This is from the old "Astronaut On the Moon" kit, 1/6 scale by Revell ... I did a lot of scratch building to make this model more accurate compared to the kit ...

Lots and lots of added details ... like the Camera, PLSS (Backpack), boots, hoses, LEVA helmet ...

Many Thanx Mark!

This kit was big enough that I could use a lot of different materials to replicate some details. I used Aluminum Foil, Grocery Bag plastic, Straight Pinheads, First-Aid tape Home made decals ... and I had a ball doing it!

Another great build Pete! I love how Cernan and the Apollo 17 mission was portrayed on “From the Earth to the Moon”. Your work captures that spirit perfectly!
