More photos below with some details of the last leg of the build.
|Lots of small parts. That's what you get in 1/300.|
|The main parts of a landing leg laid out.|
|The rods were made from brass rod, primed and painted anthracite.|
|Nine little Merlins that did an awesome job, three of which did a little more awesome one, and one of those that did a really great job.|
|X marks the spot.|
|I added some fiberfill (normally used for insulation in winter coats etc.) and ripped it a bit in a shape that looked like the circle of dust the middle engine kicked up while landing.|
|Another piece of fiberfill was used as exhaust plume.|
Well, that' s that! Now it's back again to the giant N1, where the second stage awaits completion.
Thanks for watching!
