Beautiful work as always Pascal!

One question though... didn't Lovell's suit have red bands on the arms and legs? Any reason you didn't include them?

An amazing model of what could have been, and what should have been. I like the anchor touch on the LEVA visor, just like his real one. GO NAVY.

My first 1:12 Eugene Cernan resin kit figure diorama on wooden base. Kit from sculptor Ignacio Bern Acer Alpera.

Great kit!! And easier to do than the Buzz version.

Super Pascal. Nice research on a piece I had not seen before. If others are not familiar with the 1:20 Saturn V engine I can tell you this is a very large model.

Great stuff as always, 55 years ago that "Moonsuit" was on the cover of LIFE magazine (issue April 27, 1962).

Here is my last build model in commission space museum, this classic model, I think some people know this model, it's the valley force space ship from the 1972 movie "Silent Running."

Scale 1/650 150 cm almost long and yet hard kit, but with result I'm happy with it.

Impressive job! The film Silent Running is one of my favorites, so I really enjoyed seeing the photographs of your model.

Very nice! And one can see how complex and difficult it must have been to build - impressive!

Pascal, that is amazing. Can you give us more info on how you did it? Was the truss stick built? I looks infinitely complex.

And the large grey piece; was that 3D printed? Were there other 3D printed parts like the clear parts? And who did the 3D computer work. Thanks.

Excellent. Historically accurate and beautiful all at the same time. Nobody can do the visors as well as you do. And that is a huge part of a diorama like this. Keep it up.
