Smol Orion. And we're going 🚀 :sparkles_pan: :sparkles_blue: :sparkles_blue:

Now let's hope the big counterpart will do all right on it's trip to the moon 🤞

And he has a big brother 🌌 :sparkles_pan: 🛰️ That was a successful & crafty evening.

More pictures tomorrow in better light.

In anticipation of the Artemis-1 launch, I have started building the Orion spacecraft, including its service module. The rear half is already finished, for the first time with round bent wire. The four solar cells look great in this arrangement! :sparkles_blue: :sparkles_indigo: :sparkles_pan: It's really fiddly to get the wire perfectly round, but it's worth it for the look.
