    I am amazed at such an accomplishment!

    Utterly brilliant! It's beautifully done!

    I wonder who will be the first to try their hand at building it?!?

    It was quite a task!

    What I want to see is someone try it at 1:32, (That will be a tiny challange).

    P.S.
    I guess the LEM will have to be this scale too, (LOL)!

    Thanks

    I have to publish the finals on the CM, & Skylab now. I am thinking of doing Soyuz for ASTP, before I move to the LEM next.

    Carl,

    P.S.

    I am going to let the feed back come in on this model, before I do the tool pallet options & Grade indic. Box.

    Superb Apollo Models

    Thanks, Carl,

    I second Hans here - we´re not DOING anything, just waiting for the amazing free models that you furnish us with.

    With these recent models, you have set a new standard for excellence in detail in real space card modeling.

    Regards,
    Bengt :D

    You Do Indeed!

    Hi Carl,

    I´m very excited about a new model of the LEM, too - I´sure that you will surpass the existing models by far.
    There is no current model with an interior, as far as I know.

    All the best,
    Bengt :D
