As a result of placing the Kibo Exposed Facility Payloads (Exposed Facility) earlier , I have also added this module also to our model of the ISS!
Please take a look at a small page on how I made this module.
The model is made for the AstroLab public observatory near Ieper, Belgium.

Hello, welcome!

I'm not anymore in scale modeling since a long time now but from my experience I think you could achieve a much detailed model at 1/25... Of course all is question of time (and money if you get payed for it)... Now perhaps the final viewing distance do not need a too detailed model?

Perso I think some nice 3D models manipulated via specific systems are now ideal for museographic purpose; imagine a huge screen with a Celestia like soft and a simple command desk to manipulate the models. This kind of system can give to the public a far more interesting overview of this kind of structure. One could even write some specific script to focus on details, create a soundtrack with comments etc...

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.

Franky,

your solar observatory site and the results obtained over such a long period are quite impresssive! I am also an amateur astronomer (and professional (astro) physicist) since decades...

Friday 4 December the maquette was inaugurated by nobody less than candidate astronaut Vladimir Pletzer.
