    re:s5E8, Can anyone explain to me why the leap across space to the other ship without a suit did not kill or freeze eyeballs to blind the leaper.

    So that certain annoying character, can continue to annoy us once more.

    Did you ever see "The Rock" when Nicholas Cage had to inject himself with Atropine in order to survive the nerve gas? Maybe it's a similar situation.

    Nah, the show doesn't actually explain what it is Naomi uses but the books do. It's a device that has two functions, the medical one is it contains a sample of super oxygenated blood, the second is it has a release beacon designed to unlock and allow access to the exterior airlock of any non-military vessel.

    Time to do a little showing off.

    Nearly three years ago when I had first started in to The Expanse I went looking for a Rocinante model at the time I couldn't find anything but I did find the Papercraft forum with a version that I could print and build myself, that started a whole new hobby that over the last three and a bit years has resulted in me designing 6 additional ships and building 5 of them. Around a year in to this new hobby I found a Kickstarter by Ideal Planet with the goal to create and launch a model of the Rocinante. I signed up for it immediately and nearly two years later that model has finally arrived. So here's a few pictures of this long awaited model.

    The last picture is the model, which is in season 4 colour scheme next to the paper version built in season 1 - 3 colour scheme.

    With shipping and the fact that I am a huge sucker for the show and associated fan bait I went for the most expensive Polyglottal Edition which also came with a ton of extra stuff at a cool £190.

    Is it all made from paper? That's really neat!

    Yeah all the models pictured in this thread are made from paper / card. Some of them end up using toothpicks for things like comms arrays and PDC turrets.

    Talking of which prototype build of the Amun - Ra Protogen Stealth Frigate is now complete.

    They are really beautiful, you should display them at some expo/convention related to scifi content, once the restrictions and epidemic is over ofc.

    I've been on this model for way to long but that's it I am done

    The final version of the Amun Ra Protogen Stealth Frigate.

    After years of building The Expanse ships I've opted to take a break and try something a little more light hearted.
