This is the 1/144th scale Airfix Orion III from "2001: A Space Odyssey". I lowered the engine hump, placed a styrene strip over the fuselage windows to lower narrow them as they appear in the movie (a nice technique I learned from another modeler), sanded most of the bulky detail and used some pencil line. The rear fuselage ladders were sanded off and replaced with N scale railroad ladders. The nose was properly angled and lots and lots of putty was used!
