Default I actually finished something!

All,

Below is a link to some photos I took of the 1/48th scale scratchbuilt Deep Space 1 model I finished Friday. It's not great, but it's done and I learned a lot from it. The model is about 9 1/2" from the solar panels edges.

I created a flickr account to post the pics. (I've not used it before, so I"m sure I messed something up with that).

Have a look, and constructive comments are always welcome.

That is indeed a great job, and inspiring. I've wanted to tackle some real space probe projects, but have been a bit nervous of the wire and foils and other mediums I rarely work with. Glad to see you just went ahead and did it... and did a good job of it too.

It reminds me that I've got that 1/48 scale scratch Lunar Surveyor 1 sitting up on the shelf... the frame work completed about 10 years ago... just waiting for me to get back to him.

Its a beauty. Really nice work. Have you used gold leaf or something similar for the foil on the probe?

I just wanted to say thanks for the kind comments. I'll be taking it to a local model contest this Saturday if any of you will be at the IPMS Butch O'Hare show in Darien, IL, introduce yourself!

Tony42, the gold foil is Bare Metal foil applied to regular kitchen foil and lightly brushed with clear orange acrylic.

Again, thanks,

Best of luck at the show! I used to go to that one a lot, years ago. In fact, I entered a scratchbuilt Meta Probe there. (It was inaacurate, since I had almost no reference material & hadn't seen "Breakaway" for 20 years at that point.) Be sure to post pics afterward!

Well, for what it's worth, at the IPMS/Butch O'Hare show yesterday, I my DS-1 won a bronze in the open judging and best of catagory. There were 3 models total in the Realspace catagory. It's a bit of a weak catagory when a bronze can win the catagory. Oh well, as a long suffering Chicago Cub fan, A win's a win.
