Hello to all, some days ago I´ve found a very interesting release from Great Wall Hobby: the first part of China´s space-station.

Possible one can convert it into a soviet Almaz-staion, or Salyut.

Images are from: www.1999.co.jp


Also they announce this station-kit with the Shenzhou-8-spacecraft in a kit.




greetings...

I'm pretty sure that's not possible. I beleive the diameters & lengths are not correct for either Almaz or Salyut. The exterior details are very different as well. By the time you've scratchbuilt all of the exterior stuff, making the basic hull would be pretty easy.
