The idea of an orbital space station was around long before the ISS made it into orbit. This model is a good example of the
classic ring or doughnut station design.  This was built from a vintage kit, right from the box, except for the addition of the
support cables which I made from plastic fishing line.

SPECIAL  FEATURES:  none
This Eaglemoss model of  CAPTAIN PROTON'S ROCKETSHIP from the Star Trek Voyager TV series is based
on the rocketship invented by Dr. Zarkov in the 1930s
Flash Gordon movie serials.
The Eaglemoss model comes fully assembled, so this was not a model building project - it was a model modification
project.  The upper half of this ship is thick cast metal, the lower half is injection molded plastic. The entire project
consisted of drilling out the portholes, filling the portholes with liquid acrylic medium, installing two (2) LEDs in the
lower half of the ship, adding color to the flight cabin windows and the tail, and mounting the model on a new, art
deco, display base (containing the power supply for the added lighting features).
The rocketship is only 5 inches long.  The art deco base reflects it's 1930s origins.
