Just finisht the Quest joint Airlock module.
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.

As a result of placing the Kibo Exposed Facility Payloads (Exposed Facility) earlier this week I have also added this module also to our model of the ISS!

You have really put a lot of detailed work into this. It would be interesting to see how it would look with a scale model of the US Space Shuttle docked to it (detachable, of course) and then with the Russian Space Shuttle.

How do you think the building of the ISS will change after all the US Space Shuttles are retired and only the Russian ship are used?

For some reason Zoolander keeps popping into my head.

"Is that a spacestation for ants?!?! It needs to be, like, 25 times bigger than that."

But very nice.

Very clever! It does look quite a bit brighter in the photograph though. Are you planning on painting it silver?
