    That's some amazing work there.

    On the finished model, will the landing gear articulate -- and if so, will they be strong enough to hold the model up in the "gear down" position?

    I must inspect it.

    It looks very impressive. Can't wait for it to be released.

    While the engineering is superb and the landing gear obviously articulates, I'm not sure I understand from the photos whether they can lock in the "down" position and support the weight of the model.

    Those legs and engines are spectacular. I can't wait to see what the cabin holds...

    Is the interior integral to the model's structural integrity, or can it be built without the interior? As well-designed as it might be (and as much work as uhu20 has put into the innards) I'd rather just darken the windows, save time and skip the interior.

    It's paper so I am sure you can do what you want with it but that would be like displaying only the left side of "The Last Supper"

    Ok, I'll throw this out there for someone else to compute since my math stinks and the various scale converters I could find online all require you to punch in the scale first.

    A modeler on another sci-fi modeling forum said he recalls the "real" Aries 1B was 52 feet tall, or 15,849.6 mm. Uhu20's model is 136 mm tall. So what would the scale be? 1/116.5?

    And if that's the case, would that mean that if we photocopied the parts at 121 percent we could build it in 1/96th scale, and if we photocopied them at 81 percent, we'd have the model at 1/144th scale?

    And copying it at 162 percent would give us a 1/72nd-scale model?

    If someone is better at math than I am (which includes just about everybody) then I'd appreciate any corrections.

    I know Uhu20 doesn't worry about scale (and if you're as talented as he is, you don't need to) but if I'm going to build the thing, it would be nice to have it in a scale relative to my other models.
