    THANKS, MUCH APPRECIATED MY FRIENDS! Now I'm working on the Service Module (SM) of APOLLO 11 Mission. I've already finished the big bell shaped jet thrust nozzle of the SM. Hopefully, I'm going to share some images soon. Take care "Best Space Modellers"!

    That is amazing. The LEM is one of my favorite subjects. The first true manned spaceship, it was only meant to fly outside the atmosphere.

    I think it would be very cool to have your LM set in an accurate moon diorama, with the landing probes bent and half buried in lunar soil, tether straps dangling about after deploying ALSEP, MESA, LRV...

    Extraordinary models and craftsmanship. My opinion is that you should get a real good lunar landscape picture, maybe as large as an 11x14. Make it stand straight up in dry cement (simulating lunar soil). Then get yourself a cheap plastic pinhole camera, preferably 6x9 or 6x12 format. Get very close and use a single light source from the side and behind the camera. The pinhole camera will have everything in focus. The background picture will dictate where the single light source should come from.

    Has anyone built an ALSEP layout? Or have they tackled the Apollo 14 MESA cart?

    Really nice Job spaceboy.

    Very nice detail on the module. Can't wait to see the SM.

    Your LM is indredible.

    Wow. That's all I can say (picks jaw up off ground, pushes eyeballs back into sockets). This model is incredible. I had started U-Don's model a couple years back but got distracted by something else and never completed. I'm going to have to put this back on my list of things to build (after I finish my shuttle stack/MLP/crawler). Thanks for sharing your photos... this gives me all kinds of ideas for using different materials in my builds.

    excellent job!
    (just a little note. my introduction to paper models was a lunar lander kit provided by Philips 66 in 1969. yeah, I'm old.)

    Thank you very much indeed EVERYBODY! I've just started to build SM of "Columbia". But the only thing I completed is the nozzle of SM. Now I'm building other parts where the nozzle attached. I will keep you updated soon hopefuly. By the way I really like the new interface of the web site; great job! ;)

    I started to built Service Module of Apollo 11 flight a few months ago; here are some photos of engine nozzle and engine part where the nozzle attached. Also high-gain antenna and some of its components, finally main body structure of the SM without exterior panels. I'll post more Picture when I complete the other parts of The Columbia (CSM).
