Just checked in to say I fired up the paper modeling skills again. I started with some small improvements on the Atlas V.
I took off the longer instrument tunnel and made a new with a more rounded look. It's drying now, I continue tomorrow. After that, I think I first tackle Juno in 1/96.
Okay, here's some pics.
|Alas V 500 CCB and a Centaur upper stage.|
|Instrument tunnel, fuel line and solid rocket booster attachment points.|
|Business end. Engines are repainted, Text is new. The engine skirts are there in real life too.|
|Centaur upper stage. I used Mark Cable's engine bell from the Titan.|
They have that beautiful curved bell shape. The hull is from gloss photo paper.
The instrument tunnel is curved and hollow.
|The engine has a silver accented rim. The balls are beads I painted. next to the engine is an exhaust.|
