I've noticed the spine curvature myself - hadn't noticed the command module problem though.

I do think we need to start a thread on how to disassemble this beast...for example:

how does that pod come out

how do the landing gear assemblies come out of the landing gear pods

how does the frame separate from the sub-assemblies etc

how do the thrusters come away from the pods

Of course it could be that the whole thing is glued together and it may be difficult to strip it down...

I still want to repaint mine and super-detail with Chris's decals etc.
I'd like to put weaker springs in the landing gear, replace the quad thrusters, replace all the engine bells and add a few bits of framework and plumbing where missing.

It's just a case of taking that first step in the strip-down, and I'm too 'chicken' to do it myself without someone else diving in first !

Well, the engine assembly is screwed in. There's a start. I think most is epoxied though - get the Dremel out!

Feel free to start another thread if you like.

Default Curved Spine???

This is discouraging news indeed.
If it is out just a little it will drive me f%*ing crazy! Somebody please put a straight edge up there and snap a photo or aprox the gap. UGH.
