Just dug up a small booklet with nice logo of TRW 1979...
TRW : Thompson – Ramo – Wooldridge
American corporation established in 1958 by the merger of Thompson products with Ramo-Wooldridge Corp, renamed TRW Inc in 1965. TRW developed missile systems and the Pioneer 10 and 11 deep space probes. By 2002, Northrop Grumman acquired TRW defense and Goodrich Corporation took over TRW Aerospace group. Nowadays TRW Automotive Holdings Corp is the world’s leader in automotive safety.

Would the Pioneer H spacecraft that hangs in the Milestones of Flight Gallery at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. have accurate thrusters for your use? I have a few shots of it somewhere around here. I am sure that one of us will find himself or herself in that museum and willing to take a few close-up digital images of the thrusters.

Just do not fall while leaning over the balcony trying to get the perfect shot.

That would be wonderful! One of the good fellow of the Celestia community have done the same last year when I was modeling Voyager. You probably know the result and I must say I'm quite happy with this model... laugh.gif
