    Missiles are a great subject, how no one have thought about that before?

    Congrats on another great model, Nothing...

    i've always been fascinated by missiles especially the russian sams. they have played a major role in most of the modern wars from tyhe 60's onward. once i complete this one i think im going to do the Sa3 next. ran across a picture of a dual Sa3 mount on a t-55 chasis.

    ..and Scott, I built it some time ago. Beautiful model that gives a good impression of the original one. :thumb:

    I always was interested in Guideline and its history that extends for all cold war and beyond.

    But, Nothing, You are doing a wonderful model and by now You are a
    Metasquoia master. :eek: I hope you complete the model so we can built it.

    Here a link for more references if You need... :rolleyes:

    Best Nando :wave:

    Nando, that's my model? Looks good, Thanks for showing it! I might've been farther along with it (and it's launcher), but it was among numerous designs I lost in my disk crash. Fortunately, I do still have an early stage drawing on another computer, not to mention that I was able to download my own samples I posted in the other thread.

    Nothing, have you seen this site?; http://www.primeportal.net/artillery/de_craecker/gaz_sa-2_walk_1.htm

    It was a great help in adding (now lost) details to my version. Nando's reference site is another one I missed, too.

    Yes, It's the Yours. It's a simple model and I had fun building it.
    I don't know which improvements are you planning, but, if I can, I'd like to suggest to you two minor design adjustments.

    The first one is on the forward end: You did it with one conic segment, but doing it with two segments, it could match better to the form of the real one.

    The second one is about the supports that join the first with the second stage. I think that they are too weak. It's better, may be, to do them with small tubular or square supports, like them that nothing are doing.
    I hope that You understand my poor english.

    BTW my compliment for Your model, Scott, and Nothing, I can't wait to see your progress.

    Best, Nando :thumb:

    Nando, I agree with you on the changes needed. I didn't notice the forward end needed to be 2 sections, but now that I compared mine to Nothing's, I see what you mean. I wasn't satisfied with the attachment point of the 2 stages, either. My original build has already started to come apart at that point. I'm not sure how soon I'll make any changes, though. Nothing's model looks a lot better to me than mine does (proper colors and markings help quite a bit!).
