ESA MTFF / Columbus space station project (BAe 1990 proposal)

Here's a try at recreating one of the proposed ESA Columbus space station configurations. It's based around my ESA Man Tended Free-Flyer add-on, with the addition of two modules, extra solar panels, a radiator and a robotic arm.

To create this I'm using the excellent Space Station Building Blocks add-on by bregburch, with my own texture repaints to match the ESA hardware.





In general the scaling is consistent and the look matches the late early 90's time frame. This specific configuration is based on a concept proposed by British Aerospace Ltd. (BAe) in 1990.

In the future I'll try to recreate other configurations, as they make interesting destinations for the Hermes Shuttle...
