    Been wanting to build this ever since Legal01 finalized the sizing, detailing and brought the collective efforts of other modelers to complete the entire model. With each revision, it has gotten better and more detailed.

    Now, this I am looking forward to seeing done.
    This is a project that I also want to build at some point in the (far) future! :)

    Good luck with your build, and post LOTS of photos!! ;):)

    Engines are coming together. Two down and the third is under construction. Repetitive but fun. 20150714_182122.jpg 20150714_182148.jpg

    Thanks Mate, I have been wanting to see a full build of it as well but I have only ever found bits and pieces. Hopefully I can get the whole thing done. :)

    If that is so, then you can be the first to do a full build thread for this model.
    I'll be following this .... ;)

    Thanks everyone for you support. Really appreciate it. On the F1 engine, I had done a post a while back as a separate thing. Building the engine from start to finish with Jasper's modifications. Does everyone want me to include the engine build in this thread as well?

    Wow! I just read an article where one of these was found, stored, unused. It was taken apart, and then meticulously blueprinted. A new one was made, but instead of welding, it was done with 3d printing!! With new technologies, there were able to make the engine able to be throttled. Even shut off, and then restarted, and throttled up to full power. This opens new doors for space exploration. You model Legal01 is perfect in timing, styling, and design. It is a great representation of this marvel of technology and a great homage to those who built these engines of wonder. Great job Legal01!! :):)

    I hope those links were relevant. You guys know the numbers, models numbers, who had touched what, I just don't have the Brain for that, but I sure do admire it. :)
