Congratulations Rob, on a great achievement. I too echo the praised of the others on your skill and talent.


As to display ideas is there a science or history or some such museum in your area? Also, a clear acrylic display cover would be worth the money- regardless where your piece is displayed.

Nice build! You'll definitely want to cover it with some sort of clear plastic case. No point in letting that beautiful model get all dusty and dingy.

Congratulations on your granddaughter, too!

Sorry about the late reply here, but I missed your final post or two and having followed this since the beginning just wanted to add my YesYesYes to all the others.

What a heck of a piece of work, Rob.

Unbelievable work, I have no words. 
Try getting in touch with NASA in Houston or the Cape. I bet they can find a place for it.
That really needs to be shown off man.
