Thanks for the comments. This one is finished. The next one will be either a cheaper, simplified version of this one (windows will be sunken depressions in the fuselage, hatch won't be separate) or one based on the kit boxtop, with more angular surfaces.

Thanks for looking!

 Looks terrific, Frank!

SpaceLyft is even better!

Winchell Chung sent me his variant design based on the boxtop artwork, so that one's next.

That is one spicy Dorito.  :)

What about a small-ish space station where multiple Dorito's can dock and replenish supplies (just ran out of Spicy Nacho flavour), install new air filters and to exchange crews?

Work in progress ::

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

I couldn't agree more!

I do not have enough "huzzahs!" for this little beauty!

Hello,

Considering the age of the kit, your job is impressive.
