It's an old kit from Monogram. First issued in 1959, re-issued in 1969 (my kit). 1:48.
Was a Von Braun staff's project for an orbital ship to act as a shuttle from earth rocketships to space station.
Internal was empty, so i scratbuilt it. Modified pilot too. Look at the 'zero gravity' monitor...  :lol:






The finished spaceship. Many decals from scrapbox.









Was a great future...  :rolleyes:

Nicely done.  The interior mods & painting look good.

I've got one of these kits in my stash and still have to figure out how I want to build it.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

Been watching this someplace else.  Came out great.

I also have one in the stash but it fluctuates between the sale pile and build pile.
