    Thank you all :) This weekend I´m going to make the 16mm DAC camera (the one on the console ) and maybe the High-gain antena :) Some fotos will be there soon , I hope.

    to SAustin16 : you mean the tires on my 1:24 model? because the tires are not ready yet (and it is the biggest challenge :-D )

    Hi wedge,

    what are you doing there? After i've seen your camera I'm in the mood to take my construction and put into the wastepaper basket.

    It's realy fantastic! Your are building the reference model in scale 1:48.

    Great work, wedge! Someone, somewhere has instructions to build a lunar surface out of paper mache. I looked around the web and couldn't find it, but someone here probably knows the site I'm thinking of. That would be a nice addition to your model. :)

    No doubt you should continue, Wedge. This is looking great. You'll disapoint alot of ppl if you stop now. Keep up the good work, mate.

    Hello everyone. I´ve made some changes and the original construction is in the thrash bin. I decide to make the bags a little more realistic than in paper , so I´ve made it from the matter (?) Now I must find out how to make the wheels realistic.The plate which is under the LM is going to be the moon :mrgreen:
