    Well, here's a thread for them. If no one knows what I'm talking about, look here:
    http://www.cardmodels.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2918&page=4&pp=10
    Check page 5 also.

    P.S.-Does anybody have some turbines? I'll do the turbine-shuttle-thingy if anybody does. (I'll scale them, all I need is someone to come up with a pattern, since I can't design models well.)

    Great to see the Buran thread up and running. Also that Buran Was a Beta version. Feel free too modify and enhance it the way you like. BTW, anyone working on a Kliper?

    In that case, I may make a few changes to the cockpit windows. They're the part I like the least (not that I don't like them that much, but they're one of the defining features of the buran that sets it appart from our shuttle).

    For those of you planning to design a Buran and Energia model, I recently located a file I have which gives good three views of each with nice cross sections.

    I will email the file to anyone wanting it. Just PM me with an email address that accepts graphics files...around 2 meg in size I believe.

    Thanks for the link.[​IMG] There are some excelent pix there. Also...
    I did the fix I mentioned for the cockpit windows. It should be attached to this post.

    Edit:

    The file was too large to attach, so here it is:

    Idea

    Just now I had an Idea of building the Energia as a flying model rocket
    High Flying Cards style, what do you think?

    I am thanking you very much for the Buran shuttle! This is one of my biggest paper-model-dreams come true! And I'd really appreciate an Energija!

    best wishes Michiru

    EDIT: Well, I have some trouble building the Buran. How should the disc with the engines be placed on the bay adaptor? The disc seems a bit big...

    The disc forms two cones, just cut on the white lines and roll to fit.

    See this Diagram:

    Buran, unfortunately, flew only once, unmanned. The similarities to the US Shuttle are amazing, as are the differences between the two flight vehicles.
