I managed to finish part one of the structures around the main bus part of Voyager. The Radio-isotope Thermo-electric Generator sits at the end of a tubular structure extending from the main bus. I first thought this would be almost impossible to make, being this small. However, it was worth a try. I used pins for the structure and glued them together with CA. It still needs a little dab of paint but the general looks are good.
I have added the RTG and the High Gain Antenna dish and the probe is starting to look the part, if I may say so. Tiny stuff, so the pics are big this time. Click 'em up for the better view.
More after the break.
|The small triangle part is where the magneto boom extends after deployment.|
|it fits perfectly on the stack.|
|And the dish of the HGA exactly reaches the end of the shroud, where the cone begins.|
|Voyager still needs the instrument boom on the other side and then I'll do the cone.|
