    How you know, UHU02 has shared his wonderful model of the LM-7 Aquarius/Apollo 13
    I have downloaded this, printed in size A3 and built it as a special "Cut-model" in this way, that I built the complete inner parts and made the outer skin as a partial skin, cut out any openings, so that you can see all the parts inside the LM.
    So this wonderful model now is completed. A few views, and also opened recently in comparison with the smaller (1:48) model of U-DON'S FACTORY.
    So you can see, that my A3 printout is fairly 1:24.
    I have not counted the individual parts, the numbering goes up to 377, but the average to each number is 3-5 parts - a total of over 1200 parts ......

    great build! uhuo is just too much! whatta great model. I wish he would do an old romulan tube ship, and a romulan bird of prey and of course a tos d-7. just to see them done right. he was the first great modeler I was referred too when I started. then I saw ron's enterprise and lis chariot and then gary p's stuff on dieglos web site. those are fond memories. uhou really gave us the lem in outstanding detail with this one. nice clean build too. thanks!

    Wonderful display of an exciting subject. Enjoyed the posted pictures. It appears to not have suffered any from the increase to A3 size.

    Perfect job, fantastic! We have got a chance to look at the interior components of LM. This one is really bigger than mine (U-DON's 1:48). Good job & thanks for sharing sir.;)

    Hi SpaceModeler,
    Many congratulations on a superb build, what a tribute to the remarkable skills of UHU02.
    Great to see you decided to section your model. LM was an amazing piece of engineering and all built using slide rules and feet and inches !!
    Wonderful work......

    Doing any of the mods to increase accuracy with Uhu02 kit? Would love to them as well. Still love to look over your build each time.
