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
Very long time but there is the new version

Looks promosing - sieht vielversprechend aus! =D>
your idea looks great.
The material is used from the barbecue saucer ( I dont know the right word ) When I saw this material , it was the impulse for the whole idea to build the LM

incredible good looking ... :super:
This LEM will be another masterpiece of you.
Best regards, Woody
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 You won´t see them
So ... I have completed my Moldy Crow ( nobody noticed ) , so I can go back to my LM scratchbuild. There is newest photo , so as you can see LM is not dead yet
Hi wedge (German: Der Keil) :D,
What do you mean with "nobody noticed" ?Quote

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
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 :
There is the new beginning

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 ...

Hello Cyana , thank you for such a kind words. About the drawings - I don´t have them , but I have the blueprints from this site ( my greatest inspiration !!! )
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 !
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.
*rotanlauf* manchmal hab ich Tomaten auf den Augen
danke für den Hinweis !
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 )
