Yep, I'm a sucker for punishment; building a studio scale of the Moonbus from 2001. Not accurate (as usual) but big: 80 cm long Smile
What can I say, I like Bigatures!!

Thanks BWood. Today I did the paneling on the entire model and the bottom is ready to get the turbines (6 in total). Stay tuned!

Thanks Pro-Mod...here's the Moonbus painted in grey. Couldn't do that earlier: stupid Canadian winter with cold temps. Mad

This is fantastic, Joberg!!
80cm is huge!

I'm sure you have this picture of Trumbull detailing the original, such a good photo thought i'd post here for others following your build.
Gives a good sense of the scale you're working with too.

Thanks! I was taking the same pic with my model (when finished); it will be fun to see the scale of that beast Wink

The off-white coat is applied...finishing the landing gear (the struts are completed already) and then the painting, distressing and paneling is going to start. Lots of work still Wink

This is really outstanding, Joberg!
Even, as you say, not completely accurate I completely buy into the bits that are different. They totally look like they should be that way.

Thanks...as you can see, I like to take a lot of artistic liberties with my models Wink

Alright, the struts are complete on that landing gear...another 2 to go.
I'll have to paint the squids in a different color (dark grey if I'm not mistaken).

Quite a few things remaining: the engines (6 in total), the antenna and a few decals...after that, I'll call it done Wink

Thanks! Just adding to my collection of 2001 related models and props (long way to go and lots of $$ being spent) Wink
