t would be nice, but you just said it, and that's so much more personal, and better IMHO. :)

Thank You Revell-Fan an micahrogers for the kinh words and encouragenets.

Thank You Zathros for the honor doing my thread "STICKY".

Only a small updating and a little detour.

Last Sunday I followed the entire docking maneuver of the Dragon 2 capsule with the Space Station: a complicated ballet with a splendid ending. So I took a short break and I made the model that I downloaded from the website of Alfonso X Moreno. A simple model that makes perfectly the aspect of the real.
Meanwhile work on the supports continues ...

Best, Nando :)

This kind of repeatability takes talent!! :) Does Ken know people here want to buy his model? Maybe you could let him know? :)

Still other details for the after compartment. With these I completed the tanks:
In the first picture
in the first row four identical tanks (two for fuel and two for the oxidant) and the waste water tank
In the second two spherical tanks for the helium and the potable water tank

A detail of the two helium tanks

and all together in the palm of my hand to better render the proportions.

The two little boys gave me a hard time. :headbange:

Best, Nando :)
