I wonder if I'm not exaggerating... :oops:
This Kibo is far too detailled... or not?

Who said this was a complex model? :lol: :shock:

Certainly NOT exagerated.

VERY nice work, by the way ! :shock:

I'm very happy because I have now to rebuild and optimize much more my own old shuttle model! It was one of my first model for Celestia 2 or 3 years ago (don't remember!) and indeed I've gain quite some skills at this game since this time!
So as alway, less poly means more details (that's odd isn't it?), and now the windows will be much more realist... :)

The shuttle is revised. I saved quite a number of poly that will be welcome in other important missing structure of ISS. BTW, what if I put Leonardo inside the payload? Now with such config, I have no idea how they do the transshipping of the module... Does the shuttle say in sync below the station or does she dock at harmony?

Another point; I was looking at some nice shots at Human Space flight, STS 123, about the dextre module; do someone knows if it's a permanent module?

I have the response to my above questions, no need to dig this anymore.

I'm working on Dextre; seems there is a missing degree of liberty in the model from nasa (in the last articulations before hand)... Btw, just this part, 1220 poly vs 2780... ;-)

I'm done with Dextre. 5200 poly against 9900 for the Nasa model. Not bad! At a later stage of the global count, I will see to add a few more details.

Here 3 picts, in my modeler and within Celestia (global and close view); this guy is pretty huge! :shock:

Now I suppose I'll go for a Leonardo; what about a new attitude for the shuttle with the Canadarm fixed on Destiny (where Dextre is in the above shots) moving Leonardo out of the payload? Or simply Leonardo inside the payload?

FANTASTIK work, ElChristou !
:shock:

I simply can't wait to install the finished model in Celestia and to present it to my student. Simply awesome. No words actually ! 8) :shock:

If I may, I'll add my unadulterated AWE for you people here
on the CM website.

Dunno how you smart people became such great modelers,
but I'm learning a few things just watching you.

The ISS presented here is absolutely spectacular. That is
all I can say. :oops:

Guys, beside the wha how stuff (which is great for my ego, Tx again!) I hope you will take some time to eventually catch some errors or else that could be fixed before releasing...

BTW, Cham, I fear that this stuff on the old craps of config you have in classroom won't do the match... :x

Must probably yes. But I intend to buy a MacBookPro in the next 6 months. I'll use it to present Celestia in the classroom.

Heh... superb... Mac pro would be nice... one day.

Guys, if you have some time, I'm in search for good docs for Progress (almost identical as Soyuz, but...) and the arms mounted on Pirs... Anyting is welcome! ;)

Christophe, here the results of a short search:
Progress-M drawing:

a Progress Cargo Module document/images:

four nice images:

Searching for Progress and Pirs I found this very interesting document, that gives an incredible amount of data and dates for all the USSR manned missions (including a lot of very nice drawings of the various contruction stages of MIR):

Now let's go to PIRS, but less fortune here. :(
Only two images, one awful, one good (but the arm can be barely seen):

And a document/image, interesting IMO:

That's all for now, tell me what you need more.
Bye

Andrea :D
