Ariane 5 1/96, pt. 6

Almost done with the central core of the Ariane.
Now all the fuel lines and electrical ducts are there. Today was a lot of micro- modelling. 
Little blocks and bands for the piping.
 



After placing the pipelines on their spot, I temporarily kept them in place with two elastic bands. 








Those two cardboard tubes are from aluminium kitchen foil. They have almost exactly the right length and cross section for the EAP's. So that's what they will be soon. They also are very very sturdy. More than three times the thickness of toilet rolls. So they are able to carry the rocket. Which is what I intend them to do.
That will be for the next time.
For now, this is it, have a great rest of the weekend and be nice.
