This is the EVA Models 1/35 LRV, Resin and PE kit. It was my first Resin and PE kit and is still holding up well, a few years later ...

The S- Band antenna was made from a Zip-loc bag. It replaces the kit's wire mesh item. The tall antenna on the rear end is specific to Apollo 17 and was made with styrene and an Aluminum tube.

It's a Diorama depicting a specific Station on their EVA.

I also added a few more details form various materials for seat belts and covers on the Batteries and stuff like that.

Both Schmitt and Cernan ... Schmitt's visor was scratched and he had it half raised a lot on their EVA's.

As part of my research, I watched hours of their EVA's on DVD's from Spacecraft Films ... it still amazes what the USA did 50 years ago ... re-e-e-e-markable!

Brilliant work once again Pete! I love the realism you add to these models. Yeah, cannot get enough of watching those guys way back when!

Thanx Mark ... Thanx John ... with little bits of wire, or tape, or strips of this and that, our imagination interprets these as correct and enhances the overall look of our little miniatures. 

Plus, for me, when these events were televised, in B&W, over 50 years ago, I was one of those that were up at 3 am to watch these EVA's, so building and researching these models takes me way-y-y-y back to when I was just a kid ... but this process, and their completion, really gets those Endorphins firing! ( wasn't Endorphin a character in Buckaroo Bonzai? )   ;^ D

Thanx again Gents!

That’s a great diorama Pete! Again, your attention to detail is fabulous. Everywhere you look is a mini tale of that moment in time.
