In the process of moving house and the U.S. flag on my Franklin Mint lunar module just fell off (with a corner no longer there) from the descent stage.

Others have experienced that I know. Grates as I haven't touched it for over a decade Did anyone know of where you could get a replacement?

Although these decals are for the Revell, Monogram or Dragon 1/48 scale Lunar Module models, they are the right scale for the Frankin Mint LM as well.

Thank you most kindly. I would have had no hope of finding that out without your assistance.

I have a Franklin Mint LM inside a Lucite display case. It was dropped in 1999 while moving from one house to another, causing damage to an S-Band antenna. I very carefully repaired it myself.

It sounds like an lot of these LMs were damaged in shipping or by neglect. Mine was originally purchased at a Franklin Mint store in the Detroit area.
