    During the last weeks I have built Surfdukes 1/32 ASTP Soyuz (Rev. 1). There is no instruction, so I could only use the model pages 21 and 22 to find out the correct positions of all those parts. I hope everything is in the right place now.

    It's a beautiful, clean build, and it looks like the ASTP Soyuz to me.

    Gents,

    I'm the guy who was writing the instruction sets for Surfduke's models. I had completed the Atlas instructions (for a flyable version of the Mercury/Atlas) and was waiting for him to give me more info to do the capsule with interior when he fell off the face of the planet last fall. I haven't heard from him since.

    I only hope that whatever he is involved in now doesn't take him too far from his areas of enjoyment.

    I miss him!

    Mike,

    :agree1: I think we all miss Carl. He gave us some very nice space models. It´s a real pity that he is not available at the moment. I am missing some instructions and revisions :yep:. And new models !?

    Gerd,

    Your "completed" photo is EXCELLENT. I had to really look at it to determine whether it was the real spacecraft.

    Great job on the model, and the photography.
