Lunokhod 2 Posted December 16, 2020 Share Posted December 16, 2020 I have been designing and selling spacecraft models on Shapeways for several years now starting with the 1/32 lunar module. The precision and finesse of current 3D printers make injection molded parts somehow obsolete if you want to build a highly precise model. I realized that when I built my 1/32 Monogram Command Module, I replaced about 80% of the parts with higly detailled printed parts. Unfortunately Shapeways through multiple modifications of their pricing system has become extremely expensive and on the other hand personnal 3D printers are more and more reliable and less and less expensive. I have then decided to sell my models as printable parts while keeping them as well on shapeways. The first model to be sold is the 1/48 CSM. It is probably one of the most detailled model available at that scale and it is designed for all missions including those with the SIM bay. I am glad that Max Grüter aggreed to design 2 astronauts to depict the trans-Earth EVA . Deatils for the Apollo 13 Servive Module (fuel cells and hydrogen and oxygen tanks will be available soon free of charge). The model is available right now on cult3D : https://cults3d.com/.../var.../apollo-command-service-module Quote Link to post Share on other sites
