    I have my own space program, run by me in 1/62 scale. I have talked about it elsewhere, but I am, by this current thread, invinting any owners of their own space programs to contact me.
    My models are made mainly by papercard, but I managed to use foam, toothpicks and any other materials suitable for building the desired parts of a given model.
    My astronauts are made of epoxi resin, and they average 27.5 mm (little over an inch) tall.
    The Venus MXT-A crew transfers vehicle acts ilke Soyuz TMA, and it touchdown on the end of the mission, with a soft plastic parachute.

    Here is the NEXT (portuguese acronym for Nova Estacao para eXperimentos Tripulada, New Station for Man-tended Experiments) spacestation.
