There's been a bit of progress since the last update, it's still slow going, but I have identified a few more kits and am currently trying to purchase them.

However, I have had a bit of luck with one important element. (Forgive the crappy phone camera photograph.)

Cast from the BBC mould, many years ago - so this should help the project on a bit.

Currently it's covered in a fair amount of filth, so I've been out in the freezing cold garden, giving it a bit of a wash down. I have five more to go, so I think I'll leave it until the warmer months.

Mind you, I'll probably clean up the nicest one (with the least filth on it) and then mould it up to cast out 6 new ones.

So, that's me sorted for the main hull then. Result!

o_Oo_OGee-whiz mate!! What a lucky bloke you are; getting the original from the Beeb:cool::cool: That'll cut your work by...half:p
Cheers, it will ease the load incredibly, though it's just a cast from their moulds - but it's as close to the original that I'll ever get. I was worrying before about the size of this, now that it's here, the worry grows even more. I need to find somewhere to make this as it really won't fit in my "workshop" space.

Same here, the Missus was horrified when she learned that my 2001 Space Station had to be 7' in circumference :lol: Studio Scale is great (for us) but, in terms of space, can be challenging; during construction and after construction:p

This one won't be as wide as your station, it's a little under that at 6' - still, that's quite big for a model being made in your home, rather than a studio workshop. The "stupid" things we do, eh? But it's all part of the fun, right? At least that's what I like to tell myself.
