    I know I'm a bit late, but regarding the cabin windows / interior I have a suggestion...

    I would cut the windows out, glaze them with clear plastic, then place a background picture behind the glazing, either the window panels you cut out, or something else you whip up yourself in a graphic program.

    it would look similar to what you have now, but with the aded etail of a reflection coming from the "glass".

    Tracks

    I started work on the tracks. I went ahead and actually added the shoe serial numbers to each one.:twisted:
    There's alot of cutting and folding to complete one track but the end result should be well worth it.

    Until next time...........

    Cleat serial numbers?

    Just incase one falls off and you have to replace it exactly?

    I kinda think they are all the same.....

    Well done George,

    Each Cleat (actually called a shoe) has it's own individual number, not sure if they call them serial numbers or not. I believe it's to track how long each has been in service and at what point it's due for replacement.
    Although some have been in service since the 60's!

    Let's hope one never falls off. :mrgreen:

    Hi George,

    Wow! That's a really small crawler. Can't wait to see how you fold the little shoes for this one!

    My 2 cents: If you do decide to build an actual interior for the cabins, the Apollo era vs the Shuttle era are quite different. Based on the 2-podium configuration shown on the kit's graphics, this one is for Apollo. I'm sure you already knew that - I just put this in your thread for others who may not realize this.

    Nice Job!
