Thanks dudes.

It'll be as the on-orbit configuration, with the missing panel and shield. Also my customer ordered the RealSpaceModels 1/48 Apollo. Wouldn't be complete without it!

Goodies are supposed to start arriving Friday. :)

Same scale as this below, but with more detail, and the one I'm building will be mounted in a vertical manner on a 1/2" threaded rod.

Are you using the David Weeks drawings as reference. They are really quite detailed and accurate.

Thanks again! Yeah, I have the drawings by David Weeks. They're excellent.

Wow, this ought to be good. I've always wanted a Skylab but have never tried to tackle it. Maybe someday.

With this thread as inspiration....
