    There is a neat part that embraces one end of the arm, so it can be attached to the payload bay.

    Shuttle Cargo Bay Interior and Doors

    Muchas Gracias, Gerardo,

    That is one good-looking 'Endeavour' shuttle! Amazing work on the interior and cargo load as well as the Canadarm! Simply stunning and beautiful!

    Re. your hinge method: That is a really neat way of solving the hinge problem - and one that probably will hold together for many openings of the cargo bay doors.

    Smart!
    All the best,
    Bengt :D

    alfonso you one gifted co-shuttle addict.

    good thing i found yer site, here i am,building a stack plus trying to find an accurate(and legal) way to resize jaybat's X-71 to fit on your stack.

    i realized that the 71's nose sits higher than the SRB's.

    i tried resizing it to 150%, but it it out of the borders of my 8.5x11 card.
