One downside I've noticed with spraying is it stirs up the cat hair lying dormant in the room causing me to get more than the usual quantities of hair in the paint.

Mind you I can safely say that all the models I have built since taking up the hobby again will have added cat hair somewhere on them   ;D ;D

I am still finding cat hair from my past feline friends years after they have all departed for greener pastures.  A subtle reminder of furry friends that are long gone but still missed.

Hi all,

Nearly there ......



The fans are complete and ready for installation, painting is done, I decided to leave the Command Module white painting it another colour would just look wrong.

Just problems with the custom decals to sort out.

Thanks for looking.......

That looks great! It wouldn't be out of place in Disney's "Magic Highway U.S.A." :

All the fans pivot individually

Had a real blast with this one, I love it when a non plan comes together.

That is much larger than I had imagined now that you have included a figure and vehicle to compare it with.

Same here but, thinking about it, it should have been obvious with the computer screen dimensions & height above the bottom of the box.
