Lunar Orbital Cargo Tug

Recommended Posts

Greetings!

 

Inspired by the Willy Ley Space Taxi design of the 1950's, this model is based on the Monogram kit in 1/48 scale with extensive modification and enhancements, including LED lighting and decals.   LED lighting is powered by button type batteries in a plastic holder along with a switch and resistor in the bottom of the display base.  The three EVA crew figures, umbilicals, cargo girder beams, and cargo compartment door are all dry fitted.  

 

Many thanks for having a look, your questions and comments are always welcome.

 

Cheers,

Bill

Much can be done to this kit with some scratch building and items from the spares bin.  I made several major changes to this classic early space age kit from Monogram, but it is also a gem straight from the box!

 

Cheers,

Bill
