Hubble, Bubble, Trouble and Foil! (Part 2)

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope 3D model is now complete with both versions of the Solar Wings. Personally, even though the current Solar Wing maybe technically better, I prefer the original Solar Wings.

Guess I've now got to build the Space Shuttle payload bays for the servicing missions.

Looks pretty good. One thing though: The forward scuff plates do not jave any trunnion pins.

The HST has only 3 trunnion pins (two on the Aft Shroud and one on the Forward Shell) and one keel pin (on the Aft Shroud).

The keel/trunnion pins should be reflective gray metallic color.

Thanks Dave for the feedback. I've based the current model on some old drawings. I've started to make the changes and some other tweaks: primary mirror location adjusted to the correct location.

Not sure which mission they were taken on.
