Joel Tavera’s Pilgrim Observer

 

This model was featured in the On The Bench section recently.

Here are some photos of the completed Pilgrim Observer.   I was able to incorporate some of the cool Paragrafix photo etched brass into the model and it added a lot to it’s visual dimension. You can clearly see the figures in the ports and the girder support for the nerva engine as well as the antennas and a hatch. The arms for the little yellow pod are great!

I took some liberties on the display base because the kit’s is so flimsy. I added four tubes into the planetoid base, one in the Observer it’s self and secured the bottom of the planetoid with sheet plastic. Then steel rod was inserted into the tubes and the Observer to support the model and the other two vehicles.
