Even the panel (the big surfaces) need work.

As it is visible, the vertices are in groups along the radiator curve, and in the "big surface" there are large flat areas, and then many small areas. This makes it look "steppy" and not smooth. Ideally, areas with more curvature should have more vertices, but not like the current grouping which I'm sure is wasteful.

Spent some time and I came up with this alternate design with less vertices and only kept the groups where they were necessary. Is it acceptable?

Looks much smoother. And if it's cheaper, even better.

Checked in the updated radiator panels. I kept the mesh group order intact so there's no need for any rebuilds.

Finally finished writing the Crawler section for the manual, heavily based on the (now) previous .txt file.

Also finished the windows group, so now they all match the frames and are a plane, so reflections are perfect. (just remembered that I still have to inspect the hatch window... )

DaveS, did you finish with the radiators? I noticed some issues that I'd like to fix to tick the rads off the list...

Yes, I'm done with them, nothing pending there.

So I wanted to correct the kinks and waves in the fwd bulkhead, and currently it doesn't match the Xo582 and Xo576 values... it is too forward (also supported by the position of the EVA winch). Also, the "bend" currently does not start at Zo410.
The top of the PLBDs/bulkheads, is it at Zo500 sharp or something else?

According to the Payload bay doors and radiator panels familiarization handbook, the PLBDs go from Xo574.090 at the centerline to Xo579.300 at the hinge line at the forward end. The hinge line runs at Zo420 (Zo410 is where the PLB sills are). The top of the doors should be at Zo500.314.

About 2cms fwd at the top, and about 1cm at the bottom....

Yes, that is the PLBD hinge line (I started to correct the hinges in a previous rev), but I meant the Zo at which the fwd bulkhead bends.

Another ~2cms above where it should be... This also affects the aft compartment, which would now have a lower fwd end, so the OMS pods probably will just need a shift and not a (large) rotation.

The hinge line is even at Zo420, no matter where you measure it, it's a straight shot from Xo574.090 to Xo1307. The bottom of the doors are Zo420 which is where the midbody ends in the Z-axis. The two bulkheads belong to the forward and aft fuselages respectively. The midbody is an open structure, save for the floor and sidewalls (to which the tiles are bonded).
