    Finished this one a couple of days ago. If you're going to build anything in the month of July, especially around the 16th thru the 20th, then you just have to pay tribute to the first men to land on the lunar surface some 49 years ago.

    I built this at around 1/32 scale so it topped out at just over 13 inches long. Enjoy!

    Well those were sort of a matte white color if I remember correctly, but then again, everything I've built out of the bare silver cans ain't lookin' too shabby, if I do say so myself! :)

    May have too look into that...

    A little greebling with some paper, and a quick flat, or semigloss paint job would knock this out of the ball park, though I like the way it looks now! :)

    There's always wiggle room for improvements and enhancements with this facet of can modeling that is for certain. I am only now just beginning to understand the possibilities of this new methodology for producing models... :)

    I think you will be producing some even more fantastic models and methods. Time to make a miniature English Wheel, and Planishing tool!! :)
