    Hello,
    I have posted some pictures of a 1/96 Delta IV model that I have been designing for quite some time.
    You can see the pictures here:
    http://h1.ripway.com/nickloh/models.html

    Features include separating stages, removable payload fairing, satellite models, and differing colors and CBC insulation patterns depending on the mission modeled.

    I still haven't written the instructions yet, but once I do, I will have both this and the plain-Jane Medium variants up for download.

    Comments are appreciated!

    Sincerely,
    Nick

    Hello Nick,

    Your site and your models are very well designed!

    Thank you for sharing them.

    I am looking forward to the completion of the 1/96 versions.

    I don't know what the objection to bandwidth is but I sure want to see your model. I'm building the 1/96 Delta II 7920-10C from Lansbergen. I'll post some in-process photos later today.

    I got the bandwith message, too, but I saw the photos over on the Yahoo space modelers page. The rocket is a fine piece of work. As someone who has scratchbuilt a Delta IV Heavy and a Delta IV Medium(5,4) in 1/196th, I can well attest that the geometry of the lower parts of the launch vehicles is daunting, and the thought of actually designing that on a computer is WAY beyond my meager capabilities....

    Great work, Nick. Keep it up.
  6. I downloaded your design. I will have to build it later though. I am currently building the 1/4 Merc project. Looking forward to adding this one to my collection.

    Nick, I'm looking forward to your 1/96 D-IV to keep it in scale with my other models. Thank you for doing this project. By the way, you have a very nice home, too! :)
