  1. Lookin great Pete. You got allot done. Thanks for getting this GB organised and sorting it, keeping us all motivated. I know I got more done than I thought I would. Fantastic
  2. Looking great Pete. Lots of good old fashioned scratch building.
  3. This is looking really great Pete. The SM aft heat shield looks like it should, better than that old kit version. I love PE, but also hate PE. When you say CA glue, is that just super glue? That's what I use, and I feel there is somethin better. What brand do you use? Keep up the great work. I gotta upload pics to my thread this weekend. On some progress with Astronauts.
  4. This looks great Pete, fantastic work. The bag trick is neat, and the foil work is great. Can you explain how you make your bases. They look cool. I've had to put my LEM on hold, while I fix up some details of my Astronauts for next months Sydney show.
  5. Great work guys, that was a beautiful launch ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  6. My diorama is completed. Apollo 11 recovery OLD 66 Shadow bird 64 CM Columbia Enjoy
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Wow guys this is some fantastic modelling. I can't wait to see this beauty fly ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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˜
  13. 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
  14. Wow, now that is a thing of beauty. You have captured so much detail. Like looking at a real Saturn V
  15. OMG OMG, ๐Ÿ˜ฒ this will look great next to the Lego Saturn V ๐Ÿ˜Š
  16. 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.
  17. I really love how this lil toy has turned out. Great job Ralf
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. This looks amazing, your paintwork so far is very nicly done. Are you printing any of these for sale ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  21. Just seen allot of 50th Anniversary re released Revell models on eBay, 1/48 LM, 1/32 CSM, 1/8 Astronaut, 1/96 CSM and LM, 1/96 Saturn V. They all look like original molds but, the 1/48 LM looks like a Dragon kit
  22. Looking great Pete, what colour Black did you use?, charcoal, gloss, matt, satin, flat? And what colour is that porch landing?. Also Crackers had a great ?, the chocolate bar for Gold foil. I've been searching in shops and looking at all the Easter eggs, and nothing is popping at being good enough.
  23. Very nicely done, gives me drive to get mine done.
  24. That Gold is Golden. Fantastic Pete ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  25. Phenomenal. It's amazing what you can do with styrene plastic. It looks so clean and pristine. Great work
