Don, Mike, Rob and Jay your interest in this build means so much as do the encouraging words you speak. This is build no.2 and had it not been for the link below and a build done by Vincent Meens I doubt I would have tackled this. Vincent chronicled his build with very easy to follow photographs. His capsule was built in the pre-flight configuration.
In the pictures so far I have the ejection seat tray, hatch flange, and some of the initial bulkheads in place along with the recovery section. I used paper templates to test fit the various components first before making them out of plastic card. Imagine being stuffed into a cannonball and being shot into space, a brave man he was Mr. Gagarin.

Some update photo's. Jay and Mike, you guys should be on stage. The Sharik sphere halves with the instrument panels and shelves fitted. I have also built the ejection seat frame, imagine what that was like ejecting from a cannonball . If you look closely in the last picture of the real vehicle on the right side just above the small black square(right near the arrow) you'll see a 60's era AM radio receiver with push buttons and tuning knobs, scary. Take a look at the last link provided to see it.
vivkulan, hope I don't disappoint
