    OOOOOOO.... :twisted:

    thanks for that sir Bengt!!!

    and oh yeah, just like sir Perry said, where's the 1/32 scale (revision 1)version?

    oh well, maybe I'll just rescale the 1/16 variant... :-D

    Carl´s Lunar Rover Models

    Perry and Hans,

    It seems that you are right - I can´t find it, either.
    However, I have all Carl´s models saved on my separate hard drive. So, please send me a PM, stating your e-mail address, and I will send the 1:32 scale model to you rightaway. No trouble at all - I´m glad if I can help.

    Best,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Bengt,

    The Rev. 1 that I got from Carl last year has only has 3 pages - The cover sheet and two pages of wheel parts. Nothing else. If yours is different, may I also have a copy as well?

    Bengt,
    could we ask to Mos95b to update his "Moonport" site with your files?
    So all of we will have available the correct version.

    It's only a suggestion.... :mrgreen:
    Best, Nando

    Carl´s Lunar Rover Models

    mvink,

    You are absolutely right - the 1:32 scale rover model that I have has only 3 pages!!! It is a preliminary release.
    I hadn´t noticed this before, because I was only interested in the 1.16 scale model, which is complete with 14 pages in all (including the cover).

    Sorry about this, Perry and wedge! The Rev. 2 PDF file on the 'Moonport' home page (in 1:16th scale) seems to be the only existing one. I actually recall a discussion now that Carl had on this forum where he asked the members which size they preferred. As I can remember, the majority were in favor of the slightly larger size. That might explain why there is only one (Rev. 2).
    However, downsizing a PDF is easy and does not affect quality, so that would be the thing to do if you want a smaller model.

    Best,
