Description

 

Here are some photos of my scratch built Sputnik.

This a simple model, that can be made in an afternoon.

Materials are easy to find: a ball, some sprue and steel wire.

The first picture depicts the material.

The following images show the Sputnik before it is painted. (antenna supports are secured with super glue and a piece of wire. On the base you can find a plastic tube that will be used to fix the model on a support.

It has been painted with Humbrol nį11, after a primer has been airbrushed. (I want it paint in black !)

The antennas are not sealed, the model is a gift for a friend, and iíll have to travel with it, so iím limited in shooting finished model.

Making this model was great fun. It has a size that is very pleasent. The main difficulty is avoiding the dust.
