Been doing some pre build research. The instructions say to line the cargo bay doors with silver foil? So I decided to check this out and yes, some of them have bright silver doors on the inside. Apparently, they are used as heat radiators...... Anyway, looks like a touch of Alclad may be called for.


This appears to be the exact ship my egg was designed on

And those silver doors

I wonder if I should use Alclad gold on the astronaut's visor?

Right, thought I had better get cracking with this one. Not going to be the most eggshausting build but could be a tad tricky getting the painting done. Definitely an eggsercise in masking and spraying.


Weirdly, it has deployed undercarriage which is a tad inappropriate for an orbiting vehicle so I will fill the holes and devise some kind of stand (egg cup?) to put it on.


The little chap looks eager to carry out his EVA eggsperiment but I have that many builds on the go, it is getting eggsasperating frying to get something finished......


So, here are the main sub assemblies and a quick dry fit of the whole thing.

This looks interesting, seems a little out of proportion, you may need to heat it up and stretch it a bit, looks like it was designed by a load of chickens.

With all the eggcitement of finishing my Waffenträger I almost forgot to post today's update on the Shuttle.


A good sanding session to blend all the parts then out with the Stynylrez black to prime some parts. Sadly it's back to work tomorrow. Had a day off to take delivery of a new router to enable a higher speed connection. So, here it is so far.

Eggcelent work so far I don't see much work in the cockpit, I do hope you're going to model the yolk, you know I think this would look nice in yellow and white.
