Venera 9 Orbiter add-on progress

Venera 9 for Orbiter screenshots. It will take some time to get the configuration right, but I'm making progress. I'm following the Venera-D add-on by kodiak as a guideline and because the landing sequence is similar.

Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace

Some photos I took at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace in Paris. It's well worth the visit for any space enthusiast, specially for the 1:1 models and real artifacts of ESA and Russian/Soviet space probes and rockets.
