Lindberg US Moon Ship

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd throw this in the ring.  I'm not very good at documenting things on a day-to-day basis so here's the whole enchilada. (Edited to try to fix photo links)

 

I decided to take a run at doing the Lindberg US Moon Ship as a cross between a bit of steam punk, soviet-style and apollo.

One thing that I realized was that there was no way for the astronauts to get down to the surface - or even out of the capsule so I figured they needed an external platform and elevator!

Used up a bunch of old PE and decals that I've had laying about for some time.  Plastic buttons were used for the landing pads (the original had small rectangles).

At this point on the clock, the pictures do show for me. I like the look. Also like inclusion of figures. 

Elevator is definitely an idea which fits the period.
Soviet design aesthetic is interesting for sure, quite different from the look produced on this side of the planet.
Anatoly Zak has a book titled Russia in Space, well worth acquiring, if you don't already have it.
