Tulipa kolpakowskiana? #7

OK, bare with me for what I'd like to think as the last post on the thermal blankets - modules separation subject (yeah right) ... I spent the last few days rewiring our 7K-OK to support the simultaneous separation of the Orbital and Service modules and, aside from a couple of minor tweaking to come, I believe we finally got something that is relatively accurate .. well kinda ... I'm still not too sure about the timing of the separation, nor the way the blankets peel off ... But here it is:
First, the cable running from the PAO to the BO is yanked away ...
Then the spacecraft separates into 3 modules and the blankets are peeled away ...

Et voila ... now we can all (hopefully) move on ;-)
