    This is my build of Retired-For-Now's MSL-better known as "Curiosity". I believe this is the longest a paper model has taken me to complete, as I started back in January and finished last night.

    Here it is on "Mars", which is actually a patch of dirt near my dad's body shop that I leveled off with a garden hoe.

    I was hoping you would post your masterpiece here. I really thought that was a NASA picture, but could not figure how they took it!

    VERY nicely done! I like the exploration setting, though it might be a bit large if you have to move the diorama ...

    Thank you,
