"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

John F. Kennedy, September 12, 1962



               This morning I got up and decided this kit would be the next built from my stash. As you can see the basic build has gone well. Even though I have bought a few aftermarket update sets for this, I can’t say I’m overly impressed with their quality and one of the internal pressure tank parts I believe is undersized and will not fit correctly into the first stage.  For that reason have decided to build the kit OOB and without any of the internals. It will be a test for me as seams are not a strong suit for me and there are a lot of long ones on this kit.

Looks good so far. I would be having nightmares about masking the black pattern over those corrugated conical sections.

Great start on a fondly-remembered old kit (which I, too, have lurking in the 'stash.')

BTW...that has to be among the most orderly work areas I've ever seen. Big Smile

Thanks, guys. I assure you, whilst most things have a place, it ain’t that orderly. I just have a rule that the work bench must be cleared when I start a new project.
