    1/32 Apollo CSM

    Apollo 11 Sales. For the preparation of the 50 th anniversary of each Moon landing I offer my 1/32 LM model with a 10% reduction over each combo. I intend to do the same during the duration of the 49 th anniversary of each apollo mission from Apollo 11 to Apollo 17. SInce I started late for Apollo 11, sales will last until the end of July. Since Apollo 12 to 14 parts are almost identical to Apollo 11 you will get an other chance for reduced prices.

    1/48 Lunar Rover from Shapeways

    the 1/48 wheels ar back but in white versatile plastic as metallic plastic is not available anymore : http://shpws.me/NeVE

    1/48 Lunar Rover from Shapeways

    Thanks for noting that, Shapeways changed all their brand of product and colors recently and Metallic Plastic is not available anymore. It seems to be replaced by Gray Professional which is quite expensive compare to MP. I reinstated the 1/48 wheels by adding White versatile plastic.

    1/32 Apollo CSM

    Yes I agree with you Pete. I did try with bare metal foil but the rendering was not so shiny and it didn't stick so well compare to this plastic film. And the seams are always more visible on a picture than with real eyes (or maybe my eyes are getting old).

    1/32 Apollo CSM

    I just completed my 1/32 Apollo command module and will start soon the service module. I think I should be ready for July 2019. More information on the built is available on my web site : http://spacemodels.nuxit.net/1-32%20CM/index.htm

    Progress for the Command Module, the interior is now complete and I finished applying the mylar-like material before closing the capsule.

    Bought a Printer!

    I just received my shapeways part. This is a comparison between Anycubic and Shapeways, roughly the same size. One green square on the cutting board is 1 cm. The Anycubic part seems very close to the Shapeways one. Next step will be to show both parts on the same table, then primed and painted to see how they look. It is encouraging however. Vincent

    Whoua, this is great, specially considering the size of the part (about 2 cm). The image below shows the real size for a 12.5 inches screen. I have ordered the same part on Shapeways and will do a comparison when I receive it.

    Bought a Printer!

    I just completed the design of the 1/32 CM handles and put the STL file on WeTransfer. The file is available for a week at the following address : https://wetransfer.com/downloads/37f40246ad862e9d9de879794d145bc520180522203039/9c5cade973129c168e61fd949981e02520180522203039/f924ad The part is really small and should probably be printed with a layer thickness of 0.01 to 0.05 mm. The dimensions of the part is in mm, roughly 18.5*19.6 mm by 1.9 mm. I am very interested to see if that can be printed. If successfull I will probably buy a printer myself. In the meantime I will also print it on Shapeways in order to make a comparison. Tell me if you need an other format than STL

    Bought a Printer!

    The AnyCubic printer is really a good price compare to a formlabs 2 for instance. I am just wondering what would be the results with small and tiny parts, basically the one requiring Frosted Ultra or Extreme Detail on Shapeways. So if someone is willing to try printing this kind of part I am ready to send you an STL file. Any idea about the minimum thickness and rod diameter that can be printed ?

    As you can see below the first price was quite high and the second quite low : http://www.anycubic3d.com/products/show/1273.html https://tinyurl.com/y8noxra7 I suppose the second one is the right one

    Very nice results indeed however I saw on the Anycubic web site that a bottle of resin costs $1000. That seems very expensive to me since I saw WANHAO resin for about $60. Is that really the price ?

    1/32 Apollo CSM

    The pressurized compartment of the command module is now fixed onto the heat shield. The aft compartment in the Monogram model was a very vague representation of the real thing so I decided to recreate it in 3D and print it on Shapeways. My main concern was to make sure the support frame would fit with the lower cone ribs, which it did (many thanks to my caliper).

    1/48 Lunar Rover from Shapeways

    That is correct for a complete LRV you have to buy 3 sets, see http://spacemodels.nuxit.net/1-32 LM/Descent stage J.htm and scroll down to "The Apollo 15 LRV is fully operational and equiped" and you will have links to the sets of parts for either Apollo 15, 16 or 17.

    1/48 Lunar Rover from Shapeways

    Yes this correct, the horizontal part needs to be removed. It was added because any printed part must at least have two axes ≥ 2.49 mm which was not the case here at 1/48. I can't wait to see your rover complete.
