Wow! Very few people scratch build these days, which is a pity. Very few people in any day tackled such an enormous project. Well done!

Extraordinary! Well done! Will you keep it in the upper room when finished, or will it do on permanant display in a museum?

I have the patience, just not the time.

Then again, how I choose to spend my time is a reflection of my patience level, so perhas I don't have the patience after all...

I did when I was a kid, though, building Estes rockets and RC aircraft.

Mr Dubois...hello...
Your ISS is simply awe-inspiring. You have enriched the art of 'modelling'.
We should take a leaf from you and try something similar. Something the youngster visiting you and the musuem / observatory would definitely be inspired to do.

....Belgian chocolate. And now this! :clap:

Thank you for sharing.....and a warm welcome from us at BAUT.

Today I finishd the first large solar array of the ISS!
One Solar Array contain two solar panels of 130x19cm. 8 Arrays or 16 solar panels are needed in the maquette.
You will find some pictures at :

I've had a look at some of your construction techniques, Franky, and it's my opinion that regrettably this installation will never make it to orbit in one piece. It's going to be a bit cramped, too. Nice try, though.
seriously, great build, Maestro

Nice to see ATV attached, btw. Is HTV (http://www.bautforum.com/space-exploration/43644-h-ii-transfer-vehicle.html) planned yet? :)

ETA: I love seeing the progress on this, and with the distances involved it's great to look forward to one time seeing this model for real.. it just might happen :)
