OK...I'm working on a new totally different scale project.

I'm afraid to even mention it but the "product development" and boiler plate model is going together so well and so easily I'm as giddy as a kid about it!

This model has never been done and has some important historical significance.

The parts are very difficult to make so I will be limited in the number I can produce. Details and documentation are probably the hardest part of this project so bare with me. This thing won't be cheap and it won't be really big.

If you guys can control yourselves I will tell you what it is...no pre-orders...no nagging or I'll turn this car around and go home!!:mad:

I have taken pics along the way on the development process so you won't be dissapointed.

But I do want some feedback!

If you guys will behave...I'll tell you.;)

Your post will let me know if you are even interested.

Careful folks! Our Sandman may be turning into his movie namesake:

Set in a trailer park filled with lots of kooky characters, The Sandman follows insomniac romance novelist Gary as he suffers through tough times, ... and tries to convince people that there's something out there stalking the residents of their small town while they sleep. Poor Gary. He's not doing so well. In fact, there is something out there murdering people in their sleep, giving them good dreams in exchange for their souls


:eek:

Oh no.... It's not a G.I. Joe strapped to an ejection seat, is it?
Wait a minute.... If it is, then that means you've gotten it to fly successfully. Hmmmm, sign me up. :D

OK, I'm going to throw out a WAG. Is it a Vostock? Am I in the right country?

So, grog is "warm" with his Russian/Soviet guess?

And you said it is not a really big model

The parts are hard to make

It has historical significance




Is this a kit of one of Korolev's GIRD rockets?

So Vostock is warm. How about an N-1 to go with our Dr. Zooch Saturn V's?

Nope. Someone else floated N-1 and got shot down. Gotta be R-7.
