    Landing bay painted and secured into the plug. Plug is washed with a grey, back is missing, since this end will be fitted with a rod (electrical and support for the model's footing).

    Well, after 4 weeks of absence, I built the base for the entire space station. It's now free standing. The base will be, later, painted in black.

    Very strong indeed Monsieur Tox. Galvanized rod (50" long) to hold the station (already 22 pounds).

    Just a quick add-on: the cones for the modules are being built as we speak...lots of work, as usual...slowly getting there

    Well, that cone is built, painted (I'll wait before weathering it; I have a few details to affix: the ladders on the side of the bridge struts unit and the air units on the spokes)...but enough talkin', here are the pics.

    Well, the "ladders" are on and the "air units" (64 of them) are on the spokes. The only thing to do is to build the conical ends of the spokes (those parts plugged in the outer rim) and I'll consider the first half of the station done ( the plug containing the landing bay, the module, the cone, 4 spokes and all the greeblies).

    That is too cool! May I ask what you are using to reference this build? Are the greeblies random or did you ID the parts from the original?
