  1. One Small Step for Man (A50106) 1:72 Airfix It’s a long time since Man walked on the moon, and although we as a species plan to go back there soon, the Apollo and Saturn series are still at the pinnacle of crewed interplanetary spaceflight if we discount the excellent low orbit work of Space-X and others as they don't break orbit - yet! At the time in the late 1960-70s there was a flurry of new models and toys, with Airfix being amongst them with many releases, including this pair of kits that have been brought together with new decals and other enhancements to
  2. About 15 years ago I won an ebay auction for two Airfix Lunar modules. The first one I built as part of a project for my stepson (he's 25 now !). With the 50th anniversary of the moon landings fast approaching & no sign of a new-tool version I thought it was about time I dragged the second kit out of my stash. Well it was 15 years ago... the second kit was in a bag: problem 1: no decals - no problem, I have a couple of decent printers problem 2: one of the legs isn't complete The problems above didn't put me off starting. I
  3. Astronauts (A00741V) 1:76 Airfix Vintage Classics In the 60s and 70s there was a huge interest in going to the Moon, and consequently there were a lot of space-themed toys. These figures stand out in my memory because I used to own a set, and loved the little gadgets you could put together and play with. I have no idea where they went in the long-term, but when I opened the little box from Airfix the other day, I was beaming from ear to ear (not the Star Trek kind) almost immediately. Arriving in a small end-opening rectangular box, you get four sprues o
  4. The final category of kit that I believe the GB has not as yet covered is 'Space. (Nimrod54's excellent Angel Interceptor covers the 'TV and Film' category). Having really lost my senses this time, I put out a call in the 'Wanted' section to see if I could lay my hands on one of Airfix's Space kits, the smaller the better. My prayers were answered with the 1/72 Apollo Lunar Module from 1970. Let's pause to drool over the 'Red Stripe' packaging and box art...... All the bits were there - someone has looked after this extremely well.... You even get an addit
  5. Hi guys, well this has been a fun build. I had a picture in my mind how I wanted this diorama to look and for once it has come out looking just as I imagined it, spooky! It's a bit biased towards the movie look rather than a true representation of how an actual explosion would appear in the vacuum of space. I hope you enjoy the pics. Finally, you can see the work in progress of my build in the link below.
  6. Hi all, been working on a new real space project this last week or so. I bought this kit off eBay, I wanted to convert it to be Apollo 13. I have opened up one of the compartments and scratch built the damage from the explosion. Adding some RGB (Red, Green, Blue) flashing LEDs to give a flashing explosion effect. I also wanted to light the thruster rockets on the side of the command module, however the nozzles were micro small and there was no way it was possible to drill them out to add lighting of any sort. I did a slight cheat and drilled some small holes through the back
  7. I read on CultMantv.com that Dragon will be reissuing 4 space kits. This is good news to me. Last year when I became excited about real space I soon learned that many of the kits I wanted were no longer available. The kits that will be reissued this summer and also available for pre-order are: Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle 1:48 Part Number:DRA-11008 Apollo 11 Lunar Approach Columbia and Eagle 1:72 Part Number:DRA-11001 Apollo 11 CSM 1:48 Part Number:DRA-11007 Apollo 11 Lunar Landing Columbia and Eagle 1:72 Part Number:DRA-11002
  8. Presenting the Monogram 1/32 Apollo CSM, with New Ware etch interior (and other parts), and Space Model Systems decals, plus of course the Realspace Models resin unitary hatch. This kit was released in 1969 and is still available. It is the only accurate commercial kit of the craft, although it appears to be based on monochrome official drawings and some photos, and has inaccuracies as it comes - the biggest one being the gold plated Command Module! A full interior is included, although the complex instrument panels are for reasons that may never be understood, represented by terrible stickers
  9. (Note - I've probably put this is the wrong section, it should have been in Ready for Inspection, but I'm not sure if I can move it easily....) Welcome to one of my now infrequent postings, as the title suggests, here's a Revell 1/48 Lunar Module I did earlier, about 39 years earlier in fact... this is my oldest surviving model of any kind. For some reason it's just always been there! First, a little history... Yup, that's me - No-more Shelf-space Junior, from Scale Models August 1978. (thanks to Jinxman for the pdf copy!) Note the financial confidence, quite unfounded as I was
  10. Hi folks, Been very busy but managed to fit time in to finish this nice little kit my wife got me for Christmas. A very nice kit and well worth the effort. enjoy. Thanks for looking.
  11. I did actually make some kits without putting any lighting in them and this is one of them. Like most of my smaller kits, this was built 'as is' straight from the box. I've also done the Airfix Saturn V and will post some pictures of that once I have worked out how to get it all into one picture.
  12. HI, Well finally finished this to a reasonable finish,the build,s are posted in the in-progress section,warts and all? a little bit of history,about this major vehicle in the up-coming moon programme...
