    I thank David for wonderful test building of Proton, and also for the noticed imperfection in the construction of fuel tanks. Before sharing of the kit I made an effort to take into account his wishes and made alterations in a final version.

    Allow me to jump in and say this is one fine model, and I think you guys will have a great time with it. It is very well designed and engineered, the parts breakdown is very sensible and there isn't anything that would give the average modeler any trouble. I enjoyed building it, and it builds into an impressive model. I stuck a few photos of my build in my photo gallery here.

    Thank you Leo. It is wonderful to have free access to models from both sides of the space race.

    This Proton is great! I'll get to it just as soon as I finish the model I'm working on.
    So what's next? Are you taking requests...? ;)

    Leo,
    I would love to have the Venera, and I don't believe it's ever been modeled, in paper or plastic (except by scratchbuilders). It's facinated me since I was a kid, and I've always been amazed anyone could build something to survive Venus's surface.
    As amazing as your models have turned out, I just had to throw it out there for consideration. It's one of Russia's most accomplished series of spacecraft, and something even us poor Americans never attempted! :)
    Keep up the great work!
