    I get everyone when they come out, so when I finally can't move anymore, I can build them. ;)

    it's a fairly easy 0 level cantrip, Clean, followed by the the 2nd level alteration spell, Precise... but in Uhu02's case it's just plain unadulterated SKILL...

    Mr uhu02, sir I want to thank you for the inspirational models that you so expertly create and I only hope that some day I will be skilled enough to build.

    Have you seen this in the news
    "Academy Museum Buys Rare ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ Model For $344,000". It is the Aries 1B Trans-Lunar Space Shuttle. I would rather have UHU02's version more because I can afford it, and UHU02 looks better, but then again look who designed it, and you don't get the joy of building it like UHU02's model.

    I currently started the SHADO Interceptor from Uhu. Admiring his artwork which is very neat and clean and the brilliant solutions he found on some problems I will post the result of the build here.
    Thank you Uhu for your great models an

    McTschegsn, post a pic and link to the NEW thread you start under the appropriate "Science Fiction" thread. Do not post build threads here. Thanks!!

    I'd like to see that one built, I've not seen the SHADO Interceptor from UHU built yet. :)

    I just saw a build of uhu02's Aquarius landing module template on the Moson Modell Show in Hungary (dunno who is the builder .. but I'm sure I will know once it wins the gold :) ) ... and ... :jawdrop:.

    I mean I saw the pics and everything, but it doesn't make you appreciate it fully!
    I personally like to make organic shaped models figures that I can work with my fingers rather than the precise/ultra-detailed tweezers/scalpel type paper models, but I think I can appreciate the skill level that is required for this.

    Great templates and great builds! And you are an AWESOME guy for sharing. Thx!

    I'm just building that one right now and can assure that the way this model is designed is pure joy when you put every little piece of it and see that the fit is so perfect that almost no correction is necessary. I'm enjoying every second I spend on this work and, I repeat, everytime I stop and look at what is growing under my hands... no other way to say: pure joy! :D

    Same to me here building the SHADO Interceptor. I am amazed how perfect the curved parts are made. A pure joy, even if the building experience (like mine) is limited.

    As so many others have said, you are an amazing artisan uhu 02! Your models are nothing short of astounding!! I am currently building the Proteus, a long time favorite of mine from my youth. Next I will be working on the 2001 models. I am blown away by the interior you have created for the Discovery command module! Do you have any plans to make the pod bay and cockpit as well in the future (with Hal memory banks of course!)? I was also trying to locate the amazing Aries 1B and Moonbus downloads but the links aren't working. Are you going to be posting these again in the future? When I was able to access the other models I can understand why others are so protective of you and your creations. You are extremely generous for sharing you beautiful designs with us! Thank you for giving me such wondrous dreams to build!

    Well, I HAVE to put the Discovery in here, in honour of the master @uhu02
    What a fantastic model you produced, a beautiful template!
    I hope my build of it has done it justice.
    You have produced the makings of achieving a 42 year old dream for me. Without your superb paper engineering and design skills, my dream would still be a dream.

    Thank you UHU02, Thank you!!!
