vehicle pictured early in this Thread, he had a sampling of other space vehicles (see pic 1). Note the blue pen added amongst his kits, to provide the small scale of the build. The collection of builds includes different scale space shuttles and rockets, as well as a Gemini capsule (see pic 2). He seems to had a special affinity for the shuttle Atlantis.

There were even tiny Soviet era capsules docking with a space station. (see pic 3). One of the more impressive builds was the tiny Saturn rocket complex, with tower and base (see pic 4) Note how much bigger the pen is to the rocket! From another angle, the detail and clean process of the build illustrates the skill that was invested.
