    Don't worry sir, we all understand your situation... :-D

    The S-0 is really a handful detail-wise, and to think that there's still the outboard trusses to go...

    Just go with the pace that's confortable for you sir, without compromising other, more important duties :-D

    And thanks again for all of these, your efforts are unbelievable, to say the least :-D

    I agree with Hans post. The real world is more important than a hobby. No need to rush.

    Hans, the S0 build looks good. Both of you guys are doing a fantastic job.

    :D Oh I can't wait to see the 1/100 scale S0. It'll be great to start expanding outward and giving the ISS it's 'wings'. Bu as Hans says, take your time. Don't rush. There are more important priorities in this world besides a hobby. hehe perhaps you could get a model of the S6 flown with the crew during STS-119. Especially since you got the time before the mission. I dunno, just an idea

    Hans you are doing a great job on the "prototype", and yes, I'm drooling!!

    Alfonso, you know how to keep us hungry. Don't worry about getting everything ready for today... but maybe tomorrow?:twisted::twisted:

    Seriously, you are making a great project on the ISS, my friend.

    Hans, we are keeping an eye on your progresses.

    And talking about "real world" vs "hobby world" I prefer "hobby world"... ahh... if you could only live of your hobby!!

    Iss

    I normally post my AXM payloads in my own thread, but I'll drop one in here.


    This is using all Alfonso's bits. It needs the details putting on to finish it.


    Alfonso has put up a new pic of the S0 truss, looks good.

    Earlier in the year I did some work on 1/144 AXM modules scaled up to 1/100, before they were sized up.This is with ESA's ATV model and Marscenter's 1/100 modules from a few years back.
    Marscenter: Unity, PMA 1, 2 & 3, Destiny, Z1, Quest
    AXM: Harmony, Raffaello, Columbus, JEM-ELM, Kibo, Dextre & Spacelab Pallet, ESP-2

    Several years ago I made a complete Marscenter set with P6 extended, it is in storage now, and I'm less interested in trying to re-make it in one huge set. I still have to do Canadarm2, Zarya, Zvezda, Soyuz, Progress, a Shuttle and P6... the list goes on. Looking forward to the S0 release!

    I have to agree, great modules.

    It's good to see more people building the ISS. Come on guys lets have some more.

    Then more ISS builds the better and that includes the real thing as well.

    And he plans it to be finally made available within 24 hours, depending on how long the manual will be finished!
