    Looks pretty good to me!

    I drove throught Piqua via I-75 just last weekend. Do you ever visit the Neil Armstrong museum in Wapakaneta (sp?)? Or the Air Force Museum in Dayton? You are lucky to be so close to them.

    It has been years since I have been to the Neil Armstrong Museum. I try to go to the Air Force museum once or twice a year. I don't have a lot of time to go...

    I've just printed of the Energia, so watching this thread will be helpful.

    Looks good so far.

    Wow! That's a very ambitious project. I love Leo's models and look forward to having the time to build the Energia Buran set. Good luck. I hope you take the time to finish it. :)

    You're off to a great start! Leo's models are generally very well engineered, and I enjoyed my Energia/Buran build. It builds into a pretty impressive model.

    Now if Leo would just do a similarly scaled and detailed U.S. shuttle, ET and RSRMs....

    I have the Buran done myself, but I stalled on the Energia. It's in line to be finished soon. I also did his Polyus, and both are very well engineered, as dhanners says. The Buran is actually one of the best shuttles from any nation I've ever assembled. Keep up the good work! Leo's models are the last word when it comes to Russian spacecraft.
    (I wait with bated breath for the eventual release of a Venera model myself... :))

    Great start so far. :) To me, the Buran-Energia style is like a Sci-Fi version of the US Space Shuttle. It looks futuristic.
