Apollo 11 Transposition Docking and Extraction

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My contribution for the Apollo 11 50th anniversary.

 

Finally finished the LM - and the whole combo. I'm afraid at this scale the photos show it to be a bit scruffy, though the photos are about 3 times actual size! Last time I did a 1/72 scale LM I was 15 and I hadn't realised just how small it is at this scale! And constant touching up being required has not helped.

Hopefully the final photos will look a bit better rather than the flash photography - and there are a lot of combinations I can do.

I hadn't weighted down the S-IVB, not thinking the CSM and LM would add much weight at the forward end, so it sits further back on the stand than I intended. Ah, well too late now.

Very nice.  I like the way the LM has come out. I'm still working on mine - got distracted by the SV.

Thanks very much guys. I'm afraid I have to do one model at a time Tim. You are juggling a whole load there.

 

Now to spend a bit of time on the "real" photos - and there will be a few:) !

 

cheers,

Excellent work as always Keith. Amazing considering the base kit and size...

Very nice build and presentation. We need more builds such as this to commemorate an impressive achievement and important anniversary.

Hi Keith!

 

Being of 'The right vintage' :lol:, I am nuts about anything Apollo!

 

This is a great build, of a scenario I have not seen modelled before, well done Sir!!

 

Keep Sticking! Cheers, Pete
