I am modding Valerie Roche (Whatsuptoday) and Emmanuel Urquieta (Spacemd)¨s NASA Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower to Mobile Launcher Platform 1 as it was on the STS-1 launch.
Or as close as I can get it. Most of it done in LDD. But I'll replace my current Tail Service Masts with KingsKnights, but modify them to STS-1.
For the internal supports I'll use technic beams/bricks. Test version from LDD can be seen here:
Bigger picture here.
I did not have the technic bricks at home. Only the beams etc.
Yesterday I got the final bricks via bricklink and built it IRL, the structure seems OK. So what is seen in the picture, is built in real life too.
Someday I think I'll buy and replace the horizontal beams with bricks instead. And make a few additions so it covers more.
Sort of a T structure between the "vents/exhaust holes" of the MLP. Now all three "vents" are in the open area. And more support towards side 3, right of the picture. Unused technic holes on the bricks will be used.
