Does anyone know what those 4 sticks are attached to near the Eagle engine bells? At first I thought they were attached under the bells but they look as if they're attached to some other parts which are attached to the Saturn V part.

I don't know if any of you chaps are still out there but just another update about this. I've pretty much finished the main body. I've stuck the shuttle boosters flush with the main body [ unlike the original ] which I think looks better but was a bit of a job. Plus primed it.

I'm not going for an exact copy to give my self a bit of leeway [ I'm calling this a K47B ] but I'm still trying to get it as close as possible where I can. I've aso got 3 of the 4 shuttle rocket tanks pretty much finished apart from some small details so I need one more shuttle kit.

Sorry I haven't posted any photo's yet but I am working on it [ trying to figure my old digital camera out is a bit of an enigma and it's only recently I've started looking at it even though I've had it for years ].

Great to see you're still around. Hopefully it won't be long before I post some pics but this old camera's not exactly the best and I've had to uninstall it and re-install it twice. I'll definitely be posting them though so stay tuned.

Ok I know it's not a very good photo but here's the first pic chaps. Apologies for the delay in posting pics but I haven't uploaded many photos before and I've got an old digital camera which has been hanging round for years and after much hassle I've only just figured how to upload as I kept getting invalid file [ until I had the bright idea of changing the file to a jpeg ]. More to come and hopefully the quality will improve.

Another one. I've added the bar but obviously this will include the axle detail etc.

Ok thought I'd give the main body a light dusting of white primer. I might go for a bit of a pre-shaded look or possibly spray it completely white but paint/weather the rib detailing etc with a grey wash - or a bit both. When I've decided I'll then start spraying the back of the tanks white ready for attachment to the main body.
