This is my very first model built a few years ago ... All the mods were made from scratch because I didn't know of any aftermarket items available. The Lunar Rover was completely built from scratch using a variety of materials.

I had built the ALSEP door to open and close.

The LRV was built from scratch too ... with homemade decals

One more view ... I've got a real affection for the Lunar Module and I've built them all, with Apollo 10's as a current build

Wow, you have officially doubled the activity on these boards with all these Masterful models! What stunning work! You should get a shot of all the LEMs together in one pic once you get Apollo Ten done. I would love to see that!

That's very interesting Mark about the activity level ...

Let's see if this image gets published!  

These are my LM models in various scales ... Left to Right ... Apollos 9 (1/96), 11, 12, 13 (landing 1/144), 14 (1/70 in the stack), 15, 16 and 17.

WOW!! That is sweet! What a collection! And here I was trying to find whatever real space model rockets I could get.

I currently have finished a Convair Atlas, Mercury Redstone, Space Shuttle Columbia with boosters, and a Saturn V rocket all of which are in 1/72 scale.

 

Way to go Pete!
