    I've decided to build the Apollo-Soyuz from the free Russian site...I have no idea at what scale I'm building:???: ...."small" I would say! I recolored and relined some of it and cleaned it up a bit...but it is built pretty much as it comes over the intenet...I am having fun building this little kit!:yep:

    Great looking build, Bob!

    I don't think the Soyuz model is up on the Moonport site yet...still patiently waiting.

    If anyone has the link for this, I would love to see it. Was it the JT site?

    Cheers!

    By the way ...as Carl pointed out to me...the Russian Space thing in this little kit is not a Soyuz capsule...but a "Space Probe"!.....FYI....you need to use Carls' "Moonport" Soyuz! ...might as well use the Docking Port and the Apollo Capsule and Command Module as well...they are quite Wonderful.... amazing detail as well!:yep:

    Thanks, Bob!

    Last time I checked a few weeks ago, it was just a few pages, but looks to me like it's a complete design now...guess I'll find out once I start to build her.:grin:

    By the way, it just amazes me how quickly Carl is publishing all of his designs, truly amazing work. Thanks again, Carl!

    If you do ever find the link to that model you are building, Bob, I would love to check it out.

    Cheers!

    It might be from this site:
    http://www.jt-museum.narod.ru/air.htm

    All sorts of earlier paper space models under the category found at the bottom of the left side of the page entitled: Космические аппараты

    The Apollo model is the one dated "7/1974", and the Molinya is the one dated "4-5/1992".

    Let me know if I am wrong...and beware, they are very slow downloads. What I did was open the file as a new window (it's a "htm" file link, so I could access it only by opening it up first as a new window) and then save the picture from the new page as a graphic file.

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers!

    Hi Airbob!
    It's not a Mir. It is Saljut-6 space station with docked Sojuz and Progress spaceships (see Космические аппараты 11/1992).
