Here the first LM done and arrived safe in the US, shipping in two sections.

This a the 1/32 LM cutaway education version. Parts are to get by Shapeways, design by Vincent Meens. Some parts as the descent module I did build up out styrene and all ribs on descent and ascent stage, tanks, etc.

The next one is the 1/24 Apollo 11.

That is a true work of art.

It's a great testament to Vincent's skills and the amount of work that went into the CAD for those parts and the design and your craftsmanship and artistry. Is this a commissioned piece?

Done today the last one out set , this very nice kit from Accurate Models (Jim Key), the 1:12 Gemini ejection seat version, the first one was standard version (Neil Armstrong) and the second (Ed White) I did some extra added, which is easy with this kit. In short, nice kit with very much high details.

Fabulous and indescribable work, but you need to change one thing... That Yankees hat needs to be changed to a Red Sox hat.

All these models are mindblowingly good and I almost hate to bring this up but you may want to know for the sake of precise technical accuracy:

During the hammer and feather experiment, Dave Scott was NOT wearing the suit mounted Hasselblad camera. It's a mistake that Alan Bean repeated in his painting of the event too.

Again sorry to point this out since your work is so awesome and you don't need nitpicking!

Well-spotted but that's "artistic freedom" by Alan Bean, but as a Google search "Hammer & Feather" will point out, there are some more accurate paintings made by other space artists.

Moreover, Pascal mentioned the little Hasselblad can be removed from the figurine.

Well, I don't want to go too far off topic because the subject is Pascal's very awesome models and dioramas, but when one ascribes "artistic freedom" to Capt. Bean's mistakes one is incorrect. They were simply mistakes. Capt. Bean used to talk openly about any mistakes in his paintings and they were not intentional and often bugged him.

I had several conversations with him because of my high interest in his work and desire to acquire his pieces for my collection. I was at the fantastic display of his paintings at the Smithsonian in 2009 (Painting Apollo) for the 40th anniversary.

Just one example of how his mistakes (few that they are) used to bug him is when he mistakenly painted Neil in "First Men: Neil Armstrong" with his NASA Omega wristwatch on (others of Bean's paintings have Neil with the watch on too such as "Giant Leap" and "First Human Footprint"). Of course, it's well known that Neil left his watch back at the AOT and was not wearing it during his historic moonwalk. Capt. Bean eventually went back years after completing the large masterpiece "First Men: Neil Armstrong" and painted the watch out (before the print series was released) correcting the mistake for this particular painting. If you're curious, it's easy to find before and after pictures of this on the web.

Now, back to Pascal and his great models.
