    Revision 7 is posted. Very nice stuff (I peeked) Revision 6 is still there for those who are working on it.

    P.S. If anyone wants to make a nice pretty background and such for the page, lemme know (through PM, of course, let's try to stay focused).

    My page was intended just for storage, so I never bothered making it pretty

    Detail is looking great Carl, and thanks for hosting MOS95B! It makes it much easier for us morons who can't operate a simple unzipping program (okay, so I'm speaking for myself!).
    Does anybody have any build pics for the interior parts? I'm kind of at a loss when it comes to Page 11 thus far.

    Carl, with all the work you are doing for us, the LAST thing you need to do is apologize for any perceived delays. Thank you very much for a terrific project.
    Later,
    Fred Z.

    I say we may as well use the same thread, but I don't know the specifics on how that affects loading time, size limit, etc. I'm here every day... I notice new threads immediately, so you aren't in danger of losing my interest!

    Apollo Command Module 1/24th Scale - Rev.7

    Fred,
    I second that - a tremendous effort.

    Carl,
    I say stick to the same thread - it´s called "Apollo CM & SM ..." so why change it? A for "Apollo" puts it on top of the list, at least in my download schedule.

    MOS95B,
    Rev.7 is posted? Where?

    Best,
    Bengt :D

    Dressing up the Download Page?

    I am no Web Page Designer. I can do a nice backdrop/wallpaper for the page. Does anyone know what they are doing in that world, (LOL). I would like to have a link to the NASA server "Moon Port" Report too, (Just wishing)!

    Sorry Bengt, I wasn't talking about you in my post.:wink:

    I meant that it was obvious who the site belonged to, by looking at the url.

    I just read my own post and realized that what I said can be taken two totally different ways.

    I wasn't trying to be obnoxious, sorry it sounded that way.:oops:

    Apollo Command Module 1/24th Scale - Rev.7 Downloaded!

    No worries, Russell,

    I didn´t read it that way at all. I just completely forgot about the 'Moon Port' site.

    Carl,
    Thanks for the internal formers in the same (1:24) scale - they look just as I had imagined them. I´ll immediately glue them to heavy card stock, cut them out and try if it works the way I thought, in a double cross with eight supports. Hope so . . .
    Thanks also for the update on the side control panels.

    This has potential of an amazing Apollo CM model - thanks Carl for all your unending efforts.

    All the best,
    Bengt :D

    Part 29 Warning

    I was just working on the Mortar Cans & Chutes, (When I realized something). The Part 29 should have Mirror image of each to laminiate to the back side, (I will correct this and publish the parts mentioned with the instructions in the morning. I hope the requested formers do the trick also.
