    I just received, and uploaded, as set of Service Module Prelim Instructions.

    I uploaded them as Text instructions and four jpg's in a zip file.

    Scanned for viruses. (which text and jpg can't currently host anyway, but better safe than sorry, right?)

    Thanks

    Mike also has the info to work-up his, (Much better than Me), paste-up of the final instructions.

  3. Feel free to use whatever I send you. I am just happy to be of help. I am going to start another one soon as I usually build one just to practice. Now that it is done I will focust on what I want to do with the next one.

    Great beta build!

    I am working on making some minor changes, (and will publish them tonight). The Parachutes are folded in the wrong direction, (No big deal since You are doing a final build next). I am going to do some pictures of that and the Mortar can assembly. The heatshield fit is now fixed, (and the window strips are 1 pc. and thinner).

    Thanks for the build photos, (The next release will be the final).

    Thank you for your hard work, MOS95B!!

    :oops: Gee, am I embarassed. I've been relying on your site for a month or more and I don't remember thanking you. You're providing an irreplaceable service to us all by setting it up and loading files every day. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I thank you for all you've done for us... even if we didn't say so explicitly.
    I'm a good person, promise, I just forget my head is in the clouds most of the time. :)
  9. Carl a suggestion: How bout providing a printable cm without color or shading for those who want to print on chrome paper. I found that you can print on a t-shirt transfer and then iron on to the chrome paper for the transfer. I would like it personally for myself. I really appreciate all your hard work.
  10. correction: I would still like the colorless version of the CM but I tried the transfer and ended up with a film over the chrome which defeated the purpose. However, I would like to continue experimenting until I find the right method. I am open to suggestions anyone??

    White Version, Carl´s Apollo CM

    timhinds,

    In one of the first revisions, Rev6, there was a white Apollo CM (Skylab) outline. I have it saved. Do you want me to send it to you in a PM? If you´d like that, send me a PM first and I´ll send you a reply with the file.

    Bengt :D

    Edited in: I checked that I had the file and it struck me that I could post it here (a much easier option) - I hope that´s OK with Carl?:

    Outline only Version

    The last rev. of the CM has the Outline only for those who need it. Please down load it and review. Did I miss something? Let Me know and I will correct it. I have the window and hatch formers redone in one part each now too. I will publish it as soon as I can. Has anyone review the ASTP Docking Module yet? I would like some feed back on it. Lunar Rover will be finished very soon too.

    So far, the ASTP docking module looks good to me. I still have to cut the parts out to make absolutely sure, but as far as just looking at the pages, I think it's turning out great.
  15. Thanks for the white version. now do you have it in 1/32 or what is the reduction percentage?

    1:32?

    CM Rev 14, (With line only exterior), was published in 1:32. Is that what You are asking?

    Have a great day,

    Carl
  17. Carl I just printed out the 1/24 scale and it is the same as the 1/32??? Did I do something wrong? I checked my printer settings and everything is correct.

    The Mistake was.....

    It has always been 1:32nd scale. I labled it wrong in the early versions.

    You have plot/printed a 1:32nd model.

    Sorry for the mistake.
