Thats looking really nice indeed.

Good info as well on the rocket colour. That is interesting what you say about people painting it all white because the mistake the ice for the actual colour.

Happy Modelling

Thanks guys.

I have not attached the 4 service towers that hold the rocket in place and the 2 service towers that are used to access the top of rocket.Each of these towers has a spring dampener that needs to be installed and there are 2 umbilical towers to still install on the rear of the base.

I also attached the safety fences to the base.I left these off until now to avoid knocking them off whilst i was attaching the towers.

The next step is to add the second umbilical tower and the dampeners/actuators to the 4 towers holding thew rocket in place and I am done.

Stunning build Carl.

Cool Cool Cool Cool

When complete can you lower all/some of the tower sections to show the rocket or are they fixed in position?
