An awesome recovery on the missing parts!  I like how the chair came out; you didn't even miss a beat.  Keep up the great work!   :)

Right on! I agree with The Dude...nice work on replacement/fabrication!
Boldly going...

Well it was a busy day today. I finished the rare cockpit of the shuttle and got some other parts painted and working. This is such and interesting build. All these parts that move and turn it's just so much fun to build. Until my next day off. Have fun with your builds!

Well got some more work done tonight while watching the TrekWorks Hangout. You guys are a blast! Finished the the shuttle cockpit with decals and astronauts. Painted the inside of the cargo bay and attached the wings. Tomorrow I hope to finish off the engines and get the rest of the shuttle together. This shuttle is so detailed compared to the  1/144 Revell. The panel lines that are all over the shuttle are just so nice. This shuttle is by far superior to the Revell. I wish they just made the shuttle to build. I am also fighting the urge to paint this shuttle the with the normal silver and black underside. But when this combines with the Eagle Lander the silver abd black underside may look silly which is why they recommend it in all white.

Thanks guys! Oh yeah. In order to get the astronauts to fit in their seat, you will need to cut of their feet.

I did a little more work on the shuttles engines then I took a break from working on the shuttle and started on the eagle module. The shuttles engines detach a from the shuttle and attach on the back of the eagle module and the shuttles small engines rotate and face the front of the shuttle. I also painted a few missiles that come in and out of the rare of the eagle module.
