I took a hiatus from Modelling just about the time you had just printed the Instrument Panels. I come back over a Year later, & now you've completed the whole damned thing! Magnificent is all I can say; if you intend to do the Outer 1/4 Deck with the same amount of Detail, it will be something to behold.

:Bravo:

Just a quick note to say hello to all of you my friends. I was somewhat disappeared lately. Had some, well...really many, things to deal with in my life, work, family and the many other activities I try to fit in the 24 hours day with little success.
I didn't abandon the shuttle project. I am just in a little stand by but still working to complete the external shell (still working on it: see the window frame in the back of the photo) and to add some interior lighting with LED filaments I've found on the web. They appear to be the best choice to simulate the fluorescent tubes that was on the real shuttle ceiling. This is how my desktop appears just now...

I've just too little time to post updates, anyway the updates are very little. I promise to be more active as soon as I'll have consistent news to show.
See you soon! :)

The filaments look really interesting and I will remember them in case I need a strip light on something, Thanks for showing this!
Every one understands that our hobby just has to sit on the shelf when there is just not enough time in a day to do things we would like to do after we deal with those we have to do!

I hope you are detailed on how you use these filaments. They are such an efficient way to use and light up any size model. They come in so many diameters, and one LED light will brighten many filaments, which means, 4 LED's will give you virtually all the colors you need. :)

Your shuttle cockpit would make such a wonderful teaching tool for science classes, im in the hopes that you might make it availible to us at some point down the line. I would love to have a crack at it.

Yes, for sure. I promised it and I will do. I don't know when... Perhaps I should publish the interior parts as a stand alone model while I work on the outside. Stay tuned ;)

That's a HUGE undertaking. If and when you do it, it will be done. Besides your current project is quite nice too!

eagleclaw , Why not, when you can download it (from our Resource Section), download Tonino's Balilla Italian car model. It is an excellent size, and is one of the most beautiful car models I have ever seen. :)

Hi friends!
This is my first "thread recovery" after the big crash.
I carefully checked ALL the posts in this thread and replaced all the missing images.
I hope that all is now restored exactly in the same form it was before.
Please let me know if you see something strange or a broken link.

Hope you still enjoy this build chronicle
