  1. Ha, Alabama is the worst place on earth when it comes to weather. One day it will be 100 degrees Fahrenheit (I don't know what that would be in Celsius), the next it's 30 degrees out and raining! No snow though, so Christmas is always a little boring.
  2. That parachute looks great! one thing you maybe could add to the IVAs would be space suits in storage. Maybe in the Soyuz OM you could put a suit, maybe without the helmet or gloves attached to it?
  3. Yeah, I don't know if you've ever seen the inside of a Russian style station module, but they do look closer to the middle Salyut part. The big part at the rear of the station looks the worst to me, partly because it is oriented incorrectly. The "ceiling" of the module should be on one of the sides of the module, and the "floor" should be on the opposite side. If you still don't understand, here is a link to a video tour of the ISS. The Russian segment is towards the end of the video, but it gives you a good look at both the DOS and FGB style modules, as well as the Soyuz OM and ATV. http://youtu.be/afBm0Dpfj_k
  4. Yes, many of the IVAs need redoing. The Soyuz OM has always bugged me because there are no hatches leading to the descent module or to the docking mechanism. Most of the IVAs, especially the station parts, appear too empty, and just don't give the appearance of a cluttered space station. If Beale could add some Velcro patches, some bags attached to the walls, maybe some sticky notes placed here and there, and they would be great!
  5. I haven't been able to find much info about the CARV, but I don't think it was intended to carry passengers. From what I can tell, it is similar to the Dragon V1, but much bigger.
  6. At least ATV will live on in the form of the Orion Service Module!
  7. The ATV had so many possibilities, it's a shame they cancelled the program after only five flights. I will be sad to see Georges Lemaitre leave the ISS next month. But of all the proposals for ATV, the CARV concept was the best. I hope you can make it someday!
  8. Since you're redoing the ATV, have you ever heard of this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATV_CARV.JPG It was a proposal to make a version of the ATV that can return large amounts of cargo to Earth in a return capsule instead of the pressurized compartment on standard ATVs. It could even be modified to dock at the US segment of the ISS so it could transfer International Standard Payload Racks to the station.
  9. Thanks! It looks pretty nice, I'll give it a try when it comes out. Zenit looks really nice too.
  10. I was referring to the Dragon V1 anyway. As for the stockalike Dragon V2, I had not heard of this. I will certainly check out out!
  11. Have you considered making the Dragon spacecraft? After all, Cygnus is in the pack, so why not add the other commercial spacecraft that services the ISS?
