I will use 0402 led for wall light with 3d print parts, and some 0201 led for smaller light on mast, cabin light will be provided by 2.5mm light strip. doors and windows will be 3d print parts to seal the light in cabin well.
first peace will be cutted in May and target is to finish in 1.5 years.
thanks the reference of paper fan and marco, I also found 2 germany forum guy finished this project, i'm reading predecessor's post carefully.

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course, but the Yuri Gagarin is one of those cunstructions that are so ugly that they come out beautifull again

It's a ship that is on my wishlist as well, however, I don't think I have the skills for it.

well, surely you know Russia's beauty very well!
you know, they looks like just use very primitive material and design to make such a massive thing, and it's functional, without elegant,. that's wild and crazy like Mad Max makes you feel so cool

I have seen this ship built on another website. Your plans are very ambitious and this will be a most impressive model with the addition of the lighting system. I look forward to following your progress.

Built this model a few years back. Posted here. She's a beautiful model and not too hard of a build.

Wow! I remember the photo images of Gagarin in the daily press when I was a boy. I was often impressed with the uncommon silhouette of this ship. Later, when I grow up, I wondered how such a vessel could bear the blows of wind, a stormy weather and massive rainfalls, having such uncommon "chalices" elevated so high above the sea level. So this was an intriguing engineering structure for me. I am not sure if I found it exactly beautiful, but as for your model, it looks beautiful indeed and the vast numbers of the small details on the antennas is really impressive! Thanks for sharing!

Agreed, the engineering that had to go into the hinge structures had to be intense. I too imagined to shear forces the ship would have to endure in any kind of gale.

Impressive! Iíll be interested to watch. Regarding the keel and strengthening formers, did you glue the temp late to the heavier card then cut or ho did you go about that?
I havenít built one of these style models as yet but I know they require you to source 0.5mm, 1.0mm, 2.0mm thicknesses of card then make the formers.
Regards,
Alan

hi paper fan, I read your post and also Marco's post many times for referance before I start.
i also collected lots of materials for reference, unorderly this is a quite old ship and ended it's life in India, so there's really not enough picture, especially for antenna and riggings. you can also see even in real historical picture, the color of mast is sometimes black and sometimes white.

I read posts all over the world and it looks like there's about 5-6 models were built, I also read the designer's post in onlypaper, he also have fighting with other people about the shape on ship, so that I decide to build it according the official book, and as much as I can.yuri gagarin 1:200 [orel]-1.jpg
