Apollo 8 is one of the most monumental moments in space travel as on Christmas Eve 1968, the spacecraft entered the moons orbit, the first time a human had ever orbited it. The mission launched on 21st December 1968 and landed back on Earth 27th December 1968. The crew were the first humans to look at the moons surface in person as they orbited around the moon from an altitude of just 60 nautical miles.🌕🌏 ————————————————————————

The third photo is Bill Anders, who only went to space on Apollo 8. The fourth photo is Jim Lovell, who has 30 days space travel- a massive amount for them shown by him being the most travelled astronaut at the time. The fifth photo is the iconic earth rise photo taken by Bill Anders, one of the most impressive photos ever taken. -
EM-pronssia sarjassa purple belts, adult -100,5kg! Sehän meni ihan kivasti. Ekasta kauluskuristus mountista, toisesta bow and arrow, ja semifinaalissa tuli sodan jälkeen takkiin 2-0 pisteillä. Taso oli kyllä kova, ja aina vois mennä paremmin, mut oon kyllä ekoihin pukukisoihin uudella vyöllä erittäin tyytyväinen.
Kiitos Turun Ju-jutsuseuran valmennus ja treenikaverit, paikalla olleet Suomen kannustusjoukot, ja meidän seuran matkaseurue.
Kroppassa ei oo yhtään paikkaa, joka ei sattuis. Nyt palautusta, huomenna ja ylihuomenna muiden seuralaisten matsit.
#Piececool build № 18: The Skynet Spider Superheavy Tank. I got this model over a month ago, but I saved it until now so that it would be my 250th build. 😀
If it's not clear, I love this model. There's so much detail and interesting bits, that I had a hard time deciding on what to photograph for the close-up shots. There are so many will placed widgets and greeblies that add to the overall badassery of this tank. The inclusion of movable turrets is awesome, and they turn smoothly. I don't know who decided on the color scheme, but it works well - I never would have thought of adding a green accent. I was surprised to find that the bottom of this tank is wide open, though not completely open. Of course, it's really not something I want to pick up a whole lot, as it's tread modules are only attached with three tabs to the side of main body, which doesn't actually have a lot of lateral reinforcement, so it flexes easily.
I'm honestly not sure what to say about building this model. If you've been following along, you've seen the build process, and probably heard about my trials with parts 90 and 97. You may have seen how much trouble I had with attaching those retainer rings to the underside of the turrets. You might be able to guess that it took me roughly 15-20 hours to complete the build. So I'm wondering what's left to say. One interesting detail is that the long barrels are actually hollow tubes, and are held in place with rubber tubing that you secure inside the metal barrels at either end. The tubes were a little long, but I was able to trim them back with my flush cutters.
All in all, it was definitely a good choice for my 250th build. On to the next 250...
