  1. Great work guys, that was a beautiful launch ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  2. My diorama is completed. Apollo 11 recovery OLD 66 Shadow bird 64 CM Columbia Enjoy
  3. Thanks guys, I've been away allot and have only managed to see few pics of all your builds, via the terrible WiFi I have onboard. But hey any WiFi at sea is a luxury. I will go back in and check them all out. Pete, I'm as young as Neil, when he walked on the moon, heh. But yes, when I look around at my work, old fart ๐Ÿ˜†. I'll post complete pics once I lock the frame to perspex.
  4. Ok. Week off work and I'm done, I just have to remake the black frame. Choppers are complete now, with yagi antenna, other antenna, cameras, weathering, markings. The Astronauts have there garments on, to protect from Moon germs, along with inflated life preserves. Divers are wearing tanks, raft has flippers in with a tank and bag. Couple of camera guys hanging out of helo 64. Float bags and details on float colar. I'll need a new plaque, this one is from another model. Maybe "Apollo 11 Splashdown" 66 wearing Apollo 8 and 10 capsules, 11 is added after landing on USS Hornet. Aircrew signal divers, for rescue basket deployment Apollo 13 inspired this shot A modeller here suggested I put clear discs on choppers. Hmm not to sure. It was hard to take these shots, without trees, powerlines, houses in the way. The base is 6mm clear Perspex, then epoxy glued 3mm crackled pattern Perspex on top of that. Then 2 part resin mixed with blue paint. Also a light spray of metallic blue over top once dry. Action shot
  5. Wow guys this is some fantastic modelling. I can't wait to see this beauty fly ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  6. Well, good news, I got back from Sea a month early yesterday. I have 3 weeks leave. YES, now time to start building n finishing. Yay
  7. Habu2, you are correct. But I think your a bit early on the 50th Anniversary date ๐Ÿ˜†. There has been no real move in Apollo space era models. Dragon has some great products some yrs ago. The re released 1/48 LEM was a let down. Gandam๐Ÿคฎ and SW are getting to much attention, but maybe soon we will see some nice Apollo models๐Ÿคž
  8. Mate, you have done a great job. Don't worry, we have all been there. Knowing these craft so well and making a silly mistake happens. Your work up till now has been outstanding. I'm sure this project will continue, once you gather yourself. Just think Apollo 12's 50th could be a new goal๐Ÿ˜
  9. That looks great, I'm sure there is a few more things lego could have done better. Maybe some of the radars and antennas. Even the Astros could be better. Seems a lil rushed. Even though they had 50 yrs and 3rd attempt. Still awesome
  10. Wow, now that is a thing of beauty. You have captured so much detail. Like looking at a real Saturn V
  11. OMG OMG, ๐Ÿ˜ฒ this will look great next to the Lego Saturn V ๐Ÿ˜Š
  12. Man that is a nice finished piece. I have been searching for one of these. Hopefully it will be re issued. Great job and great detail on the foil lines.
  13. I really love how this lil toy has turned out. Great job Ralf
  14. Bill, I'm sure you have looked over many pics of Neil in the A7L. With the Neck ring being all Blue, there was no Apollo 11 patch on that one, it also had the extra material around the patches. The rings went through a change between Apollo 8 and Apollo 9 I think. The Blue inner was still used, but the outter top and side went to Red. That suit had the Apollo 11 patch. (Put on days before launch.) What ever you do, I'm sure will look great. Mick
  15. Thanks Bill, I can understand mate. We are a few of the only people who make these models anymore, keeping Apollo alive. Once I complete my stash ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ, nd we see how yours finishes up, as it's looking great so far. I might send ya a PM. Mick
