Thanks Steve!

The last moon diorama this year people, from the kit New Ware "The Last Men on the Moon," scale 1/24. The theme calls spilling is killing...

 

Both visors this time in red copper (gold are these days to expensive) but almost the same result. There also selfmade two little brass hammers and Schmitt cracks a moon rock and Cernan is spilling moonsand and it drops on the surface...

Size diorama nine inch by four inch, weight six pounds.

It's December, for some model builders the month of leftovers -- styrene parts, paint and more -- or a broken space shuttle toy someone has almost thrown away.

The booster was very damaged and I have made a new one out of styrene, then made a new base and with a spray can PU Foam to make launch clouds, here and there paint details and you have something new for on the desk.

Throwing it away is sometimes a pity. the name: "Atlantis, you are go at throttle up..."

Here the end result of a diorama with a piece real space and science fiction together.

The astronaut with MMU pick up a Belgium/Dutch solar panel unit in space. The solar panel is broken, it can not more close for 100%.

The astronaut is a toy figure, the MMU is made self by me and the solar panel also. The MMU and astronaut has got after put together a layer copper on it, that was for two reasons, it becomes stronger and visor has a nice mirror look.

Theme calls recovery mission by MMU shuttle astronaut:

I have several of Pascal's displays and he continues to amaze me. I visited him several times and I can assure you he is a real artist but most of all a great guy.

Keep up the good work in 2011 Pascal!!!

I already did. My study has become a Hecker museum, I can tell you. As I said before Pascal is a great artist and a great friend.He has so many ideas and I never tell him what I want, just the theme, and then he comes up with something incredibly good. I have some models that have better detail than Code 3 and they are the only model that exist, so quite original and a joy to look at every day.

I'm busy with a few dioramas. First a big one with two astronauts.

And I made a brass tool carrier with canvas holder with some extra tooks, such a kamer, scoop, all 1/16 out of brass... a little sweet model on his own. And as last a layer real silver over it. It's now become one piece.

Thanks alexbaja.

Here the first of three memorial dioramas, this one was built for a friend in the Netherlands. He wanted to have one related to Christa McAuliffe of STS-51L.

Pascal - as usual your art if fantastic. What is the symbolism behind the cut up American flag and shapes on the Christa McAuliffe memorial display?

Thanks garymilgrom, that was for the slight effect on the diorama with a light (shadow), if it was close, there was a too much dark effect on the figure...

Well I guess I read too much into it as I thought of it as the broken hearts of all Americans that day.

Here the last diorama out of the three series, this one is in memorial of Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert. A lot of work to change this Reheat 1/16 figure. I have change the suit details, real glass bubble helmet, one pov in his hand with real layer silver on it and much more details. The bubble helmet was a very fragile job.

This them calls: "I'm gonna give these guys a beautiful ride."

Thanks people.

I use still spray cans Steve, with car paint and primer, but I'm have buy me a compressor to learn also paint with that. But it's goes not easy as I thought. I think a question of time.

They're all great, but I took a closer look at your slideshow of the Skylab build and so now have a better sense of how small that model actually is. Very impressive work!
