    Please allow me to pipe in with similar words of praise. Really great work! It is particularly impressive when you consider that Carl churned these things out without any type of instructions for the builder. To take the pieces and assemble them into a great-looking model is really an accomplishment.

    You have excelled yourself with your payload pallet design:inw:
    You can see how much you have researched,you have designed and made every hinge and strapjawdropjawdrop

    With all the extra details your LRV is a masterpiece:goldcup:

    Mission accomplished!

    I have just completed my add-ons for Surfduke´s LRV. I added additional bags, antenna and belts. Now the model is accomplished.

    Incredible. It's so detailed that it looks like a top-quality scale model. Are you planning on adding a couple of astronauts to accompany it?

    Thats a fantastic model,I started the rover sometime ago,but without the instructions I had no real idea what I was building,so it got left very unfinished,
    If only I had the time to attempt it again !

    Good to see someone not just completing it,but adding to make it one of the best space hardware models Ive seen,

    Brilliant stuff :eek: :thumb:,

    Spectacular! And in 1/16 scale! Way too advanced for my current level. Bravo to you and Surfduke.

    Wow, this is cool. I just saw the 1:1 scale Lunar Rover at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA. Yours looks very close to what I saw. Super!! I'll have to see if I can find this paper model for myself. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, never mind...found it. I should have read your words rather than looking at the pics.

    Nice blog marcellino. The Red shift of the pictures is from not enough light. External light, such as lamps, etc, can remove this. Good luck with it! :)

    The amber tone may also be from the nature of using incandescent light rather than sunlight. Incandescent bulbs have a warmer more yellow hue than natural light (the same way that florescent bulbs have a colder bluish tone). Try using a "fill" flash to neutralize and color correct the tones. This at least was the problem years ago when I worked with film photography, and it still seems to hold true with the digital cameras that I play around with these days. :mrgreen:
