    Please Help Me!!!

    Hello Space-Modelers!!! I'm a freshman & I'm a space-modeler too; I'm from Türkiye (Turkey). Actually I want to ask a question to Wedge about his Lunar Roving Vehicle - 1:48 Scale. Wedge, could you please sent me your 1:48 scale LRV's PDF files via e-mail OR post it to this threat??? (By the way I sent a mail to you, please look at it so you can see my e-mail address) Thanks, much appreciated for your interest!
    P.S: I'm about to finish my 1:48 Scale LM-5 & I'll post first images of it to this forum under a new topic as soon as possible.:wave:

    Hello Spaceboy. Welcome here on the forum .
    The LRV I have build is a scratchbuild. It means , that almost everything is made by-hand - it is original construction . Neveerthelsess I have used two models - one for the size comparison and one for the basic texture of axletree.

    Only for completion - somewhere in this section you can find the completed Apollo 15 diorama :thumb:

    P.s. Thank you all for your interest and kind words :rolleyes:

    LRV Model

    Hi Space Boy,

    I believe this was a free download model, issued in 1:16 scale and designed by Carl 'Surfduke' Hewlett in 2007 or 2008. Try Googling for 'Surfduke' and 'Moonport' and you will get lucky . . .

    Best,
    Bengt :thumb:

    PS. The model is called 'Apollo Lunar Rover RLV Rev.2'!

    yeah well,....Some of these people hold to their beleifs as though they constitute a religion of some sort. Still the recent LRO images should put a damper on the moon hoax crowd.
