    LHVCC has posted the marvelous 1/100 Energia-Buran that appeared in pix elsewhere on this board:

    Oops! I probably shoulda looked at the .pdf file before posting. The model includes only the Energiya launch vehicle. I've heard the Buran is still to come.

    I have been chatting with Leo the designer and I believe that the Buran is available but for some reason its not on the lhvcc site, I am sure it will be sorted soon though.

    Fantastic looking model.

    There was or is a discussion that was going on concerning the buran.

    It may be of some interest to you.

    OK...NOW the Buran is posted. Scale for both orbiter and launch vehicle is 1/96, not 1/100 as I previously posted. "Poyekhali!"

    Hope the Polyus to match is next (the large payload that says "MIR-2" in Cyrillic that's in some of the pics). I've always wanted my very own Soviet space-based weapons platform! :grin:

    I downloaded Buran and Energia from LHVCC site. All pages print just fine except sheet 8 ("Page 7") of the Energia. I've tried everything and the page just hangs my printer. Corrupted file? Any ideas, solutions?

    I solved the problem. I imported the page into Photoshop and printed it from there. If you do this, note that the default resolution for PDFs is 72ppi. I increased it to 200 ppi and got a nice, clean copy.

    No worries,
