Here's some 'final' pics of Klavs' gorgeous Scimitar. The texture detail and coloring have been nicely sharpened up, and the ship is now sporting some beefy missiles. If you showed a brand new fan this model and some Academy cartoons, they'd think this was the hottest fighter around in '54!
The Space Shuttle Discovery launched today on its final mission into outer space. Discovery was the fourth orbiter built after Enterprise, Columbia and Challenger. It has also flown the most mission - today's launch kicks off the shuttle's 39th. In addition to stocking the International Space Station, Robonaut 2 is being brought aboard. It will be the first humanoid robot in space. The goal is to eventually have similar models work side-by-side with astronauts and perform more dangerous tasks alone.
