Lunar module/scratch build/ 1:24


So I´m starting with my big project - it will be scratch build (I´m going to use some parts of the U´dons LM as the ground ) I´m not sure which one it will be ,but I have two candidates - LM 8 (Antares from apollo 12 ) or LM 12 (Challenger from Apollo 17 )
I´m absolutely not sure when , or if I will be able to complete the model because I´m going to move (2x) and change my job :-D

So this is the main idea - the aluminium plates looks good so far

The material is used from the barbecue saucer ( I dont know the right word :D ) When I saw this material , it was the impulse for the whole idea to build the LM

I like it, but: Aren`t there too many and too large rivets?

As far as I know only the additional black heatcovers were attached with a sort of rivets, the other plates are more or less smooth.

Here are some closeup pictures of the real thing to show what I mean:

This isn´t the final arrangement , I´m going to put the thin coat right on the metal plate , so the the purpose of the rivets is only for the feeling of roundless :D You won´t see them ;)

Hi wedge (German: Der Keil) :D,

What do you mean with "nobody noticed" ?

I notice your scratchbuild from the beginning and I'am glad to see it growing.

I have some questions:

- For which purpose you have applied the masking tape ?
- Are you brushing the gaps ?

I'am surprised about the drawings you have available. Have you any source for us or are you a NASA employee ?

My Very Best Regards

Hello René , thank you for such a kind words , but I am dissatisfied with my results , so I´m building it again and different way.

ad 1. There was no good reason... it was only wrong attempt , the step aside :D

ad 2. My source is one guy from america... he is building the most excelent model I have ever seen and he is my great inspiration... you can see it yourself there :

hello wedge,

glad to see your next attempt here, as your first one already looked quite promising !!! As for the references, the ultimate source are David Week's drawings, I guess nearly no serious attempt of scratch building a LEM model was done without them ...

best greetings
Cyana

Hello wedge,

thank you for passing on this fantastic link - these blueprints are outstanding ! Do you maybe know which scale they are ? I see the figures but it is hard to tell what units are given.

Hope to see more from your LEM soon !

best greetings

Hey cyana,

wenn ich mal für wedge antworten darf:
unten rechts steht in dem Kasten der Maßstab: 1:24. Welche Einheiten in den blueprints angegeben sind kann man durch ausprobieren herausfinden.
Herzliche Grüße
Gerald

for cyana : Gerald is absolutely right :]

there is another side with its "bones" . A little hole on the left side is prepared for the green docking light ( I´m not sure if I want it shine yet )
