RE: 1:60 Apollo LUT Construction

Hallo, George,

herzlich willkommen in unserer illustren Runde! Auch wenn ich v.A. bei der fliegenden Fraktion und manchmal im Maritimen zu Hause bin, fällt mir der - bitte um Nachsicht - nahezu schon "inflationäre" Zuwachs im Bereich der Raumfahrt auf.

Zum Einen finde ich den Maßstab bemerkenswert (1:60 habe ich in diesem Zusammenhand noch nicht gesehen), zum Anderen ist das Modell RIESIG!

Ich bin auch hier schon auf den weiteren Fortschritt gespannt, wird spannend!

RE: 1:60 Apollo LUT Construction

Hallo George b,
auch von mir ein " Herzlich Willkommen bei Kartonbau.de"
Meine Frage: Ist das wirklich ein Kartonmodell? Der Maßstab ist ja gewaltig, passt da noch die Rakete drauf oder musst Du die Decke des Zimmers durchbohren :D
Beste Grüße

RE: 1:60 Apollo LUT Construction

Ja ist dieses ein Pappmodell. :) Ursprünglich war dieser Installationssatz 1/96. Skala, aber ich vergrößerte sie. 1/48. Skala war für mein Haus zu groß.

Mein Deutsches bitte entschuldigen, ich benutzen einen englischen deutschen übersetzer.

Die anderen Fotos des Aufbaus bitte genießen.

Hello Cyana,

Thank you for introducing me to this forum, also thank you to everyone for the nice comments and warm welcome.

The LUT will one day be complete when it is sitting on a beautiful crawler (hint, hint) ;)

Additional Colby Crane railing details have been added recently.

Hello George,

simply stunning !!! Are your handrails papermade, too ? From what I've seen from the 1/144 kit of DM_Productions, no handrails are included from level 80 upwards.

It's a real pleasure to follow your progress !

Hello Cyana,

Yes all the handrails are made from card stock, the openings were all individually cut out also......I'm still working on the top 9 levels. I also designed all the handrails for the stairs and added the stairs all the way to the top. As you mentioned, the kit only came with three levels of stairs ?(, I don't know why. I also edited (deleted) the "image" of the stairs on the elevator shaft. Plus so much more. :D

Hello George,

awesome !!! I guess the swingarms are movable ? Looks like those hinges are fully working ! Do you use transparent foils for the grids on the side of the swingarms ?

I'm really eager to see more - again thanks a lot for sharing your work here :)

Hello Cyana,

It's my pleasure with sharing the build. :)

Yes the swingarms do move (swing) on functioning hinges. I did not print the grids of the swingarms on transparent foil, just regular card stock.

Not much progress to report today I'm afraid, I only designed and installed swingarm gantry #3 and currently I'm working on swingarm #4.

Good morning George

It's extremely interresting to follow your activities.
Do you cut all the tiny parts by hand,
or do you use a lasermachine or a cutting plotter?

Best wishes for the final steps on your LUT

Hello Ewald,

Every piece has been cut out by hand. Although the use of a laser cutter would have been faster, I don't think it would be as fun as I would not have as many cuts on my fingers. Also, it is a good thing the LUT is red. :)

George

Hello Michael,

I purchased the kit listed below in 1:96 and then enlarged it to 1:60. Alot of additional detailing has been added to this kit, but overall it is very well designed with good fitting parts.

http://cgi.ebay.de/Apollo-Saturn-V-Launc…VQQcmdZViewItem

The Crawler is from here;
http://www.axmpaperspacescalemodels.com/…ransporter.html

Also enlarged to the scale I am working on.

I hope this helps. :)

Update

Hello,

Sorry for the late update. I have completed the installation of all the vertical cable trays and have started installing the horizontal cable trays for each floor. I am having to design each one however, it is taking me some time.
As seen in the last two photos, most will not be seen because of the ECS pipes.

George
