Teakell’s Table; space craft (Continued)…

Joe’s builds are filled with detail and skill. He was most generous with his time to share what he had done, and even tips on how to mirror his efforts (more on his build tips later…).

He shared a space shuttle, in process of completion, showing how much effort that he put into the command deck, despite it being enclosed and visible only through windows (see pic 1).

He also shared the detail of his precision, curved folding, that created the shape of the rockets that he built (see pic 2). In this case, that precision was added to another feature; the tiny rocket was constructed to blast off, and fly a few feet, through an air bladder.

He also showed how many of his rockets separated into the various accurate stages (see pic 3). This made his kits both aesthetically detailed and informative, when he described the actual vehicles that he modeled.
