After seeing what Zoltan did with his base block, I wanted to try and do the same at 25% of that scale. Some handrails alongside the wide section of the hull. I stripped some electrical wire and took one single copper thread to make one handrail. Another for the second one. Glued with CA. I now am working on the antenna dish at the back of the base block.
Up next will be the ball-shaped docking node and the solar arrays.
More pictures after the jump.
|If you look closely you can just read "Mir" and "CCCP" at the aft end of the module.|
|The pink paper around the brass tube is what I used for rolling the solid cores.|
|It is quite small.|
|Hand rail one!|
