- Details: Express how much you like the details of the build.
Your feedback is only shown to the creator as well as yourself. It is not available for other users to see. The creator won't see your user name.
The model is scaled to the diameter of the 10-stud dish element representing the high-gain radio antenna. By fortunate coincidence the shape of the "slope 53" brick elements made possible an excellent match to the wedge shape of the spacecraft main body. The entire suite of science payload instruments is represented on the model: Ralph, Alice, REX, LORRI, SWAP, PEPSSI, and SDC.
The real spacecraft was developed at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL). More information about the spacecraft and the mission is available at the New Horizons Web site http://pluto.jhuapl.edu.
(2013 August 15) I've modified some details on the model to improve accuracy; in particular, the star trackers are now more properly oriented.
