For the 2010 edition of the Fana'briques show (http://fanabriques.freelug.org), the stearing comity of the Fanabriques association (http://www.fanabriques.fr) has decided to build some lego model spacecrafts at scale 6:1. It was decided that I will be the main superviser of this project (mainly because I suggested it; next time I will be more quiet ;-)).
One of these models will be the mythic classic space ref. 918. In order to have an idea of the amount of parts needed for the building, I decided to do a complete MLCAD modelling (with some help of Benoit Kayser). First, we have modelled each part at scale 6:1 and at the end have just put the "hexa-parts" together following the original building instructions.
Here are some LDVIEW pictures of the complete 918 "hexa-model".
Next, the members of the Fanabriques association will try to build it in real. But this is another story.
