    As a result of placing the Kibo Exposed Facility Payloads (Exposed Facility) earlier this week I have also added this module also to our model of the ISS!
    Please take a look at a small page on how I made this module.
    The model is made for the AstroLab public observatory near Ieper, Belgium.

    Very cool! What reference materials are you using to base the build upon? I've thought of doing an ISS model for a while, but haven't had any effort to put forth lately.

    WOW Franky!

    Excellent work. Using the blue background really sets it off.

    Franky,
    I cleared out most of my shelves by donating the rockets/spaceprobes to the local planetarium for display. They would really like an ISS model suitable for hanging in the lobby. I'm thinking paper graphics skinning a PVC tube structure. How did you develop the graphics for yours?

    Great job! If you asked my advice, you should build a beautiful space shuttle - docked to ISS, shouldn't you? To me, a shuttle will create a great composition. Nice work! Thanks for sharing with us!:thumb:
