I'm thinking that with the addition of a couple of engine nacelles, the Proteus could become a snazzy little Star Trek run about...

There is a 1/8 scale model from Monsters In Motion:

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

to paraphrase Holy Grail
I already got one...


This is the rather spectactular Stargazer Models 1/144 resin kit.. no doubt the Moebius may be more cost effective.
Either way it is an impressive ship

so while I have the brag book open, this is some extra work I put in to light up the pod bay and a pod

WOW!!! Nice build!!  I read up on some of the reviews and I am curious as to what you used to build the internal spine for the spine?

Did you also build the 1/144 Aries 1-B and Orion Spaceplane?

I am tempted to do this alternate version:




The leftover parts would also find definite uses.

To sort of hijack this whats new thread a bit, I used brass tube for the spine, but the model on the "stand" is supported at the Crew module and the propulsion unit,  so really there is no real engineering genius.

As to the last bit.. yes and yes.. both fantastic, but Stargazer himself is a good friend of mine and I did get both kits at a "mates rates" price, however the research that has gone into each and the quality of the kits is excellent. I will post up some pix of my 2001 stuff each in the appropriate forum

And I do like the alternative option GTX posted as well

Well, as large radiators they would.  Look at the thermal control system radiators on the ISS (I'm intimately familiar with the external thermal control systems on it).

So very tempted to build on air-launched first stage as described in Clarke's novel.  Base the first stage on some of the British hypersonic research aircraft proposals.
