We have all the hope for Toutatis, that he should step up work on creating models of spacecraft of the USSR and Russia.

I will try... Thanks... :smile: :smile: :smile:

Just corrected model of Double Star spacecraft... Gironde's addon now less than 1 MGbt...

want to make these models too...

..............

Added after 3 minutes 29 seconds:
.................

Added after 4 minutes 7 seconds:
a lot of work, but I will try to make more 3d-models of spacecrafts during this year, and trajectories for them as well...

The only thing we still need is a 3D model of the Hipparcos satellite.

Wow! All recent work and a new method for constructing trajectories are amazing :smile:

Now Mariner-10 trajectory by toutatis is more accuracy by date and distance of Venus, Mercury flyby...

Venus flyby: difference by distance: +163 km... in Celestia - 5931 km... Real - 5768 km...
difference by date: - 46 minutes.... in Celestia - 05 Feb 1974 16:15 UTC... Real - 05 Feb 1974 17:01 UTC

Mercury first flyby: difference by distance: -23 km... in Celestia - 680 km... Real - 703 km
difference by date: - 20 hours 07 minutes... in Celestia - 29 Mar 1974 00:40 UTC... Real - 29 Mar 1974 20:47 UTC

Merccury second flyby: difference by distance: +1 km... in Celestia - 48 070 km... Real - 48 069 km...
difference by date: 0 (?) in Celestia - 21 Sep 1974 04:33... Real - 21 Sep 1974...

Mercury third flyby: difference by distance: +11 km... in Celestia - 338 km... Real - 327 km....
difference by date: 0 (?) in Celestia - 16 Mar 1975 08:40... Real - 16 Mar 1975...

for making this trajectory was used SPICE Kernels data from NASA, JPL...

Guys, do we have a good 3D-models of Venera-2-10 spacecrafts??? Want to make trajectories for Venera-spacecrafts...

Mariner 10 is not planned to improve? Its model is not the most successful.

Yes, Art Blos... but maybe later...

For Venera see :

Thanks Gironde...

I feel these models will need to be updated as they appear low quality to today's standards.

Yes, SpaceFanatic64... these models are too low quality... just saw..

Today I made some corrections for model... and now next step... xyzv-trajectory for Venera-4 will be ready during week...
