  1. Well, before seeing these awesome replicas I would have said that my 737 was pretty much done, but now after flying on a 737-800 during my vacation a few weeks ago I feel inspired to go back and redo a few things. Also, I really wouldn't mind (in fact I would be interested) if you went ahead and made a 737, since there aren't that many 1:1 scale replicas of it in the first place.
  2. Thank you! Yes, the frustration I've had with getting all the fuel cells in place to look like a Saturn V is what you would've expected, from me yelling at my computer to pulling my hair out, but the end result is satisfying and worth the frustration. This project shouldn't have taken that long, considering there were about three major phases it went through; the first being a barebone Saturn V, meaning that each stage only had the correct amount of engines, and that's it. No distinct shape, nothing. Then the second phase was to get a more accurate LM and get the Saturn V body shape down, and
  3. A replica that I've been working on for over 3 years now, the title and images pretty much explain themselves. 3 years of working on this project on and off due to frustrations with the craft and a little thing called "life", it is ready to be released, and at an appropriate time, too. Since I'm sure no one wants to hear me ramble on, lets get to it.

  4. Update on my Boeing 737-(800): finished wings and engines, horizontal and vertical stabilizers, attempt to size down cockpit window while keeping its shape, added (I believe) the correct number of passenger windows She flies, but like a brick. Turning is slow and painful, but doing barrel rolls is no problem. I had no other choice but to make a custom nacelle for the Boeing 737 in order to recreate that distinct flat bottom. Not exactly sure if I understand your question, but the fan blades are static and display-only, and the jet itself is
  5. Yes it is! I wasn't sure if the windows are disproportionate or if that is just me trying to be a perfectionist.
  6. Can anyone guess this plane? Wing isn't completely finished yet, as you can see. Not sure what to think of them, not as clean as I would like and I still need to add flaps, spoilers, and ailerons. Thoughts?
  7. Close to finishing a 1:1 replica of the famous Soyuz-FG launcher and the Soyuz MS spacecraft. My previous Soyuz was disproportional and not to scale which led me to create a replica that I am satisfied with. I'm starting to really like the look and finish that fuel cells give to the vehicles I make; but working with them is another story. Just look at my Saturn V (another sneak peek): Every stripe you see here is all fuel cells.
  8. No, please, I always welcome constructive criticism, thanks for your input. I knew that the wings and vert. stabilizers seemed to be a bit wonky in terms of proportion, that confirms my suspicion. As for the canopy, for me personally the only reason I even use those fuel tanks is you can get a decent outline of what the canopy should look like without going too part crazy (dear god those solar panels).
  9. Sneak peek on another ~1:1 scale plane. In case you didn't look at the title, its a McDonnell Douglas F-15 (most likely C variant).
  10. Excellent! I love the flags and the detail you put into the S-IC and S-II with the corrugation between the fuel tanks where they would have been on the actual Saturn V, is that done by radiators?
  11. Other projects I've been working on.. 1.5 introduced a remodeled mk1 capsule, so I rebuilt my Mercury Redstone and Atlas (not pictured). A special update is also shown in the spoiler below
  12. Ending yet another long absence from posting with updates on my 1:1 F-16, which was posted a little over a year ago if I remember correctly. And after seeing many aircraft builders change from using the solar panel cockpit to a more part-efficient style and sculpting more accurate noses of aircraft with landing gear, I decided to "convert" over and start with the perfect craft to practice; the F-16. There are a few spots that need to be cleaned up (specifically the air intake) and hopefully I will be able to post more updates in the future on this craft and a few other pro
  13. Basically it's an even simpler design of yours since I'm a little over budget on parts - my current Saturn V has 1500 parts (going for visuals and function more than practicality). Anyways, the xenon containers are used to represent the turbine exhaust manifold similar to yours, part of the thrust chamber used the oscar-b tanks, and the heat exchanger used the mono propellant tanks, shown below. Inside the fairing are 5 KS-25 engines, producing a total thrust of 4682.54 kN per F-1 engine All F-1s are mounted and ready for launch (notice that the fairing base is clipped in)
