The scale is 1:12th. Terrific job Steve. I really like the tracks in the moon's surface.

Where's this model in Shapeways? Where do you get the V-2 engine kit?

Thanks to everybody for the positive replies. Thanks also to Steve for all his hard work in building such a fantastic diorama. My thanks also go to Ron Shinkle for producing such a fantastic replica of the LRV. I will be really proud to add this fantastic piece to my collection.

It is a very nice and big model indeed but the only problem is the rear pallet that was used for Apollo 15 and 16, the Apollo 17 pallet was quite different. The model show some particular features of the Apollo 17 LRV like the broken fender and the SEP antenna but unfortunatly the rear pallet is wrong and the one from Apollo 16 or 15.

Below are the Apollo 16 LRV and the Apollo 17 for comparison. Apollo 15 was quite similar to Apollo 16 except the TV camera didn't have the sunshield.

The V-2 engine kit was done by RP modeling, Rick Palumbo. This was actually the master and no more will be produced.

Fantastic build, I like the look of that revised high gain. The LMP is a nice touch, something I will add myself soon. Is the LMP a new addition to Shapeways? As I searched the site for a standing astronaut a few months ago in 1/12 with no luck, so I just molded my other. I really like the moon base, the little craters are cool. Great work mate.

Beautiful work on the rover and V-2 Steve!!! The addition of the beautifully painted figures really make the rover come alive. Great base too — very realistic. Well done!

Revell's really cool "enhanced" International Space Station built straight out of the box for a fellow cS'er.

I had a lot of fun painting the Earth too!

Beautiful work Steve!!! I sure hope that your customer is picking that up. It would be nearly impossible to ship that!

While we celebrate human achievements in our history of manned space flight, we also must reflect on our past of human suffering connected to our history.

This statue will sit along side the V-2 diorama that was built for a fellow cSer. The figural group by Jurgen von Wyoski.

Thanks all, I must point out the sculpture is actually a Shapeways product designed by a friend while I did the painting.

Nice work, Steve (as always). I'm especially pleased at my fellow cS member, who understands what von Braun was responsible for. (The next statue grouping should be a London East-end family.)

Thank you everyone!

Excellent!! Question... If you were commissioned to build one, what would it cost?
