    There are a few pictures on the Galileo restoration Facebook page that shows the great job they did. I'm not sure if I can post the pictures or not, so I'll just provide a link.

    I'm sure there will be more pictures coming soon!

    Space.com should have an article out tomorrow about the fully restored Galileo and possibly a video as well.

    The individual pictures are posted somewhere on their FB page but it didn't come up in my feed either, I had to find them (they are under "recent posts by others.") They have a few others, I just took 4 that showed the different angles and then made one picture out of it.

    Magnificent!
    But if you see closeups of the side, you can see BIG brushstrokes in the red stripe, like they painted it with an old stiff brush. Seems an odd thing to do after all that good work.

    I went back as well, and was able to dig up several pics from individual posts. A set of 23 images was posted earlier today.

    You know, for some weird reason, these pics remind of the scene in Phase II: "In Harm's Way," where they open the garage door to reveal the shuttlecraft ... ;)

    Superlative work!


    I guess now it's time to go on Craigslist for some dilithium crystals!

    I recall reading a caption that said the paint still had to be buffed out. The markings look nice and smooth in the latest photos.

    Re the paint - we duplicated the techniques used on the original. No vinyl labels!! And you're probably seeing a compression artifact, the paint looks great in person.

    BTW - if you look carefully at the original Galileo 7 episode - you can see hand prints, paint overspray, and other paint issues. Heck, if you look at the impulse deck carefully you can see the reflection of the crew and the camera shooting the scene. We didn't restore the hand prints, or the "scorch marks" from the bad landing, or the dirt on the nacelles.

    Great article with many pictures in the Houston Chronicle: http://www.chron.com/news/houston-t...-shuttle-getting-closer-to-4621280.php#src=fb

    Thanks for all the appreciation. She is being trucked starting TODAY to Houston and if anyone sees her on the road a photo would be appreciated!
