So today I had a couple of hours of spare time and I had an idea. I first wanted to do it the simple way but that apparently is not the way to go with the N1. So, I cut off about 45mm of width from the piece I printed earlier, which was way too large. I thought it was a waste to throw it all away so now what we're going to do is this:
There is going to be a 4,5 cm wide window all the way up to the escape tower, so you can see what is inside. I also cut open the inner fairings for the Blok D and LK to be shown.
In the copy shop I bought some transparent sheets to go behind the cut-out part of the outer fairing and keep the innards visible.
|This is what I cut off from the first part of the fairing.|
|Using glass fibre tape I provided the insides of the inner fairing with some structure.|
|I don't know how much will remain visible after adding the spacecraft inside but it looks better anyway.|
|Stacked it already is quite nice. The one below will house the Blok D part, the LK lander will be in the sivery striped part on top.|
|I also made a littler window in the base part which holds the fourth stage so you can still see the engine bell.|
|All together, awaiting contents.|
Next is the reconstruction of the Blok D and a start with the LK lander.
Today I got this far but soon I hope to show you more.
See you soon.
