    Does anyone know of a paper model of the LADEE spacecraft that is scheduled to be launched Friday night?

    Thank you, Zathros. I actually work at NASA but I'd like to assemble a paper model for myself and possibly one that I could give out to people, too.

    If you could offer some some detailed 3 way drawings, I am sure someone would become interested in doing such a thing. Send me a P.M. if you want to discuss if further. :)

    I'll see what I can pick up this afternoon. I'm going to a LADEE pre-launch party today at NASA and someone should have some good drawings/photos, technical info, etc. I'll let you know what I come back with!

    Awwh, this model is superb for being modeled in SketchUp!!!! I would do it if I hadn't got so many projects running at the same time..! wall1

    Try to get as many clean pictures as possible; maybe you can get an official 3D model for unfolding.

    If he comes back with the right drawings, it could make for an easier model to design. :)

    I've been thinking of doing my own LADEE soon, though I'm not sure if I can handle all the instrumentation which dots the ship D:
