    hi everybody!Like the S0 truss, I've simply designed them with a rule and a pen!I took dimensions on different pictures and plans and report them on a paper sheet in the scale 1/100. There are about 150 pieces to design,to cut and to glue!I spend a lot of time to build them! I ve made some pieces with microsoft word too.
    If you are interested, I can send you plans and different picture of the S1/P1 truss!
    See you!

    FINISHED!!! Finally finished KIBO Lab after two days of work. (Give you a guess at which part took longest.) The Hatch cover was custom made by me, just looking at the picture of the cover. This model is probably one of the best pieces of ISS Alfonso has released so far. Check out his site if you haven't seen it already. :D

    Looks great. This is the 1/100 scale version isn't it.

    You are Correct sir, This is the wonderful model that Alfonso has generously offered for free along with Node 2 on his site, and has graciously decided to upscale for all of us to enjoy. This model is a really great build but also challenging...(but who doesn't love a good challenge?)

    underwoodl06, I've built node1, destiny and node 2, but only the small version. I haven't had chance to start on the 1/100 scale version yet. I have also built the columbus module in 1/144, but as a payload bay version. So it's good to see picks of the larger version.

    Thank you very much for the kind words but I must say you are definetly putting :inw: Sir Alfonso's MLP and crawler to their greatest yet, and then another by George for his LUT. Two great crawlers for two great projects. :inw: Sir Alfonso has really helped us all out in different ways. George for the Crawler to carry his LUT, you for the MLP, Crawler and 117 Re-Rollout. and me with the ISS. Three awesome projects all thanks to :inw:Sir Alfonso

    Yes, this model is certainly a great addition to the shuttle collection many of us have. and I think this ISS will be one of the biggest pieces on our list when it is finally Complete..and it will also quite literally be one of the biggest.

    If anyone has built Ton's 1/96 Saturn V, the complete Truss of the Station model will be just about as tall..so start clearing room...

    I have a 1/144 plastic model of the ISS and the truss is 670mm long and the modules from the russian segment to the end of node2 is 360mm, so the 1/144 scale model is big. I don't think I have room to build the larger version.

    Edit:- and I forgot to add the arrays to the sizes.

    I hope my ceiling will be large enough to hang it from :v8:
    Might have to move my light fitting to make room......:mrgreen:

    Quick size guide.

    The plastic model in the photo is the revell 1/144 'version' of the ISS, very inaccurate, although good as a base model. Compare the length to a 600mm/24 inch metal rule. Alfonso's 1/144 ISS model is also included in the photo.

    I've stopped building the plastic kit, not accurate enough.

    I might have to break my 1/96 scale rule for this build :nope: and stay at 1/144 due to the size jawdrop

    Noooo...1/96 for you is a tradition...even if you have to leave the Arrays sepereate, you should keep the scale.
  19. paulhbell

    paulhbell Guest

    Yep, it'll be big. At 1/100 scale the truss will be approx 960mm/38".

    Edit:-I'll get a measure of the plastic arrays tomorrow.
