    Hi underwoodl06,
    I think what you are seeing are the three tail service masts, there are actually four hold down arms.

    hmmm....so if those are the TSM's then the HDP's must be the four pedistal like posts under the Saturn V?

    and I thought there were four TSM's...

    Water Supply

    Hey Guys,

    Tonight I was able to install the fogging & umbilical arm cooling pipe (no brackets yet). I have no idea how I'm going to construct the other three (waste, domestic water, vent), at 4" diameter in real life it's going to be a challenge even at 1:60 (about 1/16th of an inch) wall1

    Until next time,
    George

    Milkstool

    Hi Guys,

    I started work on the Milkstool. I got lazy and used paper straws for the structure instead of rolling all the tubes like I did for the LUT, they work out to be very close to the correct diameter. Once complete, I'll paint it to match the gray I'll be painting on the first level of the LUT. Enough coats should hide the spiral pattern in the straws.

    How I'm going about building the Milkstool is to first build two sides (lets say side 1 and 3) flat on the table. Side 1 will receive the horizontal pieces making up sides 2 and 4. Finally, I'll attach the per -assembled side 3 completing the structure. Later I'll attach the gussets and diagonal pieces.

    Milkstool main structure

    The Milkstool main structure went together much quicker then I had anticipated. Well, here it is............

    After looking at a while I think the straws are too small in diameter.wall1

    George,

    Your Milkstool looks great.

    And paper straws...who would have thought.

    Well I thought I was saving time but now realize that was a mistake. Here's a pic of a size tube which should have been used, it was rolled.

    Milkstool V2

    Well as far as the Milkstool goes, the structure was placed on the platform which is when I noticed the smaller diameter tubes looked funny, so I've started V2.0. :)

    Should be finished in a few hours.

    Version 2

    Ok, I've got the structure of version 2 complete. I think it looks better with the beefier leg tubes.

    The quality on this build is amazing. Put it on a path in your garden, with a nice blue sky in the background, this would look like the real thing. Amazing.

    structure progress

    Hi Guys,

    The main structure is complete for the most part.....time to move onto the upper section which I'm sure will not go as quickly.

    Big Saturn LUT Poster

    That´s a beauty, Wayne,

    It must look really impressive on the wall next to your models. I think I will try something similar, now that I have color-enhanced some of the photos.
    Thanks, George, for this icredible find!

    All the best,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Small Update

    Hi Guys,

    Just a small update. I scratch built the platforms which were installed on side 1 of the LUT at various levels. I was tempted to cut out all the gray areas, but upon testing one it left the part too flimsy, so I guess I'll leave it solid. My other option is to print it on clear deleting out the gray areas.

    LOX LH2 Bracket

    Hi Guys,

    Big surprise here, I've been adding MORE details with the installation of the LOX and LH2 pipe brackets. Also while looking over the LUT drawings I noticed the installation of a Fire Hose Box located at the base on both sides, so I designed one up. The drawings indicated it's installation on the inside but photos revealed it was actually installed on the outside. I'm not 100% sure what was painted on it, I do know it said "Fire Hose" but there was additional writing which can not be made out in the photos I have. I guess it can always be added at a later date if I discover what it said.

    Until next time............
    George

    Hi I just signed up. Awesome work!. I'm considering building the 1/144 scale version. Has anyone had any experience with this size? Is there a thread already?

    Side 3 piping

    Hi Guys,

    Side 3 piping is almost finished. I've got most of the brackets, pipe flanges and the yellow strips installed. I have like 5 more brackets to install but I ran out and need to print out more.

    I'm bouncing back and forth from LUT to Crawler right now....oh yeah and that "other" important project. :mrgreen:
